  Report of the Division of Tuberculosis Control, 1953
Dr. G. F. Kincade, Director
INTRODUCTION g
This is the Eighteenth Report of the Division of Tuberculosis Control, and it covers
the calendar year January 1st to December 31st, 1953. W Spttol
The Report is divided into six major sections of statistical tables showing the general
summaries of the clinics of the Division, institutional admission and discharge summaries, tuberculin testing and B.C.G. summaries, tables on known cases and new cases
of tuberculosis, and tuberculosis mortality.
It is to be noted that several new tables have been added. These include total
admissions by institutions and diagnosis, review admissions by institutions and diagnosis,
a table showing condition on discharge by sex and length of first admission, B.C.G.
vaccination results, and a table showing new notifications by age-group and sex over
a fifteen-year period. it iff    m - i^
Certain amendments have been made to existing tables with a view to improving
their usefulness. Brief narrative comments have been made as a guide to the more important features of these statistics, and graphs have been included with some of the tables
to assist the reader in following time trends.
In the following report an attempt will be made to analyse trends in the basic elements of tuberculosis-control and to emphasize those important changes which influence
planning and indicate the lines of future development. There can be no doubt that with
the important changes in treatment and case-finding that have occurred in recent years,
the problem of tuberculosis-control has changed dramatically. We have now reached
a critical stage in our development and must carefully analyse our position in an attempt
to forecast the future.
Experience in recent years, since the advent of antimicrobials and recent developments in chest surgery, has shown that tuberculosis can now be cured. Hence our whole
concept in the approach to treatment has changed in that we now attempt to achieve
a cure, whereas formerly we had to be satisfied to bring the disease under control with
stabilization of the lesion, and through careful control of the patient to hope that the
disease would remain arrested. Our present objective is the eradication of the lesion
from the body. This has had many and varied effects on the programme of hospitalization, although the future bed utilization and needs are not too clearly indicated as the
result of our changing treatment practices. A       i i fStt
Even though our practices have undoubtedly changed in the treatment of various
types and stages of disease, the average length of treatment of Jhe cases admitted to
institutions over the past ten years has not varied greatly.   X        $$&'■■■ i
The largest group of patients, according to length of stay, is the one treated four to
eight months, representing 246 patients out of 1,026 diseharges.jin 1953. Another 160
cases were treated one to four months, and 166 cases treated less than one month. All
told, 752 cases, or 73 per cent of the total, were treated under one year.
Actually it is surprising that the average length of treatment has not increased considerably. The death rates will show that many people with advanced disease are no
longer dying of tuberculosis. These people are recovering through antimicrobials, but
dually after prolonged hospitalization. Surgery has also increased markedly, in line
with the present conception of removing dangerous foci which might later reactivate.
This policy applies not only to the new cases who have an incomplete result from medical
13
 D 14 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND WELFARE
treatment and are left with a dangerous focus, which must be removed, but also to many
other cases, of which there is a considerable backlog, who had their treatment in the
pre-streptomycin era and pre-resection era and are now being readmitted for resectional
surgery. These major chest surgical cases necessitate long periods of institutionalization
In view of the obvious increase in hospitalization of the above two groups, it must
be indicated that medical cures through antibiotics in the less-advanced cases must have
been achieved in shorter periods of time. Moreover, those cases in which the definitive
treatment is obviously surgical are more quickly brought into condition to undertake this
surgery. One would therefore expect with fewer far-advanced cases being discovered
and the backlog of surgical cases being gradually overcome that the periods of hospitalization should soon see a definite reduction.
BED SITUATION
During recent months an unusual situation has been experienced in the Division of
Tuberculosis Control in that there have been empty beds, and all cases, except for elective
surgical cases, could be admitted immediately. At the present time there are twenty-one
empty beds and twenty-eight patients on the waiting-list. The waiting-list is composed
of surgical cases or of those who will not go to institutions where beds are available.
This enviable situation has been achieved mostly by the addition of new beds in the past
year. At the present time there are approximately 925 beds within the units of the
Division, as compared with 772 before the opening of Pearson Hospital. The number
of applications this year was 962, as compared with 966 in 1952, which would indicate
that the reduction of the waiting-list is due to increased facilities and not to any reduction
of persons needing treatment.
Due to the nursing shortage there are forty beds in that complement at Tranquille
which are not occupied. However, in view of the fact that there are fifteen empty beds
at Tranquille in the limited complement now in use, the advisability of endeavouring
to operate these extra forty beds under existing conditions is questioned.
Notwithstanding the present favourable position, other factors which could affect the
bed situation must be taken into account. It is well known that there are numerous
cases needing treatment who refuse hospitalization. If these were forced into institutions,
with effective legislation, a great many more beds would be needed. Similarly, if Provincial responsibility for chronic care is extended to non-pulmonary tuberculosis, present
facilities could not meet these needs.
A census of sanatorium patients taken on September 30th of this year indicates an
increasing trend of occupancy of beds by male patients over 50 years of age. Out of
a total occupancy of 843 beds, 562 were males, of whom 271 or 48.2 per cent were over
50 years of age. Out of 281 female patients, only 25 or 8.9 per cent were over 50 years
of age. This has increased from 8.6 per cent a year ago. The ratio of male to female
bed patients is at present exactly two to one, and in view of the fact that the distribution
of males and females in the total population is almost equal, these figures would indicate
that tuberculosis in the male is a much greater problem than tuberculosis in the female.
Also the male over 50 years of age is one of our greatest institutional-care problems,
and this appears to be definitely increasing rather than decreasing.
MORTALITY
The trends in mortality from tuberculosis are very well known and most striking.
In 1946 there was a death rate in British Columbia of 57.4, with 576 deaths per annum.
This year is chosen because it was about the beginning of the streptomycin era. The
rate has declined steadily each year, until the present rate is less than one-quarter of that
in 1946. In spite of an increasing population, only 214 deaths were recorded in 1952,
giving a rate of 17.9.   The preliminary figures for 1953 show 141 deaths, giving a rate
 TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL REPORT, 1953 D 15
of 11.5.   Undoubtedly, most will agree that this dramatic decline in deaths has come
about chiefly as a result of the antimicrobials.
In the other-than-Indian group the proportion of deaths in age-groups 50 and over
is very striking. The preliminary figures for 1953 indicate that only three occurred in
persons under 20 years of age, all in the 1-4 age-group. Eighty-one deaths occurred
in persons 50 and over, representing 68.1 per cent of all deaths from tuberculosis. The
ratio of deaths in males to females in this group was 6.4 to 1.

