Sea Turtle Undergoes Sleeps MJ Style - In A Hyperbaric Chamber

Crazy Sauce!!!

Last August, Kahuna was found near Hutchinson Island in South Florida with nearly 60 percent of her front left flipper missing and several deep lacerations on her right front flipper

Veterinarians at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida, have spent the last nine months trying to rehabilitate her using antibiotics, vitamins and surgery.

Since none of that has helped her recovery Kahaua's vets are trying something new: hyperbaric oxygen therapy!

It's a treatment in which a patient, whether human or, in this case, turtle, breathes 100 percent oxygen intermittently while inside a pressurized treatment chamber (like Michael Jackson did for a while).

Although the science behind the success of hyperbaric therapy is not widely understood, it has been used to treat bone infections in humans and other animals, such as horses and pop stars.
