Dr. Morton Low. 37, Is the son of the late Judge Solon E. Low, bom when judge Low was a school Icacha1 A Stirling. Dr. Low has been involved in a two-year research project at Vancouver General Hospital, and is now head of the hos- pital'.1; department of electroen- cephalography. LEG is a medical tool in which the electric currents of the brain are picked up by sensors attached to the skull. Needle-pens trace graph pal- terns on a sheet of paper ac- cording to the brainwaves, in much the same way as a seis- mograph works. Doctors can analyze the graphs to see what brain prob- lems a patient may have By the end of this year, Dr. Low, also a University ol Brit- ish Columbia neurology profes- sor and physiologist, plans lo place patients with strokes, brain tumors, encephalitis irflamalion of the brain ep- ilepsy and related brain dis- eases under "relentless com- puter surveillance." The computer will free staff now spending full tune monitor- ing the electronic gear connect- ed to intensive-care patients, and will also generate a com- plete file for each patient. "It mil record vital bodj functions, not in seconds but in nanoseconds (one-btllionths of a and record and dis- play all information on a tel- evision screen for medical per- sonnel to Dr. Morton said. "If, for example, the pa- tient's blood pressure suddenly drops, the computer will begin to run a complete check ol functions such as heart rate, and ventrous pressure. "As soon as a change occurs in a brainwave pattern, we'll get the computer to go back into its memory bank per- haps two hours back and create a graph of everything that went on inside that palienl wliieh led up lo the brainwave alteration." of liny lycra caps to fit the baby's head whi ch require only about two minutes to put on. Dr. Low developed that idea The computer will also print from a similar developed out ft summary of each pa tient's electronic record for doctors and attending staff after the care. end ol each dav's The B.C. government has fi- nanced the computer-oriented concept of patient care as a two-year pilot study, and sup- port has also been provided by the Woodward Foundation. Another concept being work- ed out by Dr. Low and electric- al engineer Michael Baker al- lows doctors lo discover for the first time whether a newborn infant's h r a i n is receiving enough oxygen. EEGs will be analyzed to de- termine the oxygen level ac- cording Lo brainwave patterns. In Ihe past, a similar EEC reading on the infant required attaching numerous electrodes to the baby's head, taking about 20 minutes and some- tunes upsetting life-support sys- tems in hospital isolettes de- signed to provide the baby with a controlled environment. Dr. Low supervised creation in Texas with his assistance for NASA astronauts. He is now having larger versions of the newer EEC cap made for use on adults. And the cap may be an in- tegral part of the computer- monitor program: it speeds up and makes much easier the connection of a patient to all the electrodes necessary and the minutes saved could save a critical patient's life. Dr. Low is a graduate of Queen's University, in Kings- ton, Ont., where he obtained lu's MD in I960. After interning he relumed to medical graduate school at Queen's and received an M.Sc. in neuranatomy and neurophysiology. He then moved to Jefferson Davis Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, then lo Baylor College medical faculty in Houston, from which he also received his PhD. In 1967 he moved to UBC as director of the university's new electroencephalography depart- ment. Trail film Lethbridge residents must be interested in southern Alberta's history. About 200 persons packed Into Ihe film room at Ihc Sir Alexan- der Gall Museum Sunday for the screenings of Carly Stew- art's production Hemnants tt Ihe Whoop-Up Trail. The IB mlnule film traces the old whiskey trail from Fort Benton, Montana to Fort Whoop- Up, at Ihe junction of the Belly and Oldman Hivers just south- west of Lethbridge. The color film's narration ex- tensively details the probable experiences of the ox teams which pulled the whiskey-laden wagons, showing various camp- ing spots along the way. The film was financed by the Lethbridge Historical Society, and look Mr. Slewart, a Leth- bridge resident, about a year to film. It is likely the only film ever made tracing 'the trail, which was the only north-south trade route In Ihe area during ils 1868 to 1892 heyday.

No word on bus run application There Is still no word on whether the Alberta Highway Traffic Board will allow North- ern Bus Lines Ltd. oE Leth- bridge to run a scheduled daily bus between tin's city and Cal gary. An application by Northern to extend service to Calgary was opposed at a hearing be- fore the board in Edmonton in May. Steve Kolch, president of Northern and a city alderman, is in California, but a spokes- man in his office said there has been no word from Edmonton about the application. 600 dentists in south There are 600 dentists in Al- berta, including 3G in southern Alberta.
