BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written lor Enterprises Assn. Q In what way would mod- erate cigarette smoking, over B period of 20 years without ever inhaling, affect Ihe lungs? A Smoking cigarettes with- out inhaling is a good trick if you can do it. This shouldn't cause any lung damage, but re- cent studies have shown that smokers rebrcatho a cea'Uin amount of the air they exhale and that it may contain a dan- gerous level of carbon mon- oxide, the silent killer. Q Docs smoking cigarettes affect a person's vision? A The carbon monoxide in the smoke, especially if in- haled, can cause impaired vis- ion. The smoke in the exhaled air may irritate your conjunc- tiva. Q My Imsband, 72, is sel- dom without a pipe in his mouth. He has a habit of rub- bing the hot pipe stem ovef his lips.

A These capillaries can be removed with an electric needle by a skin specialist but new ones may keep on forming. In the long run, masking cosmet- ics may be the best treatment. Q What causes pscudo- monas? Is there any cure for it? A The Pseudomonas aerti ginosa is a pus forming bac- terium commonly found in wa- ter and soil. It will not invade healthy tissues but may gain a foothold in a wound or in the body of a person who has been taking antibiotics. (Ordi- narily, such pus forming germs as staphylococci hold it in If Lhe infection is localized, washing the wound with one per cent acetic acid may be all that is needed. For a persis- t e n t infection, nitrofurazone, streptomycin and tetracycline are effective if they can be brought into contact with the in- fected part. Doctors Liable For Lawsuits TORONTO (CP) Doctors are leaving themselves open to lawsuits fay patients if they hand out free drug samples without finding out all about the substance first, counsel for the Canadian Medical Protective Association said here.

He urged doctors not to be so fearful of publicity that they be- come willing to settle lawsuits which they have a good chance of winning in court.
