This should always be managed so as to soothe
and not excite the little patients. They are very sensitive to heat and
cold. When these are applied the child often cries, so that the
"treatment" is condemned and given up. What should be condemned is the
nurse's want of skill. In every case the cold or hot application should
be so managed as to be agreeable. Very gentle heat at first may be
succeeded by stronger heat without shock. So mildly cool applications
may be followed by colder ones in the same way. There is no sense or
