When gorilla Imani showed signs of trouble during her delivery, she was taken to the Zoo's Harter Veterinary Hospital and the baby was delivered by c-section. The baby, later named Joanne, was full term and weighed 4.6 pounds. She was delivered by a team of San Diego Zoo Global staff and outside consultants, including Dr. Dawn Reeves, a human neonatal specialist from UCSD Medical Center. Then Joanne showed signs of complications believed to be related to the difficult labor—she was put into intensive care to receive oxygen and supplemental fluids. The baby was breathing a lot faster and her heart rate was elevated. They did an x-ray and confirmed that the baby gorilla had a collapsed lung and had to undergo treatment. The care team, including Dr. Mark Greenberg, an anesthesiologist and respiratory specialist from UCSD Medical Center, quickly assembled for a procedure to fix the collapsed lung. After carefully intubating Joanne, they suctioned out a mucus plug that was in her right lung, likely aspirated at the time of delivery. Following the procedure the medical teams were able to re-inflate the lung. After a repeat chest x-ray, both lungs were fully inflated and the procedure was successful.
