Researchers at Western University have developed a template to making 3D printed stethoscopes, to be used in areas were medical supplies are scarce, like war zones.

The template was created using open source software, which allows the users to adapt the software to their needs and access the software without having to pay licensing fees.

The idea came after the researchers were playing with a toy stethoscope and found it worked very well. That led to the thought of creating a high quality version that could be made out of recycled plastic in places like Gaza where often doctors have little to no access to new equipment.

With the template, the device can be printed in about three hours and costs about $3 to produce.

It is currently already being used by Allied health professionals in Gaza and is part of clinical trials at London Health Sciences.

An engineering report points to anchor rod failure as the most likely cause of last month's bridge collapse in Port Bruce. Elgin county CAO Julie Gonyou updated council Tuesday on possible reasons for failure of the structure spanning Catfish Creek and options for replacement of the bridge that dates back to the 1960s. Council authorized staff to purchase and install a single-lane temporary bridge, at a cost of about $600,000. It will likely be located to the east of the existing structure and be in place within two or three months. It will be employed elsewhere in the county once a permanent bridge has been constructed. No plan has yet been reviewed by county staff for removal of the dump truck perched on the north span of the imperial road bridge.
