Dr. Peter Safar, 79, a pioneer in emergency medicine who was regarded as the father of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, died of cancer Sunday at his home in suburban Pittsburgh. Dr. Safar was credited with establishing the country's first physician-staffed, multidisciplinary intensive care unit. He also developed the "ABCs of CPR," a lifesaving technique taught to everyone from surgeons to Boy Scouts. He established the first modern intensive care unit in 1958 at the old Baltimore City Hospitals.

Lydia Weiss of Ruxton was having trouble breathing and told her husband, Steve, that she was having a serious asthma attack. "This is not a test, this is reality," she said. Weiss, 50, told her husband to drive her to Greater Baltimore Medical Center. Upon arriving, she fell unconscious and was quickly assisted by paramedics who had just pulled into the hospital parking lot. The crews' administration of CPR that July day last year, combined with Dr. Jeff Sternlicht's treatment in the emergency room, saved Weiss' life.

Hoping to improve the chances of saving lives of critically injured children, Carroll County paramedics are using a state grant to buy kid-sized resuscitation equipment and to train to better treat the youngest of patients. Ambulances at each of the 14 volunteer fire companies serving the county will carry a Broselow bag, a resuscitation kit that includes equipment in varying sizes to children. Jeff M. Fleming, a paramedic for Gamber and Community Fire Company, said the bag would cut the time it takes to sort through equipment to fit children, who he said account for about 10 percent of Carroll County's emergency calls.

At some point, Colin Firth took over for Hugh Grant as America's official Englishman. Stiffly charming and awkwardly mannered, Firth conveys everything that Americans love, hate, love to hate and hate to love about the British. He's even become something of a middle-class heartthrob, to boot. It's all on display in When Did You Last See Your Father?, an adaptation of the novel by Blake Morrison, directed by Anand Tucker (Shopgirl). Firth plays an award-winning poet who is forced to confront long-simmering resentments toward his father (Jim Broadbent)

By the early 1950s, with Baltimore's aging port facilities worn down from heavy use during World War II and with the neglect of the all-powerful railroads, it was clear that something had to be done. Maryland Gov. Theodore Roosevelt McKeldin, who had been critical of the lack of modern port development, was joined in this sentiment by Baltimore Mayor Thomas J. D'Alesandro Jr. At the time, the port was largely a bulk handler of coal, grain and ore, and it was in danger of losing its competitive edge.

John Leguizamo hardly seems the type of actor to be scrubbing in as one of the doctors on ER, NBC's long-running medical drama. The 41-year-old native of Colombia is best known for his edgy one-man shows (Freak, Sexaholix), his work in independent films (from Spike Lee's Summer of Sam to the new Cronicas) and quirky parts in larger movies (Toulouse-Lautrec in Moulin Rouge!). Over the years, he has limited his television appearances to late-night talk shows and the occasional HBO movie.
