An artificial lung that’s small enough to be carried in a backpack has been shown to work in sheep. It’s one of several such devices being developed that could transform the lives of people with lung failure, who are currently dependent on large machines. The new device still requires an oxygen tank to be wheeled around, although tank-free prototypes are also being tested.
CALAS/ACSAL strives to continually elevate the standards of laboratory animal practices to enhance animal welfare and excellence in science through training, certification, and continuing education. Members are trained to strictly adhere to all applicable Canadian laws, guidelines, and policies.
Some practices captured in hidden camera footage aired March 11th by W5 go against the core values and methods of the CALAS organization. We trust that the Canadian Council on Animal Care will perform a prompt and thorough investigation in this matter.
