Towels Cold Wet






Source: Papers On Health

A towel of the ordinary kind, and full size, is
soaked in a basin of cold water and carefully wrung out until it is
merely damp. Prejudice against this treatment is often aroused by
putting on the cloths wet, and in a slack, blundering way, so as to
make the patient most uncomfortable. It is then folded and applied to
the skin, as directed. While applying the first, a second towel may be
in the water. It is then wrung out and applied, while the first is
placed to soak afresh. In prolonged cooling, care must be taken that
the water in the basin does not get too warm. It should be frequently
changed. The nurse should gently press the towels on the part,
frequently changing the position of her hands. They should not merely
be laid on, but gently pressed, unless this causes pain. The towels
will need to be changed when hot, and will take from two to five
minutes to lose their cooling effect, according to circumstances. Where
cold increases the patient's distress, it is almost always safe to
substitute heat. See Cooling in Heating; Fomentation.
