Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 TH! tETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednmday, July WO THE DOCTOR SAYS Treatment Of Burns Still Matter Of Dispute By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. TlB treatment 'of burns is still a much disputed matter. Suffice it to say that several relatively new treatments all give excellent results. Authori- ties agree that the best emer- .gcncy treatment is immediate immersion in a tub or bucket of cold water. This should be continued until the pain often an hour or more. This treatment should not be used if the area burned is so large that it would reduce the body tem- perature because this would add to the danger of shock. The direct application of ice should be avoided because it causes too great a constriction of the Wood vessels. The cold water treatment is of little value after blisters have form- ed. Don't spread grease or oint- ment on your burn without your doctor's advice because the act of spreading adds to the pain. Equally important in the emergency treatment of se- vere burns is the drinking nf a glass of water containing a level teaspoonful of bicar- bonate of soda. Following the acute stage, it is important to prevent infec- tion with the germ, Pseud- omonas aeruginosa, commonly found on the skin. For this pur- pose, a newly developed vac- cine is effective. Other agents include mafenide (Sulfamylon 1 per cent silver sulfadiazine ointment, 0.5 per cent silver nitrate cream 'or 0.1 per cent gentamycin cream. Silicone-soaked mittens aid in the recovery of burned hands. In burns involving the deeper layers of the skin, a skin graft is usually necessary. Q I have divcrilciilltls and have to be on a bland diet. As a result, I am losing weight. Hmv can I gain weight and still stay on my diet? A A bland diet is one that contains .a minimum of rough- age and other gastro-intestinal irritants. Taken in quantities that more than balance your expenditure of energy, you are bound to gain weight. Try eat- ing at least one egg, two cubic inches of cheese, three cubic inches of margarine and four glasses of milk a day, in addi- tion to bread, cereal, custard, Wane mange, ice cream and cake. If you are not gaming, increase the size of the por- tions. It may be hard to get so much food down at first but, as you start to gain, your ap- petite should improve. Q I am a woman. 42. My doctor says I have Turner's syndrome. Would this cause me to have premenstrual head- aches? A Turner's syndrome or gonadal dysgenesis is a oon- genital ovarian deficiency. Headache is not a characteris- tic complaint. Your Horoscope By JEANE DIXON THURSDAY, JULY 23 Your birthday today: This' year the Sun changes today, July 23, from Cancer to Leo at AM Eastern Daylight Time. In other years it changes at different hours, usually during the calendar date July 22. For both Cancer and Leo people born on this date: Your year ahead in- volves much adjustment, which is slower and more dif- ficult foe the late Canccrians than for the early Leos. In either case you must meet the other fellow more than half- way. Today's natives fre- quently have direct psychic knowledge or learn quickly in abrupt, eratic stages.

