Water shrew S Qble to dart the top the water even g the Good News Pacemaker Users Since the first pacemaker was implanted in early 1960 some 400,000 persons ha{'e received implantable pace- makers to correct various heart rhythm irregularities. (The pacemaker corrects a faulty heartbeat by stimula- ting the heart electrically whenever the heart fails to beat on its own.) In a move likely to signi- ficantly change the way in which pacemakers are warran- ted, the world's largest pace- maker company, Medtronie, Inc., recently announced that it would give a patient free' pacemakers for life if the original stops working for any reason during the patient's lifetime. This, so-called "pac- ing for life' warranty also provides medical coverage if the pacemaker stops working because of faulty materials or workmanship. All this should be good news to the 60,000 Americans each year who need a pace- maker to keep their hearts beating normally. The signi- ficance of a pacing for life warranty can bc best appre- ciated by comparing it to ear- lier conventional warranties. Most older pacemakers had mercury-zinc batteries which ran down after about two years, requiring replace- ment of the pacemaker: The pacemaker warranty extended for a similar period. A person receiving a first the age of 40 could therefore expect to .purchase several replacement pacemakers dur- ing a lifetime. Each replace- ment (plus surgical costs) was paid for by the patient or insurer Contrast this with a pacing for life warranty where the patient will only have to purchase the first pacemaker (assuming replacement is for reasons of malfunction or impending battery depletion). A pacing for life warranty, of course, is not simply good will on the part of the pace- maker manufacturer. Recent advances in integrated circuit technology, plus the develop- ment of the lithium battery, have extended the expected service life of newer lithium pacemakers out to 10 years or more. Considering that tbe average pacemaker recipient is 70 years old, many patients will never require a replace- ment. But if a replacement is ne- cessary, it will be paid for by the manufacturer rather than the government or private insurer. And that has to be good news to the pacemaker user, his insurance company, and ultimately perhaps to everyone concerned with ris- ing health costs. An added benefit is that such warranties will undoubt- edly lead to better products. With the cost and risk of ust i!,i (i Call Red Cross to.about CPR- eardiopulmorary resusc'mtiort. zi product failure on its own shoulders, no established high- volume manufacturer can af- ford a lemon. This will likely result in tightened manufac- turing controls, more thor- ough testing, and stricter prod- uct quality standards through- out -- this in an industry that already has some of the strictest quality control stan- dards in the world !times."

The changing weather af- fects the way we feel in both the real. physical sense, and the psychological. Changes in the pressure of the air affect us, as does the relative amount of moisture in the air. so that many people feel' genuine physical "omens" and "signs" in advance of a weather change, and during certain periods. The psychological effect is also great. Psychologists have found that some people asso- ciate cheerfulness with ram, others link it with bright, sunny skies.
