‘Minor’ Heart Attacks Can Still be Deadly DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband, 46, died suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack. An autopsy showed that he died from what the doctor said was a minor heart attack. How does a minor heart attack kill? It was major for him and me. - C.C. ANSWER: The pathologist who performed the autopsy must have found that only a small section of heart was involved, and only a small heart artery was obstructed. Minor heart attacks can lead to major complications, including death. They can generate abnormal heartbeats, so abnormal that the heart’s pumping action stops. You have my deepest sympathy. The booklet on heart attacks explains why they happen and how they’re prevented. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 102W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I want to get rid of a lot of expired medicines. I have heard that flushing them down the toilet or putting them in the garbage will make them end up in our drinking water. What is the proper solution? -- M.S. ANSWER: Different government agencies have different recommendations for medicine disposal. Congress is trying to resolve those differences. First, check with your drugstore to see if it has a program to dispose of medicines; many do. Also check with your town, county or state to see if it has “take-back” programs. Many do. If you can’t find a facility that accepts old medicines, mix them with coffee grounds, sawdust, kitty litter or similar materials (making them less appealing for children or pets to eat), seal them in a plastic bag and put them in your trash. A few drugs ought to be flushed down the toilet or the sink. These drugs are mostly powerful painkillers, like morphine, fentanyl, oxycodone and Demerol. They pose a danger to children, pets and even adults if accidentally ingested. This advice comes from the Food and Drug Administration. You can find the complete list at www.fda.gov. ••• Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. © 2012 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Vet Centers Going Mobile

Have you checked out the Vet Center near you? These Department of Veterans Affairs Centers provide dozens of health services, perhaps more than you’d expect. The Vet Centers were started in 1979 as a response to the need to help Vietnam-era veterans adjust to civilian life. Since then the eligibility for assistance has been expanded to include other eras of hostility. Since 2003, the services include bereavement help for spouses, parents and siblings of veterans who died on active duty, as well as substance-abuse assessment and referral, job assessment and referral, brain injury screening, benefits help and more. The Centers, 207 of them across the country, had more than a million visits last year. In addition to the Centers themselves, the VA has had 50 mobile vans going to areas that don’t

have easy access to the regional medical centers. These fully outfitted recreational vehicles, with spaces divided into private rooms, head out to rural areas for on-the-spot counseling, information and referral for military sexual trauma, marriage and family counseling, bereavement counseling and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In the event of a natural disaster, these vans also can serve as support centers. They have phone lines, computers, WiFi and DVD, satellite dish, fridge, first aid, a defibrillator and more. And now there are an additional 20 vans out on the road to serve rural areas. To read the list of locations for the new vans, go to the VA’s website and put “new mobile vet centers” in the search box. To find the Vet Center nearest you, go online to www.va.gov and put “find Vet Center” in the search box, or call 800-827-1000. If you go to a Stand Down this year, you’ll likely see those vans in place. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
