Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD Tuesday, October 1, 1974 Physicians invited to try it in emergencies Sudden, sharp bear-hug can save a life CHICAGO (AP) A Lsudden, sharp bear-hug can iave the life of someone chok- ig to death on food, a Cincin- surgeon says. It can also some drowning vic- tm._ The pressure from the hug causes food "to pop out like a cork from a champagne says Dr. Henry Heimlich. the surgeon- who developed the technique. When applied to drowning per- sons, "the water gushes out of the mouth." Herald- Family We would like to help you with all your hair needs at the LAKEVIEW BEAUTY SALON 2638 S. Parktide Dr. Phone 327-4843 Dr. Heimlich, director of surgery at Cincinnati's Jewish Hospital, described the technique in the journal Emergency Medicine, and in- vited physicians to try it in real emergencies. Having already proven the method on laboratory dogs, he says he now has 30 letters tell- ing of lives apparently peppermint dislodg- ed from the windpipe of a 22- month-old child, a piece of roast beef from the throat of a HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

S. nine-year-old girl, a Korean woman saved by a United States Army medical officer. The U.S. National Safety Council estimates that Americans choke to death each year from food or other objects, and drown. But Heimlich thinks there are more choking deaths than that Some may be blamed on heart attacks. Some deaths are called "cafe coronaries" because people die in restaurants 'While eating. Choking victims, while con- scious, cannot speak. They turn pale, then blue or black, in great distress. Unaided, they will soon die. Mouth-to- mouth resuscitation only makes matters worse, driving the obstruction deeper into the windpipe. Here is how to perform the Heimlich manoeuvre: behind the person, w'th both arms around the waist, under the person's arms. Form a fist with one hand, and grasp it with the Bother hand, position the fist against the abdomen, just above the navel and just below the rib cage. pressure forcibly, with a quick upward thrust. Because there is always residual air trapped in the lungs, the sudden pressure forces this air upward and the bolus or obstruction is ex- pelled. The manoeuvre may be done if the person is stan- ding, sitting, or draped over the arms. the person is lying face down or on his back, different positions are taken to apply ei- ther the arm lock or the heel of one hand below the rib cage. infants, Heimlich says the best position is to place them across the knee with the leg pressing against the abdomen below the diaphragm. Pressure then is applied upward along the lower part of the baby's neck. victims should be placed on their sides or ly- ing face down, and the pressure applied. Heimlich says he has received letters telling of lives saved by this method. The surgeon says he devised the method as an alternative to tracheotomy, in which a tube is inserted into the wind- pipe. The main danger of the method is that the rescuer will apply too much pressure and crack a rib or two. 'Pear-shaped people more likely to succeed9 LONDON (AP) If you have a shape like a pear, don't let it bother you. You are more likely to succeed in life than most people. At least, that is the non- caloric observation set forth in an article in The Director, journal of the British Institute of Directors. Some of the pear-shaped people who have reached the top, says the article, are Napoleon, Gen. Charles de Gaulle, and British Prime Minister Harold Wilson as well as Wilson's predecessor, Opposition" Leader Edward Heath. The article was written by John Byrne, managing direc- tor of a glass manufacturing firm, who noted that many pear-shaped people showed the qualities of intelligence and leadership. Cook tomorrow's way today with this Litton Moffat microwave oven A microwave oven cooks eight times more quickly than a conventional oven, to save you time, save you power. Microwave energy penetrates the food, causing the molecules to vibrate, which in turn causes friction and creates heat. That's why you can bake a potato in only five minutes. A meat loaf in seven minutes. A rolled rib roast in 6Vz minutes per pound. So foods taste fresher... better, because flavour and moisture are sealed in. And there's no mess afterwards So you can cook right on trie serv- mg paates (glass. paper, china) as long as there is no metal.

I am writing to you to ask what my brother and I should do. Our parents need a divorce. They have been married for fourteen years and as long as I can remember they have been fighting. Sometimes I have to close the windows so the neighbors won't hear the names they call each other. Mom cries a lot and Dad has a bad temper. They keep talk- ing about divorce but they nevei do anything about it. My brother and I would be better off if Dad left because he makes us all nervous. What should we do? Big And Lit- tle Dear B. and L.: Show this letter to your parents and tell them you wrote it. Ask them to please get some counselling. Maybe they can learn to live together In peace. If not, they should live apart. But they certainly should try to save their marriage if it's possible. Dear Ann Landers: The average citizen is being taken for a sucker because he can't help himself. I refer to being ripped off by automobile repair shops. The Progressive magazine (out of Madison, Wis.) printed a very good arti- cle with suggestions on how Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public can protect themselves. I hope you will think it is worth Club corner The regular meeting of St. Basil's CWL will be held at p.m. Wednesday in the parish hall.

Here it is Midwest Reader: "At a rundown gas station far from a major interstate highway, a greasy faced mechanic lowers the hood on a hot 70 Malibu and grins, 'That will be Soldier, plus parts.' "With out of state plates on a downed car, you're at the mercy of the closest repair station. But this doesn't mean you'd get a better deal nearer your own home. It's all a part of 'The Great American Automobile Repair Ripoff.' "If twenty five BILLION crisp dollar bills were stacked in the Astrodome and the money was withdrawn only to pay for, auto repairs, every buck would be gone in a year a lot of them wasted. "The best defense is to learn your automobile and how it functions. Considering how much money people tie up in their automobiles, a basic- course or two could certainly be considered an investment. In the meantime, play defen- sively. Here are some rules: "Read warranties and guarantees carefully. Look for loopholes that will cost you later. Do they include labor? "Get an estimate before signing. "Ask to see the flat rate book and ask what the shop's hourly rate is. Don't let a dealer show you a commercial flat rate book for repairs. Commercial books allow more time than factory books. "Get the work order filled out in full before signing. Cross out all blank lines. "Don't take verbal promises from anyone. Get it in writing. "Don't let any shop take your transmission or engine apart until you're sure it needs it. Get another opinion from another shop. "Avoid places that adver- tise heavily. The odds are against you. Good shops don't need to buy ads. "Paint or scratch an iden- tifying mark on major parts to prevent being sold your own gear. "Don't be afraid to back out if the price sounds too high. "If the work isn't done properly, tell the hombre you intend to blow the whistle to the FTC, the DA's office, your state's Office of Consumer Af- fairs, the Better Business Bureau, and anybody else you can think of. .Then do it.
