Current available lung models are limited in their ability to provide a realistic representation of a living human lung. As such, medical device companies resort to testing their medical products on animal models while students rely on static models and mannequins to learn about the invasive pleural procedures. However, the anatomy of animal lung is different from human and results obtained may not translate well when applied on the human body. To improve the training of medical personnel, and r...
