THESE 16 DOGS ARE HEROES. THEY ARE ALSO PIT BULLS.

Virtually every dog relishes a loving scratch behind the ears and some sweet, vocal praise. But dogs identified as pit bulls get a bad reputation and a lot less love.

Try not to cry as you read the full stories behind these heroic pit bulls here. 

Perfect

Yes!! Always love reading positive stories on the breed.

A transplanted heart does not respond to atropine
This is because atropine affects the vagus nerve (parasympathetic innervation of the heart), not the heart itself.
Since a transplanted heart is not connected to the recipient’s nerves, atropine will have limited or no effect on the donor heart. Neither will vagal stimulation like Valsalva maneuvre or carotid massage
Eventually however, there may be some regeneration of nervous innervation to the new heart; mostly sympathetic, but also parasympathetic nerves. In that case, atropine might work.
But the treatment of choice in hemodynamically significant bradycardia in heart recipients, is pacing (according to ACLS guidelines).

Found this hanging around on my wall, check it out guys.
