Would the centaurs heart be located in the human half or the horse half?
Can't say the thought has ever crossed our minds but now we have to know!
Thank you @FredWuMD for bringing this raising this question.
While eating cold pizza one night, Dr. Fred Wu began to ponder something unusual: where on earth would one put a defibrillator on a centaur, should they go into cardiac arrest? He tweeted about the predicament and fellow doctors began offering their ideas on the topic.
Below are some of the amusing responses!
Well that's a tense moment when you realize your success might have been influenced by your heart medication. That said, it would be the perfect excuse if he had been knowingly illegally doping. Eh, we take his word for it. Weird problem to have. Sometimes, however, people do lie to their doctors for a multitude of reasons. Here are some stories from doctors who saw right through lying patients.
According to Caters New Agency, the albino pinkbelly sideneck turtle was born with her heart exposed. In humans, this condition is called ectopia cordis, but in veterinary medicine there is no name for the life-threatening genetic defect. Even with her heart beating outside of her shell, the baby turtle, named Hope, has defied the odds and survived. Hope lives with her owner Michael Aquilina in New Jersey. Aquilina, known as AquaMike on Instagram, was given the turtle by a friend who felt Aquilina had the passion and experience to give Hope the longest, happiest life possible. The little turtle arrived at Aquilina's home in November 2018 and continues to grow stronger with each passing day.
