Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IcTHBftlDGE HERALD Tuttday, May 29, 1473 drivers a menace' OTTAWA (CP) Drugged drivers are an increasing men- ace on the roads, says Dr. Ar- thur Peart, head of the Traffic Injury Research Foundation. But prescribed and shelf drugs, not illicit ones, are the greatest problem, he said in aa interview. "Most of the drugs that are being abused by drivers are prescribed d r u g s the usual mood-changing drugs like bar- biturates (steeping pills) and tranquillizers of different kinds, Do your own Plumbing and Heating Repairs COMPLETE PLUMBING and HEATING PARTS STOCK FREE DESIGN and REPAIRING ADVICE DISCOUNT PRICES EUDORF PLUMBING HEATING LTD.

For the most part, he said, drugs are taken by people who want to calm, their nerves or keep themselves pepped up. Relatively few street drugs are used by persons involved in traffic accidents, Dr. Peart said. "Street drugs such as mari- juana, cannabis or other illicit drugs are a small problem in relation to drugs such as barbi- turates ar.d tranquillizers." About four per cent of traffic accidents involve drugs, he said. Considering about persons die in Canadian traffic accidents each year, at least 14 deaths could be linked with drugged drivers. The foundation, a non-profit organization sponsored by med- ical, legal and government agencies and safety associa- tions, will hold its annual meet- ing in Otlav-a June 8. Dr. Peart said recent information about drug abiise and driving will be presented then.

More organ donors sought By BRIAN' McKENNA HALIFAX (CP) Halifax businessman Peler Andrews would like everyone in Nova Scotia to carry an organ donor card. Mr. Andrews, chairman of the province's newly-formed organ donor program for the Kidney Foundation of Canada, has a special reason. Recently his 34-year-old wife Diane, a mother of three young children, was the recip- ient of a kidney transplant at the Victoria General Hospital here. It was a reprieve from a death sentence imposed a dozen years ago. Mrs. Andrews first learned of her kidney disease after running into trouble with first pregnancy. "At the time she was given from two to 10 years to Mr. Andrews said. ''It was quite a blow to a new mar- riage. was before the inven- tion of the artificial kidney. All this L; so new and moving so fast that its hard to realize..... "But she drifted along foi a number of years with grad- ually declining kidney func- tion until January of this year when she finally had fo go on dialysis.'1 Mrs A n d r e w s' five-hour kidney transplant operation on the night of April 8-9 was one of three performed at the Victoria General in a 24-hour period. Since the kidney transplant program began at the hospital four years ago the number of operations has increased dra- matically. Originally about 10 transplants were done an- nually. In the first four months of this year seven have already been performed. The survival rate of the transplants is up to 90 per cent when donors are related to the patient and up to CO per cent in unrelated donor-recipi- ent matchups. Donors range from infante to the middle-aged. Only a number of involved medical complications limit donors The'night Mrs. Andrews had her surgery the same donor provided a kidney for a six- foot powerfully built farmer from Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley region. The next day it was a Halifax businessman. In fact, the only major limi- tation lo the transplant pro- gram is the number of avail- able donors. Recent legisla- tion adopted in the province allows people to will specific organs in the went of their deatli.
