Medical 3D printing helps babies

Two doctors work at a university hospital. It is in Michigan, USA. The doctors see babies die. The babies die from problems with breathing. The doctors want to help them.

The doctors meet a baby. He is going to die soon. He has a problem with his airway. The doctors use 3D printing. They make him a splint. It will help him breathe. They give him the splint.

The splint is special. It grows when he grows. It goes away when he is older. It will be gone when he doesn’t need it anymore.

The baby is healthy now! Two more babies are healthy, also.

Difficult words: breathe (to move air to and from your body), 3D printing (when you print a thing), splint (a thing that holds something open).
