The exhausting sweats from which many patient's suffer, particularly at night, or at any time when asleep, should bo checked as speedily as possible. The best means of accomplishing this are the use of the salt sponge bath at night; sponging the body with a mixture of alcohol and water in proportion to one part of the former to two of the later; and sponging with hot water at bedtime. The last remedy we have employed very frequently of late, and are much pleased with the results afforded by it in the prevention of these exhausting sweats. It is important that patients suffering in this way should know that the sweats are greatly aggravated by opium in any form, and hence are increased by cough mixtures of any sort which contain this drug.
