Dr. Lamb By LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb —Could you write about the diagnosis referred to as "sinus tachycar­ dia" dealing with the heart. Is this diagnosis damaging to the heart? Is there a treatment for it? etc. Dear reader—Doctors use terms to classify different dis eases and even different func tions of the body. Heart spe cialists refer to the normal beating mechanism of the heart at its normal rate, between 60 and 100, as normal sinus rhythm. That is what most of us have when we are resting [quietly and aren't anxious, drinking too much coffee, smoking too many cigarettes or over ly excited about a football game. When the normal heart beating mechanism speeds up so that the rate is over 100 per minute it is called sinus tachy­ cardia. Its real significance depends on its cause. If it is an indication of poor physical condition, one shouljd do something about that problem. If it is from cigarettes and coffee, the answer is obvious. If it is from anxiety, why then one should find out what is producing the anxiety and deal with the basic problem. A fast heart rate is sometimes an indicatiqn of an overactive thyroid. A fast heart rate is just a symptom like an elevated body temperature. If you exercise a little bit so that you speed up your heart, you'll have it! And if you have usual functions for a person in reasonably good physical condition, when you rest, it should disappear. Incidentally, some people have "si nus tachycardia" just because of seeing the doctor.

I had X-rays which my doctor said showed a pelvis too small for a nine pound breech baby to pass through. I didn't have time to give it much thought since I went into labor that same day. I know that you are not to wait until labor begins before a section but my water had broken and my contractions had started coming at about four minutes apart, but they almost stopped in a couple of hours. Now that you know a little something about the problem, would you please give me the straight facts about a section. What are the do 's and don'ts that make a doctor do such surgery? Dear Reader — Perhaps the common good medical indication for Cesarean section is when a normal birth cannot be accomplished through the bony pelvic birth canal. Some women have a small pelvis and measurements accomplished early in pregnancy should identify this problem in most instances. Once a woman has had a Cesarean section many obstetricians then feel that all subsequent pregnancies should also be delivered by Cesarean. The concern here is that the scar from the previous incision in the uterus might rupture during the forceful contractions A normal labor. You are correct in saying that it is preferable, to do the section before the water has broken and before significant contractions have started. The nature of pregnancy and labor, being what it is, it is not too surprising that every once in awhile labor gets well under way or even the water breaks before the woman is able to get to the hospital for operative delivery.
