Marine Animal Rescue Team Blog: Will Phoenix Rise From the Ashes?

Marine Animal Rescue Team Blog: Will Phoenix Rise From the Ashes? | Marine Biology | Scoop.it

Breaking news from the rescue team:

When this turtle arrived we thought it was dead. After using an ultrasound we noticed it had a heart rate of ~2 beats per minute. We gave emergency meds including atropine to get the heart rate up and dopram to stimulate breathing.

 

We went through several more rounds of emergency medications then intubated the turtle and put it on a respirator inside of the ICU for the night.

 

The following morning the turtle was still with us, barely. Click the picture to read more.
