Split heard sound can be normal Dear Dr. Lamb Can you explain what the term "split second sound" means in refer- ence to the heart? Is it serious or similar to a heart murmur? Is heredity important in this condition? Dear Reader There axe two main heart sounds. Put your ear to someone's chest over the heart and you will hear the lub-dub, lub-dub of the heart beat. The lub Is the first sound and the dub the second sound. Actually, each of these sounds has two parts. The first sound is from the closing of two valves between the upper and lower chamber of the heart, one on each side, right and left. These valves dose to prevent blood from rushing backward when the lower heart chambers are contracting to pump blood to the body and lungs. The second heart sound oc- curs when the heart stops eject- irg blood and the valves to the two big arteries from the heart close. One artery is the pukrara- ary artery to send blood to the lungs and the other is the aor- ta to send blood to the rest of the body. These valves close to prevent blood from running back into the heart. The first part of the second sound is from the closure of the valve in the aorta and the sec- ond part from the closure of the valve in the pulmonary ar- tery. When these valves close at the same time, there Is only one audible second If there is a delay in closure of one of these valves, usually the one in the pulmonary ar toy, the second sound will be split that is, you can hear the sound of closure of the aor tic valve before you hear the sound of closure of the pulmon- ary valve. In many normal young peo- ple this occurs normally anc can be demonstrated in differ- ent phases of breathing. This is a normal split second sound. It doesn't mean a thing. When the time for the split- ting is abnormally long or i there is some unusual relation- ship to breathing, it can be an important clue to a defect In the heart. Thus, like murmurs that you asked about, it can be unimportant or it can be very important and only by knowing the complete medical picture can one be sure if It ho> significance or not. k Dear Dr. Lamb My doctor tells me I have hyper-insuUn- ism. Is that the same thing as hypoglycemia or is hyperinsu- Imisrn a lesser degree of low blood sugar? Dear Reader They are ill the same thing. Inc r e a s e d amounts of insulin (hyperinsu- linism) cause a decrease in glu- cose (hypoglycemia) in the blood, commonly referred to as low blood sugar.

PISCES (Fell. 19-Mareh 20) A cense of humor makes the day. Family and group veh tures produce well. Keep at it you'll have erratic bufeffectivi encouragement. By The Chicago Tribune Why we shiver Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Nan Williams, age 10, of Huston, Louisiana, for her question: Why does the cold make us shiver? The human body performs numerous duties automatically without our permission. This is fine, because nobody knows1 enough to tell it now to digest its food, keep its heart beating and dozens ot other miraculous things it does for itself. But even such a living miracle sometimes needs help. It prods us to feed it by making us fee hungry. It reminds us to warm things up by making us shiver Most of the time, the weather is so comfortable that we hard ly notice It. This Is because the temperature is just right for the' body. In order to carry on Alcohol No. 1 killer BRESLAU (CP) Dr, H. B. Cotnain, Ontario's super- vising coroner, says alcohol is still the most devastating drug In use. He told 110 policemen from four counties gathered in this community northeast of Toron- to: "Alcohol still lops the list as a killer a fact easily lost sight of when the attention of the public is focused on the exotic drugs." Dr. Cotnam said 563 deaths across Ontario were attributed to drugs in 1971. Alcohol was responsible for 300 of them M per cent of the total. And a great number of deaths due to acute alcoholism never are reported to a coroner, he added. Alcoholics who die at home or in hospital never appear as a coroner's case and seldom is al- cohol ever mentioned as a fac- ,or in their death "even though it may be well-known in the communitv that the man never drew a sober breath in 40 years." Dr. Cotnam predicted a lar- ;er number of heroin deaths il he use of the drug continues o spread in Canada. He noted that only 100 oil cides were retried in Ontario n 1962 and that amber rose to 900 by 1971. "It doesn't mean suicides are up that he said, "it means simply that these deaths are being called what they art supposed to be suicides." Appeal campaign to continue despite report CALGARY (CP) Plans for the "city's 1972 United Appeal campaign will continue despite a report saying it and the So- cial Planning Council lacks en- thusiasm. Walter B. Dingle, president of Jus year's campaign, said his 40 member board will study .he document which calls for the abandonment of the United Appeal and Social Planning Council as they now exist. The report, announced at a news conference Tuesday, urg- ed the formation of a new .struc- ture embracing both bodies. It was based on a survey conducted by University of Cal- jary researchers for a lO-menv committee established by the agencies. The report was ncsented on fewer than 700 re- >lles from questionnaires nailed to residents. OIL CO. SUED SAN JTUNCISCO emational Bird Care Centre la suing Standard Oil of Califor- nia for million damages jver an oil spUl a year ago In Sui Francisco Bay. The suit iled here in slate and federal courts demanded for ictual cleanup expenses from tie collision of two Standard ankers plus million In puni- tive damages. all its wondrous duties, it raus be where things are not too ho and not too cold. Most of the time It can tune itself to sllgh changes in the weather. We feel comfortable until the temperature drops down low Then we feel chilly because the body cannot keep itself as warm as it needs to be. This is the time for us to think of a way to warm things up. We can turn up the furnace or crouch by the fire, we can add a warm sweater or go for a frisky walk. The furnace am the fire make us comfortable again by warming the air around us. The extra sweater helps by holding the body's own teat close to the skin, so that cold air cannot steal It The brisk walk, of course, is exercise. It warms us up be cause the moving muscles burn up sugary food and give of heat. Exercise is the body's own favorite way for keeping warm. And tt has Its own way of telling us about this. When we feel chilly, suppose we do nothing at all to make things warmer. The body gets more uncomfortable and quite Impatient. But unless we de- cide to act, it cannot turn up the furnace or add extra cloth- Ing by Itself. It cannot move around unless vs give permis- sion. So it does the best it can It starts exercising without moving around. The brain 'sends sipials along the nerve fibers. They teU the big muscles in the back, arms and legs to start moving even though they cannot go anywhere without permission. The muscles do the best they can. They start sMv- and shaking. Now we feel really uncomfortable, though ibis is not the reason for it. Those shivering muscles are really exercising. And when they exercise they rnirn un fue' and give offbeat. True, this Is not much exercise and it does not give off much heat. But shiv- ering really does provide a lit- tle extra warmth for the body. What's more, it usually makes us feel so miserablv uncom- fortable that we decide to do something about it. Sometimes all we can do Is light a fire or turn up the fur- nace. Sometimes We can do the job belter. This calls for two operations. First we wrap up in warm outdoor clothing. Then we go outside and enjoy a brisk walk or a peppy game, which is even better. This sort of ex- ercise is just the thing to chase the shivers right out of a chilly day. Questions asiefl by cnlMion of Herald readers should mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
