THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1988 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Your Heart's in Your Hands-4 Doctor Can Help Your Coronary—If You Do Fourth lu A Scries By Ml. WILLIAM A. IIKAMS Distributed by NKA Service NEW YORK ~ (NEA) -A person who's just had a heart attack is not in the niuod Jor jokes. If anyone tells him with sober face that his illness is really a blessing, he'll pray for the strength to slut them. But what • they say may be largely true. A heart attack just severe enought to drive a man to a, doctor is a blessing of sorts in disguise. There are many, mild, unrecognized cases of coronary thrombosis. Unless there has been an attack, the doctor does not have a way of detecting . the process which brings it on. Now that, in this case, he knows, he can give the man proper treatment and try to avoid a recurrence. basic problems: to reduce, prevent or eradicate tlic hardening of your arteries, and to wipe out.the blocking blood clot. But we'rmvc learned effective methods for stopping formation of second clots in either your heart or your legs as you Lie immobile in bed. Anti-coagulant drugs, such as heparin and dicumarol, prevent the blood from forming clots and keep it fluid. They are kept up until you are almost ready to leave the hospital. When they are stopped, your blood returns quickly to Its shorter, normal interval of clot- 1'ulienU sometimes ask us why we cannot continue these drugs for years, to lores tall another' attack. Our answer is we do not know enough about them yet to justify routine use. Other dnijiS you may get, either by mouth or injection, are the so- culled vasodilators, which means •'expanders ot me olood vessels. The one that we use most often is aininophylline. Like so many other items in the treatment of coronary thrombosis, these drugs are valuable simply as an aid to your heart in doing what only nature can do. Your heart is iUs own best healer; onl> H can remove the clot. Give it your best support by heeding your doctor's instructions. Mctercd Gold WAST HAVEN, Conn.

Your heart is hampered sever- ly by the damage done by a blood clot which has dammed up a vital fuel line and cut its supply of oxygen. It is badly in need of a rest until it has had enough time to rebuild its blood vessel system, but it still must continue to work. P)or the moment it stops, you die. We accordingly have to compromise. We cannot pui your heart in a cast or splint, or turn it off for a while as we would tin elee- j trie light. It must keep up its: tireless, day and night as [ it always has. in order to keep j you alive. So the basic item is bed j rest—lying as still as possible, per- i milling vourself to be led and bathed. The quitter you arc, the better chance you sive your heart to mend i itself. But these words, as soon as j said, have to be qualified. For while your heart, it is (run, needs rest for healing, complete rest is bad | for the of your body. 1 If your attack is -HplU, your doc- \ lor will encourage you to change: your position in bed from time to | Mine and Instruct you in gentle Leg < exercises. This eases your muscles, \ .saves you irom soreness and still- j ness and prevents congestion o! . Umps. But most important ol all, it' helps to prevent further clotting. ! If your heart attack , is severe, j however, you cannot exercise on i your own, and the doctor may or- j der ma.'iSiijje. ; In addition to bodily rest, you : also need peace of mind. When you _ get excited or angry, your (Hands '. pioducfi more of their products, ; your muscles tense themselves, your : blood flows faster and your breath ; comes quicker—all of which mean; more work for your heart, So your ! doctor mav draw the. line at any undue excitement, such as that oi ; loo many visitors. i A.s >ou kiiiMv, ihe ronl of your tumble is lack of ox;-, pen.

It may not I be needed at all, or for only a j short lime, but in other cases it is: administered for several days. j The effect is often dramatic. : Oxygen itself, without the help of! drugs, has been known to end the | pain. It also eases the labored i breathing that so often brings great ! distress. i \VV hair not learned to solve the ; TU3SY CLSANS1NQ CREAMS Regular $ 2 size now only H 1 Tnr'lry skin... ; * Tuny Emulsified Ckansmg Gronm . f » For nily or normal skin... • Timy I'ink Clflflnning Crcflm ' ; Companion Sale '.
