to alcohol, a little whisky administered several times a day may act
only for good, both as a food and as a peripheral dilator. But it

a large dose will be followed by more cardiac depression.
Nitroglycerin may act as well as whisky in the kind of cases
mentioned. Caffein stimulation in any form is generally inadvisable
