Episode Description
Radiology, blood pressure, and hearing will be explored on the first program in the current 'World of Medicine' educational television series which will debut on (channel, date, time). The careful technique employed by a radiologist as he examines patients with x-ray and fluoroscope will be demonstrated, along with an analysis of an x-ray by the radiologist and a practicing physician. "The miracle of hearing is graphically presented as the viewer sees the inside of a human ear as it functions in hearing. Also included in this first program is an animated film which describes the fenestration operation which opens a door into the inner ear through surgery. "'World of Medicine,' the first production of the recently-formed Organization of National Support of Educational Television (ONSET), was made possible by a public service grant from Schering Corporation, Bloomfield, N.J. pharmaceutical manufacturer. "Other programs in the 'World of Medicine' educational television series will be seen on (channel, date, time)."-- episode description from accompanying material. The program opens with host Ken Lording welcoming the audience to the program. The first segment of the program focuses on radiology, introducing and explaining the X-ray. X-rays pass through objects and are absorbed by denser structures, giving a differential absorption which can be shown on an x-ray film. X-rays are used to give accurate diagnoses and identify treatments. The program then shows how a consultation with a radiologist usually plays out and how radiologists reach diagnoses, and then it shows the process of getting an x-ray film made and how an examination of the upper intestinal tract is performed. The subject of the next segment is testing blood pressure. The program features a doctor taking a patient's blood pressure, explaining how blood pressure is measured, and explaining what blood pressure is, as well as the difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The final segment of the episode focuses on hearing. A doctor explains the history of treating ear inflictions, the structure of the ear, how the ear functions, how to determine hearing loss and test hearing, and the causes and solutions to different types of hearing loss. A film demonstrates the fenestra operation.
Series Description
"'WORLD OF MEDICINE is a series of thirteen half hour kinescope programs comprising twenty-eight medical subjects designed to increase public understanding of medicine. Some fifty-five medical authorities and technicians participated. Production wise, 'WORLD OF MEDICINE' is perhaps the most ambitious series yet produced at an educational television station. The series is now being exhibited over the nation's educational television stations."-- 1957 Peabody Awards entry form.
