Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednaiday, 20, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Mental stress and the heart Dear Dr. Lamb After an I true problem, and helps to elim- examination and chest uiste undue concern about the my doctor I possilnhues or other disastrous cophysiological oscular which are most unlikely reaction with thoracic pain to occur in this setting. Now just what is this" What nature of heart problem could this be? Dear Reader wouldn't be possible for me to verify your doctor's diagnosis, and since the diagnosis is a general term. I can't be too specific. However, the term implies that he doesn't think you have any structural changes in your heart, such as hardening of the arteries or coronary artery di- sease or changes in the heart valve or other problems due to changes in Rather, he the heart itself, thinks whatever problems jou have are related to psychological stresses. Com- monly this means emotional stress and tension which, in your case, apparently causes chest pains since that's what thoracic pain means. Not every chest pain is heart pain, and even certain irregu- larities of the heart can be caused by psychological stress. The medicines that you men- tioned your phsycian has pre- scribed are those which are commonly used to help indivi- duals with these tjpes of prob- lems, as opposed to structural changes in the heart. You should also realize that the di- agnosis means that your doctor doesn't think that you have the kind of heart disease that would ordinarily cause a heart attack, heart failure, or other such problems. "Your question is an important one, and I'm personally con- vinced one of the aspects of treating a person wth chest pain or disturbed function of the heart and circulatory sys- tem related to psychological stress is to reassure him that nothing is wrong with his heart. Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON Dear Dr. Lamb Can jou please define the word costo- chondritis and explain what it is? Dear Reader Costo refers to the ribs. The spaces between the ribs are the intercostal spaces. The arteries along each rib are called the intercostal arteries. Chondro refers to car- tilage, whether it's located in the knee or in the chest. The connections between the bony ribs and sternum are made of cartilage. The area where they join is called costochpndral junctions. Whenever "itis" is used in medicine, it means in- flammation. So, simply expressed, costo- chondritis means inflamma- tion where the bony ribs join the cartilage at the front of the chest along the rib cage. It can cause localized tenderness and pain. The cause for the inflam- mation is usually not under- stood and probably occurs for a variety of reasons. One of the most important points about it .is to recognize that when these areas of the rib cage are in- volved over the front of the chest that it does not mean heart disease. Sometimes the difficulty goes away on its own and other times the area is in- jected with novacaine or other medicines to help relieve pain and the inflammatory reaction, if the condition is severe enough to warrant that.

Let's start from what we know of the general picture. In 24 hours, minus about four minutes, the earth rotates once around its axis, the fine line that runs from pole to pole straight through the centre. The whole globe spins around as one single unit. TMs rota- tion speed as a tutal unit var- ies very little. However, the Big Ball bulges at the equator and the surface curves toward the poles, which are the oppo- site ends of the axis. Hence, the bulging waistline has to ro- tate much faster to keep up with the rest of the spinning surface. The lines of latitude and lon- gitude can give you a rough idea of the rotation speed at any point on the world map. Just remember that any point of the same latitude rotates around at the same speed. How fast it goes can be figured from the distances between longi- tudes. For example, in 24 hours, the entire globe rotates once around a circle of 360 de- grees. These degrees match the half circle meridians that mark the 360 degrees of longitude, the north-south lines that run from pole to pole to pole. Every hour the longitudes rotate 15 de- grees, which is l-24th of a com- plete circle. Hence, the mileage between 15 degrees of longi- tude gives the speed of surface rotation. However, the longi- tudes taper to meet at the poles. As the distance between them decreases, so does the ro- tation speed. At the equator, the longitude degrees are almost 70 miles apart and rotation speed is 050 miles per hour. Where the longitudes meet and pinpoint the poles, rotation is at a stand still. Lines of latitude help us to grade the distances between the longitudes at various points. Every spot on each circle of latitude rotates at the same speed. And everywhere the key to miles per hour is the dis- tance between 15 degrees of longitude. The distance from the equa- tor to the North or South Pole is about miles. It is sec- tioned by 90 latitudes, hence, a third of the distance is 30 de- grees of latiude. Two-thirds is 60 degrees. If we divide the equator's rotation speed by three, we get a rough idea of the rate at which rotation de- creases farther north and south. That is, if the globe were a perfect sphere. At Latitudes 30 degrees North and South, surface rotation should be about 700 miles per hour. At Latitudes 60 degrees, this should decrease to 350 m.p.h. These samples give a gen- eral idea of how, why and where rotation speeds would vary on the surface of a pic- ture "perfect globe. However, our dear old globe bulges here and there, causing irregulari- ties in the placement of its latitudes and longitudes. Ex- perts have allowed for these oddities and measured our samples in more precise met- ric figures. They give the equ- ator's rotation speed as 469 meters per second, which is fairly close to our mileage. But the latitude 30 circle rotates at 403 and latitude 60 at 233 met- ers per second. What's more, satellites and other new devices may refine even these careful measurements. Questions asXed by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.
