Frangipani Street
To Be Barricaded
A barricade will be installed
Monday, March 31, on Frangipani
Street in Ancon near the laundry,
Building 424.
The purpose of the barricade is
to keep through traffic out of the
residential area.
During a 90-day trial period,
traffic entering the Canal Zone
from Felipe Clement Avenue
(Frangipani Street extension) in
Panama will use President Ken-
nedy Avenue to Gorgas Road to
reach the Personnel Bureau offices
area and Gorgas Hospital.
Frangipani Street will continue
to two-way traffic on both sides of
the barricade. Chepo Street will
be one-way toward Panama.
During this trial period, vehic-
ular conditions will be reviewed
to determine the impact upon the
motoring public and residents of
the area.
A removable barricade was
erected on the same site several
years ago. After it was removed
in November 1971, accident rates
increased due to excessive speed,
congestion and disobedience to
traffic control devices with a
corresponding increase in hazards
to residents. See map on page 4.

New Type F

Being Used
Have you heard of someone who
had a heart attack only a short
time after an electrocardiogram
showed no heart trouble? The pos-
sibility of this occurring is be-
coming less likely with the inven-
tion of a new type of heart exam-
ination known as exercise tolerance
This test, by means of a Multi-
Stage Treadmill, is a service re-
cently established at the Cardiol-
ogy Clinic at Gorgas Hospital. It
has been used for the past 3
months as a clinical tool to diag-
nose and evaluate heart problems
that may not have been revealed
in the routine electrocardiograph
(EKG), the lying down type of
heart examination that most of us
are familiar with.
In addition to evaluating the tol-
erance of the heart, the treadmill
test is valuable to rule out sus-
pected cardiac diseases, helping a
number of persons who are afraid
to exert themselves, often mis-
taking chest pains and other symp-
toms for heart trouble. Leading a


at Gorgas
passive existence for fear of
dropping dead, these individuals
who have missed many of life's
joys, have been given a new lease
on life by the treadmill test that
failed to find heart disease simply
because it wasn't there.
To test the heart in action, dur-
ing the past 40 years or so, doctors
have been using the Master-Two-
Step, a two level platform step
stool test, in which the patient
steps on and off the platform for
a 3-minute period. This heart test
put too much stress on some pa-
tients and not enough on others.
The treadmill test is proving to be
safe, reliable and consequently
more popular with doctors and pa-
tients alike.
In the treadmill exercise toler-
ance test, the patient with three
electrode leads on his chest, walks
on a conveyor belt that is operated
at various speeds while a doctor
and nurse monitor the heart con-
tinuously, stopping the treadmill
should any abnormal heart rate or
blood pressure reading occur.
Giving a written record of the
heart, the monitor automatically
records the blood pressure as it
picks up the pulse rate from the
electrocardiograph and senses the
pulse. These graphic recordings of
the monitor lead are obtained every
minute and the blood pressure
readings every 3 minutes during
the exercise.
Generally, the treadmill test is
given at four 3-minute speeds, the
patient beginning the test by walk-
ing 1.7 miles per hour, then 2.5
mph, then 3.4 mph and 4.2 mph,
on a gradually increasing incline,
remaining on the treadmill during
the four stages.
Prior to the treadmill test, the
patient is given a lying down EKG,
and examined again after the tol-
erance test. The physician and
nurse who administer the test are
constantly with the patient, talk-
ing to him, relying on his reactions
as well as those shown on the
Besides diagnosing and evaluat-
ing cardiac disease, the treadmill
is being used to evaluate exercises
that strengthen the heart and to
establish the responses to exercise
programs that aid cardiovascular
health and the rehabilitation of
heart patients.
On the recommendation of a
physician, approximately 20 pa-
tients are given the treadmill test
at Gorgas Hospital each month.
Testing is scheduled on Monday
and Friday mornings.
Mrs. Patricia Walker, registered
nurse with a master's degree in
cardiovascular rehabilitation, pa-
tient teaching and testing, is in
charge of the Multi-Stage Tread-
mill testing at Gorgas Hospital.



Sixty years ago this month, the
Canal Record gave an analysis of
traffic during the first 6 months of
commercial operation of the Pan-
ama Canal. Between August 15,
1914, and February 15, 1915, a
total of 496 vessels transited the
Canal carrying 2,367,244 tons of
cargo. Over 41 percent of the tran-
siting cargo was in movement be-
tween Atlantic and Pacific ports of
the United States, 21 percent moved
between the United States and
Europe, 21 percent moved between
South America and the United
States and Europe, and 12 percent
moved between the United States
and the Far East. The six prin-
cipal commodities shipped through
the Canal were: grain, nitrates,
coal, refined petroleum products,
lumber and cotton.
0 * 0
The Record also reported the
issuance of a series of stamps by
the Republic of Panama to com-
memorate the opening of the
Canal. The 1-cent stamp showed
a relief map of the Panama Canal;
the 2-cent stamp showed Balboa
"taking possession" of the Pacific
Ocean; the 5-cent stamp carried a
picture of Gatun Locks; and the
10-cent stamp showed Culebra Cut
(since renamed Gaillard Cut) after
the water had been let into the Cut
but before a bridge had been re-

According to the Canal Record, in
those days a Government employee
could rent a room with private
bath at the Hotel Washington in
Colon for $2.25 a night, or a room
with shower for $1.75. For double
occupancy, the rate went up 25
cents. At the Hotel Aspinwall on
Taboga Island, the rates were as
follows: "Employees, dinner, lodg-
ing, and breakfast, $1.50; per day,
employees $2; nonemployecs, $2.50;
servants, and children under 12
years of age, $1; employees staying
2 weeks or longer, $1.75."

