Heart pacemaker saves lives DEAR 0R. LAMB -What are the dangers of living without a pace maker when you have a heart, block? My father has had a pacemaker for two yers and is wondering what would happen if he had it removed when the batteries wear out. In the past month it has changed position and is punching through the skin causing a large protrusion. His doctor said he'd never seen that happen before. but it is not dangerous. Also, could he have his heart condition treated with vitamin E? My father lakes an anticoagulant to keep his blood 1 hin. Do you think vitamin E would help this'.' DEAR RKAOER — The kind of heart block you're talking about is associated with a very slow heart rate unless a heart pacemaker is used. The lower chambers normally beat very slowly unless they are stimulates by the upper chambers. Since the lower chambers are responsible for pumping the blood out through the body. when this happens the pulse is very slow. If it s too slow, there won't be enough blood to the brain. and this can cause fainting, convulsions or the heart can even go into a form of standstill or abnormal rhythm. This can be dangerous and can even cause death. The purpose of the MRS. BURK Burk and Kirkpatrick nuptials said The First Church of Christ, Christian in Wood River was the scene of the wedding of Miss Barbara Lynn Kirkpatrick of Wood River and James Darnell Burk of Wood River. The ceremony was performed at 2 p.m. Aug 26 by the Bev. Howard McFadden. A reception was given afterward in the church fellowship hall in Wood River. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ned Kirkpatrick of 980 Poplar, Wood River. The bridegroom's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Orval Burk of 242 S. 9th St., Wood River. The brido wore a gown of chantilly lace and peau de soie with a detachable train. Her veil w a s attached to lace dusters of petals headpiece edged in pearls and crystals. She carried a bouquet of red and white rose buds circled with white lace and satin streamers. Her attendents were Miss Janet Myers, maid of honor, and Mrs. Larry Kirkpatrick, matron of honor and bridesmaids, Miss Carol Tomlonovich, and Miss Teresa Kirkpatrick. The bride is a 1969 graduate of East Alton • Wood River High School. She attended Forest Park Junior College was employed by t h e River Township Hospital in the Central Supply irtment. is a graduate <jf tba same school and plans to attend the University of |lliM& tie was employed by 4ttjp Corp. where be com- pteted a C<H>P program. By Dr. Latvrmce E. Lamb pacemaker is to provide a constant stimulus to the lower chambers of the heart so that the heail rate will be fast enough to pump enough blood for Ihe whole body. Put simply, if the heart pacemaker stops working the heart will become voi~y slosv again, which can cause any of the things 1 mentioned above, including convulsions and death. Literally, that heart pacemaker is saving your Father's life. Removing it would be the same tiling as pulling the plug on life it.sclf. There is no way that vitamin E will replace the function of his electrical pacemaker. It's the same thing as asking if vitamin E could replace a burnt-out fuse in an electric circuit. Interestingly enough, years ago some enthusiasts thought vitamin E would be useful in preventing clotting of the blood but. after extensive clinical trials, most reputable scientists came to the conclusion that it was of no particular value for this purpose. Your father will probably do very well as long as his pacemaker functions, There are hundreds of people who use these and they have lit- terally saved these individuals' lives. It is no secret, so I don't mind m e n t i o n i n g that Justice William 0. Douglas of the United States Supreme Court has worn a pacemaker for a number of years. This has been mentioned repeatedly in the news and it serves to point out that i n el i v i d ual s with the pacemaker can fill an important function and live a full life with the aid of such a device. Let me caution you igain, th o u g h . tinder no circumstances encourage your father to think that he can g e t along without his pacemaker. This could be a life-and-death decision. | DUQQCR • SWIMMING POOLS, • INC. I AND | SPORTING GOODS • 332 W. 8ETHACTO DR.. BETHALTO. ILL. 62OIO | HWY.
