ne of the key features of the SICS is our team. Our goal is to serve patient care through research as well as learning young researchers how to conduct it. To keep our research spirit alive we regularly meet in- and outside the hospital.

We are proud of all the students that have contributed and currently are contributing to the SICS. We teach them on Good Clinical Practice and create an environment in which they can obtain skills in systematic reviews, clinical examination and CCUS.
Koen Geertzen – Master student. Investigates possible collaborations with the Emergency Department and the additive value of early CCUS.
Maaike Schagen – Master student. Is currently investigating the possibilities of repeated right ventricular strain measurements.
Hidde Pelsma – Master student. Investigates the association between IVC collapsibility and renal resistive index.
Elsa Doornbos – Master student. Investigates the validation of risk scores in ICU patients.
Xantia Heeres – Master student in pharmacology. Investigates the impact of medication (changes) on outcome in the SICS cohort.
Britt Keuning – Master student. Investigated and reviewed all risk scores predicting mortality in the critically ill.
Devon Dijkhuizen – Bachelor student. Investigated the feasibility of image validation by a medical student.
Jan-Paul de Bruin – Master student. Investigated the use of bedside ultrasonography of the inferior vena cava collapsibility in acute kidney injury prediction.
Nynke van der Veen – Master student. Investigates the possible association between renal resistive index and acute injury in ICU patients
Chantal Dankfort – MD, anesthesiologist in training. Investigates correlation between fractional shortening and cardiac output
Jeroen Boekema – Master student. Conducting research on Cardiac Output in Septic patients
We are proud that we are able to run the SICS for over three years now. Running an ongoing cohort study in the ICU is challenging.