The first French vessel to use
the Canal was the Saint Anulre, a
steel freight steamship which tran-
sited on March 16 with 6,800 tons
of ores. The Record reports that
"no official recognition was taken
of the passage of the vessel, just as
none has been taken of the first
vessels of other foreign nations
making use of the Canal, but at
points along the way individuals
gave indications of their apprecia-
tion of the nation which performed
so important work in the building
of the Canal."

A slide on the east bank of the
Culebra Cut directly north of Gold
Hill on March 4 closed the Cut to
traffic. Thanks to the efforts of the
dredging fleet, the way was cleared
for most of the waiting vessels to
transit by March 10.
Among the vessels delayed by
the slide were three ships each of
which represented an epoch in
navigation. Tied up to the upper
approach wall of Pedro Miguel
Locks on March 6, 1915, were the
four-masted steel schooner Spring-
bank, the steamship General Hub-
bard, and the diesel engine ship

The water filtration plant at Mi-
rafiores, which the Record called
"the largest and most complete pu-
rification plant in Central Amer-
ica," was placed in service on Sun-
day, March 14, 1915. The plant at
that time supplied water to all "the
Canal villages south of Paraiso and
the City of Panama."

De Diagn6stico Cardiaco

dHa escuchado usted que alguna

La posibilidad de que esto ocurra
ha disminuido con el invento de un

nario (EKG), el examen clAsico del
coraz6n en que el paciente des-
cansa acostado.
AdemAs de evaluar la tolerancia
del coraz6n, la nueva prueba es
futil para establecer enfermedades

tar muchas formas de divertirse.
Los m6dicos en los fltimos 40

aplicando el sistema Maestro de
Dos Escalones para medir la acti-
vidad del coraz6n. Este consiste en
un m6todo que emplea una plata-

Barricada en

El lunes, 31 de marzo, se insta-
larA una barricada en la Calle Fran-
gipani de Anc6n, cerca del Edificio
424 de la lavanderia.
El prop6sito de esta barricada es
impedir que el trafico general pase
por el Area residential de ese sector.
Durante un period de prueba de
90 dias, el trAfico que entra a la
Zona del Canal desde la Avenida
Felipe Clement extensionn de la
Calle Frangipani) en PanamA, usa-
rA la Avenida Presidente Kennedy
hasta la Calle Gorgas, para llegar
al Area de las Oficinas de Personal
y del Hospital Gorgas.
La Calle Frangipani seguirA sien-
do de dos vias en ambos lados de
la barricada. La Calle Chepo serA
de una sola via en direcci6n a la
ciudad de PanamA.
Durante este period de prueba
se estudiaran las condiciones del
trAfico de vehiculos con el fin de
determinar el impact que causara
esta media.
Hace algunos afios se puso en
ese mismo sitio una barricada remo-
vible. Despu6s que fue retirada en
noviembre de 1971, aumentaron los
accidents debido a velocidad ex-
cesiva, a la congestion del trAnsito
v a la desobediencia a los aparatos
de control de trifico.
En pAgina 4 aparece un mapa
en que se sefiala claramente el
sitio donde se instalarA la barricada.

mis popular entire los m6dicos y
los propios pacientes.
En la prueba de tolerancia, el
paciente camina sobre una correa
sin fin llevando en su pecho tres
electrodes, mientras un m6dico y
una enfermera siguen detenida-
mente los registros del funciona-
miento del coraz6n. Estos detienen
el funcionamiento del mecanismo
al producirse un registro normal
del coraz6n o la presi6n sanguine.
Al ofrecer un registro del funcio-
namiento del coraz6n, el monitor
automAticamente registra la pre-
si6n sanguinea, ya que toma las
pulsaciones del electrocardi6grafo
y detecta el pulso. Los registros
graficos en la cinta del monitor se
obtienen cada minute y las lectu-
ras de la presi6n sanguine cada
3 minutes durante el ejercicio.
Generalmente, la prueba se rea-
liza en la'correa sin fin a cuatro
velocidadaes de 3 minutes. cada
una. El paciente comienza cami-
nando a 1.7 millas por hora, lue-
go a 2.5 millas por hora, a 3.4
mph y finalmente a 4.2 mph,
aumentando la velocidad en forma
gradual. Permanece en la correa
durante las cuatro etapas.
Antes de someterse a la prueba
de la correa sin fin, el paciente es
examinado en posici6n de descanso
con el electrocardi6grafo, y nueva-
mente es sometido al mismo exa-
men al concluir la prueba de tole-
rancia. El m6dico y la enfermera
que administran la prueba perma-
necen constantemente con el pa-
ciente habl/ndole, imprimiindole
AdemAs de diagnosticar y eva-
luar enfermedades cardiacas, el
sistema es empleado para evaluar
la influencia de ejercicios que de-
mandan esfuerzos del coraz6n y
para establecer la reacci6n a pro-
gramas de ejercicios para ayudar
a la salud cardiovascular y para
la rehabilitaci6n de cardiacos.
Por recomendaci6n medica, apro-
ximadamente 20 pacientes en pro-
medio mensual estin sometiendose
a la prueba. Esta se program los
