ACT: Ask University of Virginia To Keep Cats Out Of Pediatrics Labs



BACKGROUND
spacer

Senseless Cruelty To Cats
Why drive plastic tubes down cats' throats, or practice any medical drills on them, given accessibility to high-fidelity simulators? Ask University of Virginia to use its sophisticated medical simulation facility only for pediatric residency labs. With so many animal-free tools, it is cruel to reduce any life to isolation, pain and death.

Dear University of Virginia President Sullivan and Pediatrics Department Faculty:

I respectfully ask the University of Virginia (UVA) to modernize its pediatrics residency program with animal-free instruction, alone. Please utilize UVAís sophisticated medical simulation facility in place of cats and other live animals.

It is senseless to force plastic tubes into the windpipes of cats for intubation drills ó or practice any medical procedures on them ó given availability of high-fidelity simulators such as Laerdalís SimNewB, Gaumardís Premie HAL and PREMIE Blue, and METIís SimBaby.

In fact, human-focused simulators better replicate a newbornís airway, and thus, impart skills more relevant to human anatomy. Animal-free models can also be used repeatedly, thereby cutting cost.

At present, 94 percent of U.S. pediatrics residency programs exclusively rely upon human-related systems in place of cats, ferrets, pigs, dogs, goats and other animals. Please eliminate live animals from UVA pediatrics labs and all training curricula.

With so many advanced animal-free tools, it is simply cruel to reduce any life to isolation, pain and death.

Thank you,

about web petitions
When you use the web petition instead of direct-send, your comments — and everyone else's — come from one place: Our website server.

WEB PETITIONS REQUIRE THE LEAST EFFORT, BUT SOMETIMES CAN:
  • Create a spam effect that angers recipients and hurts outcome for animals.
  • Compel recipients to block the entire petition, so no one's comments get through.


Your own voice makes more impact. Try to change some words in letter.
