Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THI UTHMIMH HIRAID Monday, Jtnwry 17, 1971 THAW POSES PROBLEMS Thawing temperalures turned frozen turf into ihoe- sfealing mush in Boston's Public Garden to the chagrin of Jane Galvin cf Dedham who was trying to take o shortcut between walkways. Temperatures in Boston soared to 54 degrees. Cardiac health-care program on its way OTTAWA (CP) Canada is only two years away from its first comprehensive cardiac health-care program, tying to- gether early identification, med- ical and surgical treatment and emergency care. Dr. W. J. Keon, Ottawa heart surgeon who leads one element of the developing program, sketched it at a science writers' seminar here. It is designed to serve eastern Ontario's population of about one million, defined as the optl- FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! mum size by a United States commission which designed the model. Several such programs now are operating in U.S. cities. Other Canadian centres are ex- pected to follow with programs of their own. An important feature of the program will be a cardiac refer- ence centre operating round the clock, with surgical and medical experts on call, its own operat- ing rooms and its own 129-bed unit. Another will be "life support centres" and specially-equipped ambulances where anyone striclren with a heart attack will get the necessary emergency care started as soon as possible. IN VABJOUS LOCATIONS The centres might be in office buildings, sports arenas or other places where a doctor or a nurse would normally be found.

Two ambulances are plannei for the eastern Ontario pro- gram. They will have spedally- trained staffs -who -will be Enke< with tbe cardiac reference centre by radio for reporting and instructions. Patients' heart action and other data will be relayed di rectly to the reference centre from ambulances and. Instruc- tions given to the ambulance at- tendants. Dr. Keon estimated that cost of the reference centre and the emergency component would be about f3 million or H million in the first year. Emergency calls would be screened by a doctor or nurse able to spot indications of heart attack and give advice on ur- gent care until the special am- bulance could get there. The entire program also counts heavily on general prac- titioners screening out actual and potential heart patients as early as possible for specialist treatment. Perhaps one-third ol those sent to specialists would receive surgery. SHOULD REDUCE ATTACKS "In the total system, as car- diac health Improves, we should be able to reduce significantly the number of unexpected heart attacks with proper screening and diagnostic Dr. Keon said in an interview. At present, 50 per cent of deaths at all ages an the result of heart disease. Dr. Keon aees i prospect of eliminating virtually all heart transplants through early identi- fication of developing heart problems and corrective sur- gery. He reported last September on the emergency use of surgial grafts to save the lives of meet acute heart patients woo fall into cardiogenic shock. Hith- erto, 95 per cent of such died. By surgically grafting a veto to heart arteries, btoctoges of the arteries are bypassed and blood supply is resumed to tbe dying heart muscle. In emergency use of tbe pro- cedure, Dr. Keon and his team at the Ottawa Civic Hospital have lost only two of 30 patients in cardiogenic shock. Tbe bypass technique eventu- ally could eliminate transplants if applied before the heart mus- cle suffers irreparable damage. Its application depends on de- velopment of reliable ways to find potential heart-attack vic- tims early. Animal art in demand at auction ATLANTA, Ga. finger painting by two chim- panzees drew top money it an auction of amateur art. The chimp work went for at the Atlanta Zoologi- cal Society's Primate Pre- miere here, higher than paintings offered by some of Atlanta's notables, in- cluding Mayor Sam Mas- sell and Gov. Jimmy Carter. Eighty paintings cold {or an average of each. The animal art was turned out mainly by inhab- itants ot the Yerkes Re- gional Primate 'Research Centre. "Chimps like to paint, they have an urge to cre- said Dr. Geoffrey Bourne, director of the 'Caesar-super group' hit by Tory House Leader OTTAWA (CP) If the Tru- deau government is returned to wwer in the next election, It is doubtful that its power could ever be seriously challenged again, says Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin. Mr. Baldwin said in a press release here that the govern- ment's legislative success in the current session has been worse ban the previous session, when one-third of its proposed bills did not get Commons passage. Not the fault of Parliament itself, this was due to the gov- ernment's practice of "moving over to ths congressional sys- tem of legislating by wrapping up the bitter medicine of unpa- atablc proposals inside a sugar coaling of more acceptable measures." He cited the tax, grain stabili- zation and government re-or- ganization bills. Moreover, Mr. Baldwin said, more than half the bills passed since Prime Minister Trudeau took power in 1968 have been amending bills "for the purpose of changing, improving, or prop- ping up earlier laws passed which did not take into account impact they would have on the economy or on the people." "Surely this is a salutary les- son to those who like Mr. Tru- deau and his supporters argue that what this country needs is to elect an autocrat with dicta- torial powers every five years and let him operate without in- terference from Parliament and simply put his record to- tits test at the end of his term of office." Parliament must be itrength- ened, Mr. Baldwin said. "Changes must be examined by members of Parliament who have i doser and more inti- mate contact with the people of Canada than the bureaucrats on the Hill." "Five more years of the type of government we have been ex- posed to would so weaken and diminish the means and the op- portunity to resist the Caesar- super group, It is doubtful if they could ever again be seri- ously challenged.
