Protection possible in heart disease Most only make reso- lutions on New Year's Day, but the Alberta Heart Foundation wants everyone to resolve daily lo protect their hearts against icart attack. By JOE MA No-fault home medical care program. H the doctors are for it, should you be against it? The idea is lo cut down costs by up to 80 per cent to free needed hospital beds, help the patients con- valesce, give volunteers spiritual and financial re- ward, and .save taxpayers' money. Almost too good to be tine? A resolution of the Lethbridge Chamber of Com- merce health committee March 17, 1971 urges: "That the provincial government explore the feasibility establishing residence under private en- terprise or government sponsorship, whereby pa- tients requiring hospital attention, but not requiring 24 hour supervision, could be maintained in resi- dence for the duration of their treatment period, thus providing out patient care at a reduced cost-per- patient and at the same time freeing beds in the hospitals for acute cases." This will presumably and dis- cussed by Premier Lougheed's government, scheduled to have 'its first session March 2. In the meantime, let's see how it works. There are patients who can he treated outside hospitals; those convalescing, those requiring mini- mum nursing care, those under investigations, those undergoing physiotherapy, x-ray treatment, those attending the cancer clinic. On the other hand, there are patients who really need hospital beds. Lethbridge has perhaps the high- est ratio of hospital beds to population in Canada, but we still have a waiting list, and although the new 150-bed Southland Nursing Home will improve the situation, there is no reason why a sound idea should not be exploited. Psychologically, a home atmosphere helps a pa- tient convalesce belter than a hospital one. One feels crippled al a hospital, a senior physician in Leth- bridge points out. "There are the young couples, retired people who could use an extra bit of money, who have rooms to spare, and who can have a certain satisfac- tion by volunteering to take the patients the physician says. Building hospitals is expensive, and the money comes from the taxpayers. Running hospilal beds are also cosily and while they are a must, home-care program appears to be a good answer to part of the problems. A few days ago, a Canadian Press dispatch from Belleville, Ont., reported that the government there has been persuaded to lease a motel as a self-care unit for a five-year period based on the same idea. Just as a piece of information on record: the Alberta Chamber of Commerce policy on health ser- vices, now in the hands of the provincial government, includes this resolution: "That oul patienl day care, night hospi- tal care, plus home care programs should for the sake efficiency and economy, be developed and promoted throughout Ihe February has been declared Hearth Month, and local Heart Fund officials will be canvass- ing for donations. The Alberta Heart Founda- tion proposes that all citizens of Alberta reduce their risk of heart attack by taking the fol- lowing steps: eat foods low in saturated fat? and cholesterol control high blood pressure Ice fishing in Henderson?

A door-to-door canvass of all jusinesses in the city will be- gin Monday to determine if the jusinesscs are properly li- censed by the city and the prov- jice. An amendment to the licens- ing bylaw which was passed by city council Jan. 4 became ef- fective Friday and calls for a flat fee for all businesses not previously licensed by the city. Businesses which were li- censed according to the fee schedule before the amendment will pay the same amount as last year. The fee scale rang- ed from to Renewal licences for these businesses were due Jan. 1 and can be paid now at city hall. The inspection and develop- ment department will further review the licensing bylaw this year to bring as many busi- nesses as possible under the fee schedule. The fee will offset the cost of the annual health and fire de- partment inspections provided to all businesses. ford of Lethbridge, regional fisheries biologist for southern Alberta. "Ice fishing is not a problem anywhere else in the Mr. Radford says, "I don't see why it should be a problem here." The fish and wildlife branch stocks Henderson with yearling rainbow trout an- nually. The cost of these fish on the commercial market would be The biologist says "This ob- viously represents a consider- able investment of funds. Since the effective length of time this lake is open to angling is only about one-half of that of other lakes in this area, we are con- cerned about the loss of avail- able recreational time. "Although we do not foresee the termination of the stocking of Henderson at this time, if at some future date funds become limited, we would be obligated to place a low priority on stock- ing this lake with regard to the other lakes in the area." He suggests that city council give strong consideration to al- lowing ice fishing in the lake. "Even if the zone in which this is permitted does not in- clude the entire lake, this would be he said. Mr. Radford feels there ap- pears to be "undue concern" over the hazards that may be caused by allowing ice fishing in Henderson. He says there arc certain critical periods dur- ing the winter months when the trout are going to die in any event, because of winter kill (lack of oxygen hi the "There are older and retired people who would like to take advantage of ice fishing at Hen- derson. 'Because of the uncertain- ties of the weather and not wanting to get involved in long trips during the winter months, many of these senior citizens would take advantage of Hen- derson ice fishing if it was available. The biologist feels that a pro- lion of Henderson could be blocked off at certain time? during the winter for a trial basis. IIEAKT rir D Heart is the largest single n.yr.f of ieath in Can- ada, kili'-is more han persons eacii -'ear don't smoke cigarettes maintain normal weight exercise moderately and regularly The more risks a person has, warns tile Heart Foundation, the greater the chance of suf- fering a heart attack. Should heart attack occur, the symptoms may vary, but these are the usual warning signs: prolonged heavy pressure or squeezing pain in the centre of the chest behind Uie breast- bone pain may spread to tho shoulders, arm, neck or jaw pain or discomfort Is often accompanied by sweating. Nau- sea, vomiting and shortness of breath may also occur. The decision to obtain help should not be left to the patient alone: it is also the responsi- bility of his family or friends. The need to act promptly when symptoms occur is ur- gent, says the Heart Founda- tion, since most heart attack deaths occur outside the hos- pital before the victim receives medical treatment.
