"Evaluation of the Caudal Vena Cava Diameter in Canine Patients with Acute Blood Loss"
Presenter: Dr. Kristen Marshall, 3rd Year Resident, Emergency Critical Care
Currently veterinarians rely on non-specific physical exam and laboratory findings to approximate blood volumes. Ultrasound measurement of the caudal vena cava (CdVC) diameter has been described in humans as a reliable indicator of blood volume in traumatized and critically ill patients, and a decrease in CdVC diameter was noted after blood donation in humans. Measurement of CdVC diameter using ultrasound has not been previously evaluated in veterinary patients as a marker of hypovolemia. The intent of this presentation is to describe CdVC diameter measurements on ultrasound in greyhound dogs before and after blood donation to evaluate its usefulness as a marker of blood volume.

Purdue Veterinary Conference is designed to provide continuing education (CE) opportunities for the entire veterinary team. Attendees can earn up to 32 hours of CE. The 2016 Conference will offer new speakers, workshops and special events including a Veterinary Technology 40th Anniversary celebration.
The Centers for Human-Animal Bond (CHAB) Conference is a prestigious event to unite leaders from University centers and institutes focused on research, teaching, and practice related to human-animal interaction. It was first convened 10 years ago and led to a special issue publication in the Journal of Veterinary Medical Education. Over the past decade there have been tremendous advances in the field. To connect and advance key leaders in this multi-disciplinary field, Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine will host the second occurrence of this special, invitation-only event. The first day will be open to the public and feature a lecture and workshops on cutting edge methodology in the field. The second day will consist of interactive discussion and presentations regarding the role, progress, and future trajectory of centers and institutes in advancing the human-animal bond field through collaborative research and education. Attendees for day two will be invited leaders from centers and institutes focused on human-animal bond research and teaching at Universities throughout the United States.
