Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - April 1, 1961, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news vol. Sno. 77 it. Pleasant Iowa saturday evening april i. A nil these Days by purge ii. Sokolsky Iines by 111,1 Vinion David Sarnoff chairman of rca., us gifted with imagination i and prescience. He has now come up with a very use Iii idea. Let me quote him i Brough a blend of electronic i computation and communication techniques it would be possible to establish a National medical Clearing bolide which could serve As a Central repository for All the latest medical information. By a combination of communications circuits every major Hospital and medical school in the country could be tied into this Clearing House. Quot if a doctor in a san Francisco Hospital sought the source of information Ort a particular subject. He would simply dial a number. Instantly a relevant bibliography Woald Flash on a television like screen before him. Then when he made his Choice of a particular article he could dial again and get a microfilm version of the article on his the real Point All of tins is that knowledge is being accumulated too rapidly even for the specialists to know a subject in its entirety. Research is done in a thousand places and one place has just reached the moment when something is found that can save a life but that something has not yet worked its Way into medical literature yet this one Little fact might give a sick person a few More years of life. Tile top doctors like the top men in any profession Are very Busy and hard to get to. do not readily interchange staffs never there is always one Man Brilliant imaginative projecting High ideas far beyond the moment who can save a life even by a suggestion. In the critical moments Between Ute and death the Mira Culous does occur and the miraculous is often a great mind that hits the spot. To la is is particularly Rue in the treatment of cancers about which in much is now known and so Many lives Are being saved it takes great j resources and superhuman courage to save a life. Sarnoff a proposal will be established because it is logical tile Day May come when an excellent doctor worried about a detail will be Able to Call a Central Clearing House to ask who knows about this. Those Day s when it is possible to take a plane and be somewhere in a few hours there is no reason Why a life should be endangered or lost because the Man who knows is too far away. Nobody is any longer too far away. Sarnoff a proposal to. More color to incision be used to project knowledge is very valuable he said a a world wide television will peril 1 thousands of physicians by sit in on ii Gnosis and consultations look among specialists of Many a Ion a t ies heart specialists in London will be aide to examine a patient display on the television screen his a rays and cardio Grams and discuss a diagnosis with specialists in new York. Berlin. Paris. Rome. Tokyo or oth r parts of the world. And through instantaneous electronic translation techniques which Are now in or clop or it the Barrier of language difference As real to tile doctor As to the statesman a will be finally what general Sarnoff is really calling our attention to is the need for total utilization of All the de or lop ments in science w hich arc now at our disposal. He recognized that such it i device As color television May be used for much More than exhibiting the Art of Bob Hope or red Skelton to say nothing of Zsa Zsa Gabor. Already television is being used to teach Many subjects. The tune will come when Public demand will require the. Television companies and the so called sponsors to use this device for something More than theater although theater has its place. But does it always have to be murder i sometimes wonder if go it i Sarnoff Ever watches television to see the hours frittered away in miserable trivialities surely unfit for his grandchildren. It must be worrisome to think of what can be done with this medium that is not being done and the responsibility for telling the Public of us possibilities is up to the television Industry the Day May come when this device too will be used to to o lives. Imagine sitting in new York stating a problem to an expert in London.
