As in cholera morbus, keep the patient on his back, still as can be. Use
A D current, full medium strength.
In the early stage, or during the "rice-water" discharges, and down to
the time of collapse, treat the abdomen and thorax with P. P., having N.
P., long cord, on back of neck--not too near the head. After treating
so a few moments--say four to six minutes--remove P. P. to the back, and
pass it along close upon each side of the spinous processes from the
lower lumbar up to about the middle of the dorsal vertebrae. Continue
this about three or four minutes.
If cramping accompany the vomiting and purging, carry the P. P. a part
of the time to the muscles in spasm, leaving N. P. still at the back of
neck, with long cord.
Repeat the above processes as often as once an hour until symptoms
improve. Then reduce their frequency as the case will admit of.
In the state of collapse, place P. P., long cord, at the coccyx, and
manipulate with N. P. over the entire trunk and arms; bestowing a larger
share of treatment along up the spine than elsewhere. Then remove P.
P., long cord, to feet, and work with N. P. all over the lower limbs
and hips. Treat in this stage of the disease some six or eight minutes
at a time, and repeat it as the case seems to demand--once in thirty
minutes to once in two, four or six hours, until improvement or death
shall ensue. (See page 81.)
