Lungs Inflammation Of The

Source: Papers On Health

This is a common trouble in our climate,
and, fortunately, one not difficult to cure if taken in time and
properly treated. It is usually the result of a chill, and is
accompanied with pain and inability to breathe properly, distressing
fever, and often delirium. To begin with, all its evils arise from the
relaxing of the vessels of the lungs, so that these swell, and the
excess of blood causes inflammatory action to supervene. To guard
against it, then, those influences must be avoided which reduce
vitality; where they cannot be avoided, all must be done to counteract
them. Mere exposure to cold or wet, unless accompanied by exhaustion
from hunger, or grief, or other influence of the kind, rarely causes
this trouble.

Where the trouble has set in, the treatment is the same as recommended
above in Lungs, Bleeding from. If the patient be a very strong person,
and the fever very great, the fomentation to the feet may be dispensed
with; but if any uncomfortable coldness is felt, or the patient not
above average strength, it should always be applied. No one who has not
seen it can imagine the magical effect such treatment has. It is
simple, but its efficiency has been demonstrated in a very large number
of cases of cure.
