The epidural cart that we roll into labor and delivery rooms had a poor organizational system for commonly used items during epidural placement. The tegaderms, tape, and other items were stored in an “organizer” that was essentially a cardboard box sitting on top of the cart;
This system was not straightforward to inventory and it was often discovered, once already in the patient’s room, that items needed to be restocked. As it was a just box resting on top of the cart it was also occasionally knocked onto the floor.
To allow for better restocking and improved access to the individual items, I designed and 3D printed a new organizer. The design implements clear labelling, maximizes utilization of the space, and has suction cups integrated to prevent falling from the cart. The organizer was printed on a Prusa i3 MK3s with a total print time of about 20 hours, printed in 2 parts due to print ped dimension constraints.
Here is the organizer in use:
