Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LE1M9MIDGE HERALD Lawrence Lamb Dear Dr. Lamb I have rheumatic heart trouble and can't be very although I am able to do most of my housework. My legs give me lots of trouble.- If I walk out- side much the muscles in my legs hurt My family thinks I should walk a tot and take ex- ercises Will you advise I never see anything written about what a rheumatic patient can Dear Reader You are a victim of changing times in medicine Urging people to exercise mostly to patients or just plain people who have fatty cholesterol deposits in their arteries That includes most of us in the American population who are adult males and most women after the change in life By rheumatic heart disease is a rare problem That is interesting because two of the leading causes of heart disease 50 years ago were syphilis and rheumatic heart disease. Penicillin in particular almost eliminated syphilitic heart disease and sharply decreased the in- cidence of rheumatic heart disease But. just as medical science was conquering these problems our way of life and today atherosclerotic heart disease causing heart attacks and other problems is the big thing The diet the increased use of the lack of exercise all contributed in causing heart disease to remain a major health problem long after rheumatic heart syphilitic heart disease and even congenital heart disease were under pretty good control in modern societies I can't say for certain why your legs hurt when rheumatic heart disease affects the heart's ability to pump blood it limit how much blood you can pump to your legs Then if you exercise too your legs get sore Rheumatic heart disease can cause mild changes which don't limit exercise ability Some good athletes have had rheumatic heart disease it can damageithe heart until little exercisers possible The heart waives may be damaged causing leaky valves causing the heart to be inefficient one or more heart valves may be partially shut because of scar tissue that grows over the valve from the rheumatic in- volvement In many instances damaged valves can be replaced by heart surgery. Whether surgery is indicated or not depends a lot on the condition of the valves and the over-all health of the patient The heart muscle itself can also be damaged by the rheumatic process When the heart is damaged by rheumatic heart disease it may not be possible or desirable to increase exercise much. Each patient has to be studied carefully to find out exactly what he can do Cer- tainly individuals with this problem should not start a do- u-yourself exercise program. Exercise is good for people with rheumatic heart disease IF the heart is in good enough condition to permit it. But only a complete examination to evaluate your exercise tolerance can determine this Send your questions to Dr. in care of this new- P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.

General politick- ing rounds out your current attracts important support Ask Andy Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to John age of for his question- How does an echo An echo is a bouncing sound A loud fans out and travels in all as far as it can go Along the way it grows weaker and finally fades away That if there are no impassable walls m its path For it cannot tavel through a steep solid cliff When the sound of the loud reaches this barrier in its it bounces back. In a few it echos a fainter in your ear. Sounds are somewhat mysterious because we cannot see how they work. They are an invisible form of energy that works behind the scenes Scientists talk about sound waves because the invisible energy travels along in tiny up and down. These mini-shivers are called vibrations In the this vibrating energy makes the molecules vibrate in step with it The jostling air molecules create the noisy sounds that reach our ears to create hearable the invisible energy must pass through something made of molecules This something is called a which may be gaseous air or liquid water or solid steel. Sounds cannot pass through an airless vacuum which is why you cannot hold an or- dinary conversation on the airless moon A loud is started with a punch of energy from your lungs. It starts vibrations in your voice box Various cavities in your mouth and head mold it into the shape of a word. When it exits through -your it fans out in all direc- jostling and vibrating waves and waves of air molecules As sound waves vibrate through the their energy spreads out and grows weaker. After a few hundred even a loud shout fades away into silence But something may happen between here and an echo may occur One good place to catch an echo is in a steep-sided canyon Its solid walls stand in the path of the spreading sound and it can- not get through The vibrating energy hits a steep cliff with a whack that makes it bounce right off This makes the streaming sound waves turn right around and travel back the way they came When they reach your you hear a fainter echo of your loud shout All forms of energy must obey certain traffic regulations Sound energy must obey certain speed limits as it travels through different mediums The speed of sound through ordinary air is about feet per second. Your loud travels at this speed to reach the ca- nyon wall and its echo returns at the same speed And therein lies a very clever measuring trick Shout your loud and start counting the seconds until you hear the echo If you have time to count to the journey to and fro must have been feet The distance between you and must be half which is 500 feet Radio and other forms of energy also make echos. And scientists have clever devices for measuring distances with echos. Sonar echos measure the depth of the ocean floor. Radar echos show the shapes and distances of planes and ships Radar beams also can bounce echos from the golden moon.
