PI‘OBBIIIII‘B eliminates heart llllTTBI‘S

By Erich Kraoel
Sta/f H vriter

A new procedure at UK Hospi-
tal offers people suffering frotn
atrial flutter a life free from costly
and inconvenient medicines.

Dr. Andrea Natale of the Car-
diology Department is one of two
doctors who perform the new pro-
cedure called Catheter Ablation.

This rare procedure is performed
on patients suffering frotn a flutter
in the upper chambers ofthc heart,
and it can cure the abnormality.

The abnormality, or arrhythmia,
is a change in either the speed or

pattern of the heart beat. causing
the heart to beat too rapidly, too
slowly or irregularly. The symp—
toms of this abnormality include
shortness of breath and fatigue.
Catheter Ablation can offer patients
what traditional medication cannot.

“Catheter Ablation is designed
to cure the flutter permanently,"
Natale said. "'l‘raditional
medicine offers patients a lifetime

Long and flexible wires, known
as catheters, are inserted into two
veins in the groin area and in the
arm and guided to the heart. Doc—
tors can then conduct electrical

impulses to and front the heart.
The tip ofthe catheter, controlled
by the doctor. heats tip and
destroys the stuall area of heart
tissue that contains the abnormal
pathway causing the flutter. The
abnormal pathway can no longer
produce the arrhythmia.

“This should correct the prob—
letn altogether." Natale said.

Many patients suffering froin
flutter chose medicinal methods
over Catheter Ablation because
they are not comfortable with the
idea of ha\ing a catheter in their
heart, Natale said.

“The procedure (CA) is rela—
tively low risk." he said. “As long
as (the procedure) is performed by
an experienced doctor."

The results from the initial
three—year testing at Duke L'niver-
sity, in which Natale was involved,
had better results than the tradition-
al medicinal therapy, Natale said.

“Seventydive percent treated
with (I;\ leave with a normal
heartbeat," Natale said. “\Vhere
only 31 percent treated with
medicine regain a normal beat."

Medicine may reduce the heart
beat to control the arrhythmia, said
Salwa Beheiry. clinical coordinator

for l‘ilectrophysitilogy Ser\ lees.

Five percent of patients suffer
ing frotn a flutter that are admit—
ted to the emergency room chose
Catheter :\hlation as a treatment.
Natale said. She said she doesn‘t
want (I.\ to be jttst an alternatne.

“i want people (suffering from
a flutter) to be aware of the advan-
tages that C:\ offers," Natale saltl.

“People can resume In mg a
normal lifestyle when the flutter is
eliminated," Natale said.

There are no side effects linked
with Catheter Ablation. Natale
said. ”The catheter could pttlt'lt'

Some students may have a cat,
a dog or even a snake.

But three students have a pig.

\l'hy would a student want
such a weird or unusual pet?

“It‘s something different."
said Rob Bridges. a management
sophomore and owner of Sadie.
the pig.

Bridges found Sadie through
an advertisement in the paper.
He paid $50.

ller diet consists of 20 pounds
of dog food a week, soitte fruits
and vegetables, and whatever she
finds on the floor. At nine
months, Sadie weighs about 100

“You know when she steps on
your foot,” Bridges said.

Sadie’s owner believes she is a
hybrid of a pot—belly pig and a
normal farm pig. She is black
with a white belly and legs.

She is intelligent, loyal, enter-
taining and people-oriented. She

investigates anything and every—
thing. Sadie stays outside under a
deck. weather permitting.

“She can be 'real stubborn,"
Bridges said. “She'll grunt and
oink if you‘re sitting on her part
ofthc couch."

Sadie does not know any
tricks. Bridges did try to teach
her to sit, btit she would jttst roll
over. Pigs do not ttsttally sit any—
way, he said.

l’igs are supposed to be the
cleanest animals. Btit even Sadie
needs a bath sometimes. Bridges
has given her two buttermilk
baths since buying her in March.
Sounds odd, btit he said it is a
good moisturizer for Sadie’s skin.

confused with a pig, is tntich

The Martin Luther King Cul-
tural Center will be sponsoring
an African Holiday Market today
and tomorrow, as well as next
Dec. II and 13. in 124 Student

. Operating hours are ll) a.m.
to () pan. on all days.

The idea is the brainchild of
Sandra Cairo. She came to Lex-
ington this semester to take
over for Frank X as director of
the cultural center. Since arriv—
ing, she has been under-
whelmed by the cultural offer-
ings of the city.

“Since we're the cultural cen—
ter, we're supposed to offer alter-
natives,” Cairo said. “I don‘t
know if there are man cultural
stores available, in a dition to
the normal mall setting.”

Cairo contacted a group
named Alkehu-Ian in Tennessee
to see if they Would be interested
in participatin in the market.
The group wil serve as vendors
and offer many wares, including
books. artifacts, clothes and
other random gifts for the holi-

Cairo said there was a market
held last year, but she was not

“ l





here for it. She said it was only
fair to offer students at UK the
same options afforded people at
other universities.

Brandi Body agrees.

“I think the African Market is
an excellent idea,“ said Body, a
chemistry sophomore. “I've seen
it at Speltnan (College), but they
do it every weekend. I think it's
good for the campus as a whole
to see the diversity that's within
the campus.

“I think it's a wonderful idea
and I know I'll be there."

Cairo hopes the turnout is
enough so the Lexington Catn-
pus community is fulfilled, but so
is Alkebu-lan.

“I hope people show up, at
least to see that there is differ—
ent stuff out there to buy,”
Cairo said. “Even if people
don't want to buy, I'd at least
like them to stop by and see dif-
ferent things."

At least one student is guaran-
teed to be in the center during
the market. Biology freshman
Ronnie Irving works at the infor-
mation desk of the center and is
thankful for the market.

