Ask the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston to End the Use of Pigs when Training Anesthesiologists
Please take a minute to ask University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston department of anesthesiology chair Carin Hagberg, M.D., to replace the use of live pigs in the school's anesthesia workshop with validated human-based training methods. We have
provided text for you, but if you decide to write your own message, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:
- Please replace the use of animals in UTHSCH’s anesthesia
- Anatomical and physiological differences between pigs and
humans render this type of training suboptimal.
- High-fidelity simulators such as Simulab’s CentralLineMan
System and Deep Vessel Venipuncture Pad accurately replicate human anatomy.