difference in the case-finding rate between those done in hospitals and those done in other
survey clinics. Almost the same number of new cases of tuberculosis were found as in

During 1953, 709 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis were diagnosed, as compared
with 664 in 1952. Among these, 339 or 55.3 per cent had minimal tuberculosis and 199
or 28.2 per cent were moderately advanced. This is an increase in the moderately
advanced cases from 19.7 per cent in 1952. y
In 1952, 45.9 per cent of the cases diagnosed were active. In 1953, 47.5 per cent
of the new cases were classified as active and 30 per cent were inactive and arrested

 TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL REPORT, 1953
D 31
The over-all number of X-rays taken in the Province for chest X-ray purposes has
increased by over 50,000 in comparison with the previous year. Part of the increase was
brought about by the continuous operation of the mobile unit in outlying areas, whereas
in 1952 it was only in operation for a few months.

A very marked decrease in the number of initial pneumothoraces was recorded with
a drop from 119 in 1952 to 39 in 1953. ' l*
There has been a considerable increase in the number of resections done, particularly segmental and wedge operations. In 1952 there were 13 segmental and 23 wedge
resections, while in 1953 there were 56 segmental and 42 wedge resections. There has
been a corresponding decrease in the number of thoracoplasties from 170 in 1952 to 100
in 1953, including post resection thoracoplasties.

INSTITUTIONS—DISCHARGES
There were 1,026 discharges in 1953, as compared with 890 in 1952, and it is
interesting to note that only 54 or 5.3 per cent of the discharges were at death. There is
an increasing number of arrested cases being discharged, the number being 274 or 26.7
per cent of the total.   This compares with 18 per cent discharged as arrested in 1949.

was an actual decrease from 1,100 to 1,094 and in the white group there was a decrease
from 999 to 926. The increase in notifications occurred chiefly amongst the Indians from
282 to 407 and amongst the Chinese from 85 to 140 new cases notified.

These figures show a definitely decreasing incidence of tuberculosis in all age-groups.
In those groups up to 14 years of age the incidence has never been high as compared to
the other groups and it has shown a definite downward trend. In all those groups 15
years of age and older there has been a marked downward trend in the incidence of
tuberculosis, but it is noted that in all groups over 40 years of age, although markedly
decreasing, the incidence amongst the males is several times as great as amongst the
females. In the total picture, amongst males the incidence reached its peak at 235.2 per
100,000 in 1946 and for females at 196.7 per 100,000 in the same year. These have now
been reduced to 103.4 per 100,000 and 78.3 per 100,000 in 1953—a reduction of over
50 per cent.