Give people a chance and the reaction will probably be favorable. Quit at the earliest reasonable moment for diversion. TAURUS (April 20 May Close associates, particularly if they are bored, want to play games or tease today. Attend seriously to neglected chores and keep going. GEMINI (May 21 June Slow-starting morning hours let you settle exact details. With diligence and a bit of good hum- or it's a lively day. Your friends Heart Program Sighted SASKATOON (CP) One of tie first things the victim of a heart attack has to do is unwind, both physically and emotionally. But after that adjustment .has been made, a time comes when the patient should take it less easy and begin his physical rebuilding. Readjusting to the fact that a person's heart isn't what it used to be is frightening. How much is enough exercise? How much is too much? To be on the safe side, the patient should follow his doc- tor's orders. And soon, thanks to a researcher at the Univer- sity of Saskatchewan, the doc- tor will be able to base his or- ders on careful tests of the patient's physical potential. Dr. John Merriman of the university's department o f medicine has developed a pro- gram for assessing the risk factors of exercise on dam- aged or diseased hearts. The program is based on the idea that exrcise'has pre- ventive action against coro- nary artery disease and also has benefits for those recover- ing from a heart attack. STUDY VOLUNTEERS As an indication of the pro- gram's value, Dr. Merriman has been awarded a grant covering a six-month period from the federal de- partment of health and wel- fare to further his research in this area. The research will involve a study of two who have coronary artery dis- ease and those who are likely to get it. Volunteers will be studied for their coronary risk factors and then be divided into a control group and an exercise group. For those in the exercise group, a prescription for exer- cise will be written on the basis of the results of their exercise tolerance test. They will take part in brief, but in- tense, training sessions in the university hospital gymna- sium followed by a snack provided by a dietitian. The sessions will take about an hour and will be scheduled so that Saskatoon businessmen can take part. Coronary artery disease is caused by a buildup of fatty deposits on the walls of the blood vessels that carry blood to the heart muscle, Dr. Mer- riman said. EXERCISE IMPORTANT Just how much fatty deposit is laid .down depends on a of factors, such as the tendency to heart disease in- herited from parents, the types of food eaten (foods high in cholesterol hasten the the amount smoked (smokers are more prone to the amount of work the heart has to do (it's har- der to pump blood through the extra miles of blood vessels for each pound of excess -weight) and the amount of ex- ercise taken (hard exercise, may reduce the fatty materi- Plant Boosts Alta. Industry EDMONTON (CP) A plant expected to process fish from as far away as 350 miles has been opened here. Dave Corney, president of the Freshwater Fish Mar- Ducks Blamed For Highway Accident BELLE PLAINS, Sask. (CP) A mother duck and her brood were blamed Tuesday for an accident Monday on the Trans-Canada Highway in which a tent-trailer was dam- aged and later stolen. Police said Manuel Boguski of Dauphin, Man., swerved his car to avoid a collision with a car driven by Ernest Ryan of Calgary who had stopped sud- denly to avoid hitting the ducks, Mr. Boguski's trailer broke away and was damaged. The damaged trailer was stolen Monday night. ARCHITECT DIES BADEN-BADEN (Reuters) Prof. Egon Eiermann, 65, one of West Germany's most renowned architects, died here in hos- pital. Eiermann's designs for the new Kaiser Wilhelm Memo- rial Church in West Berlin, the West German embassy in Wash- ington and the German pavillion at the 1958 world exhibition in Brussels earned him an interna- tional reputation. keting Corp. of Winnipeg, said the plant was the first of sev- eral new facilities planned by the company to improve the fishing industry in Alberta, Saskatch ewan, Manitoba, northwestern Ontario and the Northwest Territories. The Freshwater corporation was established by co-opera- tion of the four provincial gov- ernments involved and the N.W.T. after a lengthy study. It went into operation in May, 1969. Mr. Corney said the Edmon- ton plant will process between and pounds of fish each year. The closure of Lake Winni- peg and some other Manitoba lakes to fishing because of mercury pollution had in- creased the demand for Alber- ta's northern pike, perch and even mullets. Since the establishment of the corporation, fish prices to fishermen have increased by 35 to 100 per cent while volume of sales continues to rise, Mr. Corney said. He predicted that in a few years the corporation's region will produce from to pounds of fresh- water fish a year. This year's production was expected to roach pounds of which Alberta's share would be EARLY START Trainer J.

Dr. Merriman's exercise tolerance test mea- sures fitness and performance so that an accurate appraisal can be made of the amount of exercise a patient with coro- nary artery disease can take. The exercise test measures the heart rate and blood pres- sure changes and the amount of oxygen the body uses while a person performs a mea- sured amount of work. This is done by using a stationary bi- cycle, a breathing apparatus and electrocardiogram equip- ment. RIDE TO HEALTH A ride on Dr. Merriman's bicycle to nowhere may ac- tually be a ride to better health. During the bicycle ride Dr. Merriman's team carefully watches the equipment and notes any change that would indicate a variation from nor- mal. If the patient has no diffi- culties, he repeats the tests with increased workloads. When all data have been rec- orded a computer helps the team work out the patient's performance record. The doc- tor can then suggest what lev- els 'of exercise can be under- taken. One of Dr. Merriman's pa- tients learned he could safely take up curling again and double his present golfing ac- tivity. The fear of overdoing is dis- sipated by these tests, which means a patient can take it easier emotionally, too. are mora important now.

Lowest Bid Idea Thwarted Says Thatcher REGINA (CP) Premier Thatcher of Saskatchewan said here he is concerned that Manitoba and Alberta govern- ments may be giving local con- tractors preference in award- ing of public works jobs. He told reporters the prairie provinces agreed three or four years ago that tenders on pub- lic works should be awarded to the lowest bidder, regardless of the bidder's home province. "I think it is a good scheme as it saves the taxpayers mon- ey. But unless all live up to the agreement, we will have to give it up Mr. Thatcher said. He said he has asked the question be put on the agenda when the Prairie Economic Council comprised of the three prairie next in Edmonton July 30.

When South had the good; fortune to eliminate his heart loser on dummy's diamond! suit he should have taken out a little insurance by cuting a safety play in trumps. He can afford to give up one trick, so that nothing can be lost by cashing tea j of clubs first. When the Jack appetrt from West's hand, it become! routine to continue with small trump and the opposi- tion is thereby limited to OIM club. If only small clubs appear when the ace 'a played, then declarer cashes the ace of spades, rnffs his small spade in dummy and leads another trump. If East has the king where it was originally finessable, he can score only the one trump trick. If West has both tha king and jack of trumps, then the contract Cflu. bft OAKQ4 WEST AJ38Z A7653 VJ1DT S7K832 OJS8J O1085 SOOTH North' 1 0 Pail bidding: East Swth West Pus 1 Pasi ra.ii 24 Pass Pass 4V I'asj Pass C Pass Opening tad; Jack of <7 Scoth'i jump thift rebid rf two spades is forcing to gimo and promises 30 points.
