New Technique Locates Congenital Heart Defect FRANK CAREY niciues, involving the sampling of blood from right heart chambers, sometimes fail to provide sufficiently accurate pre-operalive information." The earlobe was chosen as a measuring spot because light can be passed through it. The passage of the dye affects a beam of light which Irips an "electric eye," thus giving a measurement of the dye. The government scientists said such measurements can be used to locate with exactness the position of any defecl between the heart chambers, thus facilitating surgical repair. Declaring that such defects may cause, the heart to overwork and ultimately fail, if not repaired, the to pinpoint the location of holes eceive exhausted blood and send to the lungs for oxygen.
