CHILE QUAKE-PKG


Fires raged in northern Chile overnight, triggered by the intense shaking of a powerful eight-point-two earthquake striking in the Pacific Ocean.

The epicenter was 76 miles off the coast of a mining town in northern Chile, near the border with Peru.

The quake was followed by tsunami warnings up and down the Pacific coast - even as far away as Hawaii.

Hundreds of thousands were evacuated along the Chilean coast, including homes for the elderly- leading to a series of traffic jams from fleeing residents.

"This earthquake occurred in an area of plate convergence, where one plate subducts underneath the other. It's a similar kind of earthquake to what we've seen in Japan and Sumatra in the last few years."

Chile's long, narrow borders are situated along the "Ring of Fire," the area encircling most of the Pacific Ocean that is home to the overwhelming majority of the world's seismic and volcanic activity.

Just four years ago, Chile suffered a magnitude 8.8 quake that killed over five-hundred residents.

It is also the victim of the largest earthquake in recorded history- a 9.5 quake in 1960 that killed several thousand.

REPORTER CLOSE:

POWER OUTAGES AND LANDSLIDES BLOCKING ROADS WERE ALSO REPORTED AND SOME 300 FEMALE PRISONERS ESCAPED FROM A PENITENTIARY DURING THE QUAKE.

THE BIG QUESTION NOW: IS THIS IT? OR WILL ANOTHER EARTHQUAKE FOLLOW SOON, AS HAS HAPPENED THERE IN THE PAST?

JOINT REPLACEMENT SURGERY IS ALREADY A COMMON OPERATION, AND IN THE COMING YEARS CASES ARE EXPECTED TO SKYROCKET.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS AMY OSHIER EXPLAINS WHY IT'S NO LONGER FOR PEOPLE IN THEIR GOLDEN YEARS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


MAYBE IT'S OUR DESIRE TO STAY YOUNG OR THE DISTASTE OF FEELING OLD. EITHER WAY- THE DEMOGRAPHICS OF JOINT REPLACEMENT IS GOING DOWN.

DR. ED HUMBERT/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

2:59 I think the baby boomers want to stay very, very active. So they're kind of pushing the age down.

AND THE TIME IS RIGHT FOR YOUNGER JOINT PATIENTS. UP TO NOW, PEOPLE HAD TO WEIGH THEIR DISCOMFORT AGAINST HOW LONG THE JOINT MIGHT LAST BEFORE ANOTHER SURGERY WAS NEEDED.

DR. ED HUMBERT/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

3:11 Thirty years ago they said 'well this may only last ten years' so people tried to push it to their very, very last chance to do it.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

So why the change of heart? The driving force behind worn out joints is still the same: arthritis. Fueled by injury, genetics or overuse- the main difference is the parts. Technology has evolved to make artificial joints last longer.

DR. ED HUMBERT/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

3:47 We know the parts will last a little longer, so we're more likely to recommend it. 3:22 Patients are saying well if this can last me 30 years when I'm 50 years old at least it's going to get me until I'm 80 or 85.

GROWING OLD WITHOUT WEARING OUT- IS KEEPING PATIENTS YOUNG AT HEART.

DR. ED HUMBERT/ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

RUNS:

3:34 And they have the ability to do fun exercise and play with kids and play golf and do sports.

THE TAKEAWAY ON JOINT REPLACEMENT- IS LOWER AGE AND HIGHER EXPECTATION. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
