scil EVECC Research Grant – NEWS

scil animal care company is pleased to announce the 2016 awardee:
Congratulations to Elodie Darnis from the University of Liège, Belgium, and her project “Cardiac FAST”.

The goal of this research project is the development of a standardized and objective method for assessment of caudal vena cava diameter and collapsibility. Once a standardized technique and reference intervals independent of body size have been established, this technique could be evaluated in a clinical setting to adequately monitor intravascular volume status and the need for fluid resuscitation.
