Dear Dr. Lamb Would you please comment en liie Chinese pracUco of as ro i ported by James Rcston of the' New York Times in connection with his emergency appendecto- my during Ms recent visit to Peking? 1 am sure many others would also like Lo hear Uie med-1 ical profession's evaluation of this form of anestlicsia. Dear Header Xoiv you have really put me on the spot. The truth of Ihe matter is. by our concept? of physiology, the locations of nerves in the body, how nerve signals are trans- mitted for paiu and how nerves are blocked, there just isn't any good explanation as to acu- puncture should work, if in fact it does. I can't totally discount tho fact that it might be useful in certain instances, since we are always learning new things about the body, and even new ways in which things arc1 re- layed by the nervous system. There are many feedback mechanisms from the skin itself that cause all sorts of prob- lems. A good example is let- ting the sirin be chilled or cool-1 ed and ending up wilh a stiff I neck. There is anolhc-r aspect of all this and that is the question of hypnotism or suggestibility. The western mind is not as suscep- tible lo hypnotism and cannot produce self induced trances, In fact, I believe it is a perfect- ly fair statement to make that the vast majority of western physicians have little or no knowledge of hypnotism. As a rade comment, there is prob- ably a reason for this, one be. ing that Freud was opposed to hypnosis and Ihe reason was because of his own problems. He attempted hypnosis and al the end of Ihe hypnotic session his female patient became am- orous and threw her arms around him. This so frightened Freud that he advised against the use of hypnosis. Ever since then hypnosis has not really been explored adequately by psychiatrists or other disci- plines in medicine in the west- em world. It is true, however, that hyp- nosis can be itscd in some in- dividuals to perform major sur- gery, including radical removal of the breast. There are some drawbacks lo hypnosis in that only about 25 per cent of the people in Uie western world can be brought into deep enough hypnosis to perform these kinds of surgical procedures without severe pain. Hypnosis also takes a great deal of lime and patience and time is one thing that the Am- erican physician today is not blessed with. As a group. Ori- entals are much more suscep- tible to hypnotism and 1 can'! help but wonder if this is not a factor in the use of acupunc- ture. I would also guess that a number of the western physi- cians who have made reports on observing acpuneture are sufficiently unsophisticated in hypnotism lo not fully under- stand that this could be a ma- jor factor. It is something that one might keep an open mind on and consider several pos- sibilities that may be at work. For tire moment I doubt very much that it is going to re- place the anesthesia procedures that the Western world has used so successfully for years. What is a lemur? Andy sends a complete 20- volumc set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Ann Gian- carlo, age 12, of Allenlown, Pennsylvania, for her Ques- tion: What sort of animal is a le- mur? The lemur is a fascinating animal for at least two good reasons. One, the furry little creature has a very interesting life style and two. people rarely if ever get a chance tu lake a good look at him. Ac- tually, he is a monkey type animal who makes his homo on the far side of the globe. Even there, he is rarely seen because he comes out from hid- ing only during the night. Off the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean is the trop- ical island of Madagascar. This is Ihe native home of the fas- cinating lemur cousins. Other tropical zones arc occupied by j various apes or monkeys of the primate order. On the island o[ 'Madagascar, the primate order is repssented by the monkey- type lemurs. Most species Ere much prettier and fluffier than the average monkey. They stare vaguely through huge bright eyes and their pointed muzzles give them a rather foxy expres- sion. However, the lemurs have monkey type bodies, complete i with monkey type tails, hands and feet. Like almost all of the primates, they are expert acro- bats and at home in the tree- tops. Olher monkeys chase around during the day, chatter- ing from sunrise to sunset. But not (he lemurs. During the they are fast asleep among th" leafy branches, curled up like kittens with their fluffy tails wrapped around their foxy faces. Not a lemur is to he seen or heard. But oh how the lemur world changes after dark! Their big fuzzy eyes are gifled night vision and their big voices hol- ler through the trees. The Mal- agasy people named them le- murs because this is their word for ghost. These small nimals fill the night with a spooky I chorus of weird wails and scar- j ey shrieks, with agonizing groans and moans. They cer- tainly are though sel- dom seen. While whooping and hollering, they swoop from sha- dow to shadow through Ihe jun- gle foliage. In lemur country, every night sounds like Hallo- ween. But to them, this spooky cla- mor is just normal monkey chatter, while they search for fruit and nuts, bugs and bird eggs among the boughs. Though very shy of peoole lemurs are very fond of each other. Almost always, they live in sizeable groups, sharing their work and play. Most species am cat sized or ral-sizcd. But the giant ol (the- clan is Ihree feet lall. and often stands and walks on the ground. Lemurs have soft, sil- ken coats ranging through var ious shades o! brown and grey. Some have cunning patches of black and white and one spe- cies looks as if he borrowed his tail from a racoon. A female lemur bears only one baby at a time. During the day, the little one sleeps safely in mother's arms. At night, it clings to her silken fur while i she swoops through the trees. I After a year, he or she is big enough to leave her and add a new voice to the nightly clamor. I The mother lemur is then ready to bear and rear another only child. Questions asset!
