If possible, prevent the chill which almost always precedes the fever, by keeping the patient in bed until an hour or two after the usual time for chilling is past, placing warm jugs or bricks at his feet, so as to beep him warm, but taking care not to induce perspiration if it can be avoided. When the patient suffers with no well-defined chill, but has wandering and irregular sensations of chilliness, this plan cannot be adopted; but the patient should remain quiet in bed during the early part of the day, and if the fever runs very high, it will be better for him to remain quiet in bed for several days in succession, provided, of course, that he can have other proper treatment at the same time. By this means the patients vitality and strength will be economized; but he must not be confined in bed for a long period, as he needs the advantages of out-of-door air and exercise. As soon as the fever is materially lessened, let him resume his daily walks and rides in the open air. Copious water drinking, at least to the amount of three to six glasses of water a day, is Another means by which the fever may be successfully lowered. The employment of sponge baths at the time when the fever is highest, is a means of great comfort to the patient. Either pure water or water containing one-third its measure of alcohol may be employed in sponging the patient. Inunction on the dry, parched skin, after moistening it by a wet-hand rub, is another measure not to be forgotten. When the patient is strong and does not suffer with night sweats, a wet compress worn about the chest often affords very great relief from the parching fever.
