Medicine dosing spoons have been discontinued, replaced by 3D printables

[Gregor Herz] Germany’s neuropediatric clinics have recently caught wind of a problem they have faced Orfiril, an anti-convulsant drug used in those clinics to treat children, is usually prescribed for adults and the usual dose is too high for children. Orfiril comes in regular pill-shaped capsules, each capsule contains a set of small medicine-soaked pellets, and if you want to achieve a lower dose, you only need a certain amount of these pellets.

Shown is an Orfiril medicine bottle, with an Orfiril pill capsule next to it, with tiny fungi inside.  Another pill capsule is isolated, the fungus inside a teaspoon.It used to be that you could get a special spoon to help you get the right dose — but sadly, the original supplier has stopped making these. So, our hacker A 3D printable model is designed Instead.

[Gregor] We’re told that many clinics in Germany are facing this exact problem right now, so sharing this model could mean that more hospitals can work around the supply problem. A friendly hobby food-grade 3D printing condition is available, however. He tells about some suitable filament models that you can buy, as well Research food-grade printing requirements – We have one thing spoke in detail, And only this month Saw someone go again with convincing results. Are you interested in printing some of these? If so, would be grateful that there may be a clinic nearby.

We saw a surge in 3D printing for medical use two years ago, when the supply chain was a problem Doctors were in short supply of PPE. And some are critical Parts for the equipment were in short supply. Before that, we sometimes want to see 3D printing has been used to treat serious conditions, When no other option was available. Now 3D printing of medical devices is more accepted, and we can’t wait for more research and hacking on this front!
