Designing patient-specific sleep apnea masks
Published on October 21, 2020
According to sleepapnea.org it’s estimated that about 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, a condition that causes people to stop breathing during the night. This can have detrimental effects on their health. To mitigate the disease, patients can use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine which requires a well-fitting CPAP mask.
In this nTop Live, Evan Pilz, Application Engineer at nTop, demonstrates how nTop can be used to create a conformal, patient-specific CPAP mask.
Watch and learn how to:
- Create a workflow to design patient-specific CPAP masks
- Confirm the workflow is reusable and repeatable for any patient data
- Apply the automation of this workflow into other areas