“l‘m pretty sure it’s not a big
secret that the campus majority is
white, and that blacks are a

And they're off, mouse traps
that is.

About 175 students in an

introductory to mechanical engi-


neering class raced model “drag~
sters" built from mouse traps
yesterday in a day-long competi-

The best l0 dragstcrs from yes-
terday's competition will advance
to the final round to determine
the overall winner.

The final competition starts
today at l p.m. in the College of
Fat ineering‘s ()ld Anderson

The overall winner, second
and third place teams of the two-
day competition will receive a

Cliff Cremers, who teaches the
mechanical engineerin orienta-
tion class, said the stut‘lhnts, who
were divided into 37 teams, will
try to record the best time for
their dragsters.

At the start of the project,

each team received a mouse
trap. Through their intellect
and teamwork, each team

designed a car using the mouse
traps” spring as its source of

The assignment was not only a
chance for students to apply what
they had learned in class but also
a chance for them to apply
“teamwork, and their common
sense and intuition," Cremers

“(The assignment) gave us a
little bit more experience work-
iag‘ with teams,” said Ralph

itlcy, a mechanical engineer-


ing junior.

Stephen Hutchinson, a
mechanical engineering freshman.
said he used “teamwork and a lot
of physics and math."

The race course, designed by
the faculty, is made of a plywood
surface and is six meters long.

Each team's car goes one at a
titne and is timed to the “one-
thousandth of a second,” Cremers

As of yesterday, team No. () was
winning the competition with a
time of 1.7] seconds.

Competition supervisors will
use “electric—eye" li ht beam svss
tems to mark each ( ragster's lin-
ishing time.

Each team will be given two
runs and the vehicle with the
“shortest average time for the two
runs will be the winner." Cremers

Not every dragster is guaran-
teed to finish the course though,
in fact some may never get past

Getting the vehicles to com-
plete the six-meter course is all


about “the timing of the release
ofenergy at a low rate. to .teconr
plish movement." (Ircmers

To create the “perfect car."
groups were assigned the project
in the middle ofthc semester and
many teams have been generating
ideas ever since.

uIt took a lot of guessing and
testing on how to get (the car) to
go further and how to get ll to go
faster." said Dawn (iarten. a

Hutchinson said his team

“bought model airplane wheels
and shaved thetn down to the si/e
we wanted."

In fact sortie teams have been

doing practice runs in Anderson
Hall over the past week to “fine
tune" their vehicles. according to
“M ' group has met to practice
over the past couple of weeks for
at least a few times each week."
Hutchinson said.

UK, city evaluate wellan

By Matthew my
Staff Writer

A UK survey released last month
has given the Lexington-Fayette
Urban County Government legisla-
tors their first comprehensive look
at government—assisted welfare in
the area.

The survey of 173 Fayette
County residents was conducted by
a UK research team. They were
asked by the Urban County Coun-
cil to evaluate the possible success
of the city’s new welfare policy.

Project leader Claudia Peck-
Heath, who is associate dean of
the College of Human Environ-
mental Sciences, said UK’s goal
was to not only help the city ov—
ernrnent, but also to fulfilf its
responsibility to the community.

“The city had a plan for welfare
reform, but needed an evaluative
component,” Peck-Heath said.
“Since UK is a land-grant university,
it has a public service responsibility
that is part of its mission. This pro-

ject was beneficial to everyone
involved, including the public.”

The roject studied uality of
life, we I-being of chil ten and
resources — such as job training,
childcare and transportation ~—
for welfare recipients.

Barbara Curry, social services
commissioner for the Lexington-
Fayette Urban County Govern-
ment, said this project is the first
of many steps.

“This is just the beginning of a
long-term process,” Curry said.
“We have baseline data now. This
gives us a way to monitor and
measure what is happening to our

The survey results showed that
although 62 percent of respon-
dents said they believe they can
find a solid job, those same
respondents were less optimistic
about others in a similar position.
Only 16 percent said they believe
other welfare recipients will be
able to find permanent work.

Peck—Heath said the disparity

between the percentages sug ests
that people realize the difficu ty in
finding work.

“Reform is a very complex issue
with no simple answers,” Peck—
IIeath said. “I would hypothesize
that people feel confident in them-
selves, but subconsciously they know
it will be hard and the wonder if
they can answer the chal enge.”

Similar contradictions were
found as to the effectiveness of wel-
fare as a whole. Althou 80 rcent
said welfare helps peop e get Erick on
their feet, 71 percent also said wel-
fare tends to make people work less.

Peck-I Ieath said the new policy
on welfare for Lexington focuses
on continuing to provide assistance
after recipients find work until they
are firmly rooted in a job where
they can prow'de for their family.

“In the old policy of welfare,
once a person found a job, they
were immediately cut off from wel-
fare,” Peck-Heath said. “Now the
government has created a ‘transi-
tionaI child and medical care' sys—

tem that allows people a transition
period before assistance is cut off.”

The study showed that while 43

ercent of the respondents current-
y hold one or more jobs, 88 per—
cent of those make only between $4
and $7 per hour with no medical
benefits. Peck-Heath said those
percentages show that just holding
a job isn’t good enough.

“We hear that if we just had
more jobs, that would solve the
problem,” she said. “\VeII, you‘ve
got to have jobs with a living wage
with medical benefits."

Peck—Heath said that while the
project may look like a welfare
study on the surface, it is more
importantly a study into the well-
being of children and families who
are havin a difficult time.

“Chil well-being is an area we
want to continue to monitor."
Peck-Heath said.

I’eck-Ileath said UK and the
Urban-County Council hope this
project will serve as the bench-
mark for future research.
