Dr. Ilyas Colombowala MD shares how he has created his own 3D printed N95 equivalent mask in collaboration with Intermountain Healthcare in Colorado. Great work and much needed in these times of extreme shortage of PPE.
Happy to report that we’ve developed a 3-D printed mask. Passed N95 equivalent fit-test with Bitrex (surgical wrap as filter, readily available). Wearable all day. Mask can be resterilized/reused. Nylon-12. Thanks to @Intermountain3D for co-development. #COVID19 #PPE pic.twitter.com/Ymruewz0CQ— Ilyas Colombowala, MD, FACC, FHRS (@RhythmMD) April 1, 2020
