Karen Myren & Paul Lobitz in Haiti
Cholera can kill. Thankfully it is easy to treat with the right resources. This is the entrance to the cholera clinic which is heavily guarded due to crime in the area.
I can't believe that this patient is on his 95th liter (yes, liter) of LR and still needs 2 IVs running at 300 mL/hr! We worked alongside and helped teach Haitian medical personel.
The destruction and resulting poverty from the hurricane were still very apparent.
We did, however, find time to relax at the beach with some friends!
We saw more than 200 patients a day at an outpatient clinic in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
