Forbid all kinds of foods and drinks of a stimulating character, especially in that form of active congestion seen in narrow-chested young persons, and which Is very likely to result in consumption. Tea, coffee and hot drinks of all kinds, as well as all kinds of alcoholic drinks, stimulating condiments, flesh diet, and indeed, everything of an exciting nature must be strictly avoided. The diet should consist chiefly of fruits and grains. Milk may be used freely in place of meat and eggs. The "grape cure" practiced at Meran on Lake Geneva in Switzerland, is wonderfully successful. The patient lives on grapes, eating several pounds a day. The milk and whey cure are also practiced successfully in these cases. In the cases of violent congestion usually termed pulmonary apoplexy, the usual remedy is bleeding. We have treated a number of cases of this disease without this measure, however, and with such excellent results as warrant the assertion that it is not required. In one case in which the patient expected to die any moment, and was expectorating large quantities of bloody, frothy sputum, the heart beating very violently, almost instantaneous relief was obtained by the use of faradization, the positive pole being applied at the base of the brain and the negative over the lungs. The same patient was relieved in a similar manner in several subsequent attacks. In other cases, the warm full bath has been equally effective, relieving the lungs by attracting the blood to the surface. To prevent congestion arising from long illness with confinement in bed, change the position of the patient often, and thus prevent settling of the blood in dependent parts of the lungs. In congestion arising from pneumonia or other disease of the opposite lung, relief will be obtained only by cure of the primary disease. Fortunately, the same remedied that relieve the one, also affect favorably the other. Bleeding, especially in such cases as these, is an almost fatal mistake, since it will only temporarily relieve the urgent symptoms, and will certainly aggravate the main disease. The same remark applies with still greater force to congestion arising from disease of the heart. In these cases, great care should be taken to warm the extremities and in every possible way promote the circulation in the surface. Fomentations to the chest, applied as hot as can be borne for a short time, and ice-compresses between the shoulders, is an excellent measure which almost always gives relief. If amelioration of the symptoms is not otherwise obtained, we may relieve the lungs by the use of Junod's boot; or, in the absence of this, by tying a ligature around one or both limbs near the body with sufficient tightness to obstruct the venous circulation and cause an accumulation of blood in the limbs. This measure is really equivalent to the abstraction of a considerable quantity of blood, without the dangers of the latter measure. The ligatures should not be kept in place so long as to injure the ligated parts, and should be gradually loosened as soon as the lungs are relieved.
