THE NEWS. Frederick, Maryland 4. MM Page B-5 Berkovits Gets High Honors SO WHO BELIEVES IN SIGNS? - A Brookville, Pa. motorist's car was damaged yesterday when it was struck by a tractor trailer while parked along the street. The car ended up on top of the accident prevention reminder sign. No one was injured in the accident.-(AP Wirephoto) Barouh V. Berkovits of the American Optical Corporation Research Department has been awarded the Great Seal of the University of Padua in recognition of his contributions to the advancement of cardiovascular research,, it was announced by Dr. Stephen M. MacNeille, Vice President of Research at American Optical. Berkovits, who is head of cardiovascular research at the corporation's Framingham, Mass., research laboratory was in Italy to deliver a lecture on heart pacing and to demonstrate a newly developed twostage demand heart pacer. The medal was presented by Professor M. Morea of the ancient University's department of cardiology at a dinner attended by distinguished scholars of the university and 50 of Italy's leading cardiologists. Padua, the second oldest university in the world, was established in 1222. Last year Berkovits was named an honorary Associate in Surgery by the Harvard Medical School, and a Consultant in Surger by the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston. Berkovits directed the AO research projects which resulted in the development of the original Demand Pacemaker. The AO Demand Pacemaker was the first such device activated by the actual failure of the heart's natural rhythm. He is the author, or co-author of 46 technical papers, covering a wide range of subjects related to electronic heart monitoring or electronic heart therapy. He is the holder of patents on the Cardioverter, DC Defibrillator and Demand Pacemaker. TOURIST STEAMBOAT LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)-The sternwheel paddleboat owned jointly by Louisville and Jefferson County, Ky.,"BelleofLoui»- ville," was built in 1914 for use on the Mississippi River. The steamboat now is used for tourist cruises on the Ohio River near the city. He developed the DC Defibrillator and the Cardioverter, instruments used in the treatment of patients with abnormal heart rhythms. The early research connected with these instruments was performed at Harvard Medical School and at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. A native of Czechoslovakia, Berkovits graduated from Charles University of Prague in 1949. From 1949 until 1956, he was a consultant in electronic instrumentation at the Hadassa Hospital and Medical School and chief electronic engineer at the Hebrew University, Nuclear Research Department, both in Jerusalem. In li56, Berkovits came to the United States and in 1959 he joined American Optical Corporation as manager of cardiovascular research. Court News 'Hearfmobf/e 1 Saw'ng Lives Over Montgomery County Area Most places in the U. S. you are better off being in a highway accident than having a heart attack, but not in Bethesda. Most communities have highly developed, well-trained rescue units (police, fire or first aid) capable of dealing with the contusions, abrasions, fractures and hemorrhages that go with automobile crashes. But despite all that the medical profession has learned over the past decade about treating heart ailments, 65% of all coronary heart victims die before reaching the hospital. Montgomery County, where Bethesda is located, is a bedroom community just North of Washington, D. C. with a population of 530,800 people in an area 25 by 20 miles. An extremely high proportion of the county's inhabitants lead sedentary lives in government-connected activities and its death rate from coronary heart disease is 20% higher than the national average. With help from a variety of volunteer, federal and commercial organizations, the Montgomery County Heart Association has launched an experimental program to reduce the number of fatal heart attack victims. Heart of the experiment is an elaborately equipped "heart- mobile" designed to provide emergency professional diagnosis and treatment during the critical minutes immediately following a heart attack. The Montgomery County program is different from the half dozen other heartmobile programs throughout the world in that the personnel manning the ambulance are paramedical and no doctor is needed at the scene. The physician's services are provided instead through a sophisticated comnvrucations system that allows him to oversee treatment from the hospital or even from his own home. Along with a medical kit, a resuscitator, oxygen supplies and a portable defibrillator, the rescue crew takes to the scene of the illness a low power transmitter. Through another more powerful transmitter in the truck linked to the low power transmitter, two-way voice communications can be maintained with the doctor and electrocardia- grams can be transmitted to him for his diagnosis. Once the patient is stabilized, he can be removed to the van for transportation to the hospital. Communication with the physician can be maintained during the entire trip. The van itself js equipped with a demand pacemaker, cardioverter, resuscitator, and an EKG and pulse recorder linked to the transmitter. In fact, the heartmobile is a combination intensive cardiac care unit and communications center. Headquarters for the heart- mobile is Holy Cross Hospital which is within a six mile radius of 75% of the population of Montgomery County. The crew uses the emergency room of Holy Cross for a stand-by area. All emergencies in Montgomery County are handled at a central communications board with a common emergency number. If the board receives a call that sounds as if the patient might be suffering a heart attack, the heartmobile rolls to the scene along with other emergency vehicles required. Members of the county rescue crews are also familiar with the signs of heart attack and because there are more of them, they usually reach the scene before the heartraobile. If the patient is patiently not suffering from a heart attack, the rescue squad can stop the heartmobile enroute and send it back to the hospital* Sponsorship for the emergency cardiac-care program comes from a grant from the Max Baer VALUES you can measure on Men's Clothes Save up to 40% YV ^1 buy direct from the factory HARTLEY'S 1209 East Street Rear OPPOSITE MONOCAGY VILLAGE SHOPPING CENTER FREDERICK, MD.

The company also rained the van's emergency crew in the use of the equipment and plans to donate it to the Mont- jomery County Heart Associa- ion at the end of a year's study. More important than the heart- mobile's immediate role as a ife saving device is the data it will gather in a year-long study LOVE LORN PORT MORESBY, New Guinea AP)-Piake Kitakita set her cap for a village leader, then went off into the Popuan jungle in huff when he rejected her. Her friends at Mumuni village n the northwest of the Western District searched, but failed to find her. That was nine years ago. Recently, a Mumuni hunting arty came upon a woman and ·ecognized her as the long-lost Piake Kitakita. They overpowered her and marched triumphantly home. But the story ended sadly. For on the value of an emergency cardiac-care program. In its first three weeks of service working the "high heart attack hours" from 4 p.m. to midnight, the heartmobile answered 40 calls, 15 of which turned out to be true cardiac problems. Of the 15 that the heartmobile treated, the crew feels that perhaps five might have otherwise died. If this rate were maintained over the one year period and 85 lives were saved in this one county, it would seem that the program is well worth the $60,000 cost of building and equipping the heartmobile. some reason Piake sickened and died within a week. Among the chief mourners at her funeral was the man who'd spumed her love in 1961. USES STATE THEATER DANVILLE, Ky.
