New System Gives 'Check-Up'
to Persons With Pacemakers

REHOVOT — A new in-
strument developed by a
doctor at the Weizmann In-
stitute of Science should be
extremely helpful to the
world's 200,000 patients
whose lives depend on the
accurate functioning of i m-
planted pacemakers.
According to the Istitute's
"Interface" magazine, a
"smaller-than-a-breadbox"
automatic Pacemaker
Function Analyzer (PFA)
which facilitates frequent,
reliable and uncomplicated
check-ups has been de-
veloped by Dr. Henryk Fis-
chler of the Institute's
Biological Ultrastructure
Department, together with
Dr. Salomon Behar in col-
laboration with Prof. Henry
N. Neufeld, both of Tel Aviv
University's Medical School
and Chaim Sheba Medical
Center.
The instrument has al-
ready been tested suc-
cessfully on hundreds of
patients both during the
critical post operative
period and in subsequent
follow-ups.
A variety of essential
pacemaker functions is
automatically evaluated
at the same time as the
PFA scans electrocar-
diograms for pacemaker
performances — glowing
green if all is in order, red
if anything is wrong.

Rabbi Explains
"L'Chayim" Toast

By RABBI
SAMUEL J. FOX •

(Copyright 1979, JTA Inc.)

A greeting is offered - (i.e.
L'Chayim) when drinking
wine or other intoxicating
beverages.
Wine was used to console
mourners and to quiet down
convicts before capital
punishment was carried out
on them. It thus was associ-
ated with death. Therefore,
when the drink is consumed
or offered to others, the ex-
pression L'Chayim is pro-
nounced to assure people
that this drink is not the one
before or after death but the
one for life.
It has also been explained
by some that wine or into-
xicating liquors are a
stimulus to expressing
words which may be unde-
sirable and which the mys-
tic sources claim may shor-
ten one's life. Thus, upon
drinking such beverages,
one issues the expression
``L'Chayim" to forewarn
himself to guard his tongue
in order to preserve his life.

The new instrument also check-ups will obviously be-
alerts doctors to possible come strained. Our device
failure of the generator's will help to provide a practi-
electronic circuitry, the in- cal solution to this problem.
Also, many patients
correct positioning or mal-
functioning of the elec- encounter psychological
trodes that deliver the pac- - problems as a result of their
ing stimuli to the heart and critical dependence on an
(in demand pacemakers) it electrical device; anxiety
even senses cardiac poten- often drives them to make
tial and activates the unnecessary demands on
their doctors. "We believe
