Evaporating Wet Sheet


from Dr JH Kellogg's Hydriatic Techniques...


  • Like an uncovered Wet Sheet Pack
  • Evaporation may be encouraged further, to tolerance, by
    • Fanning by hand or electric
    • Keeping sheet wet
    • Moderate friction applied over sheet

Hot in:


  • Wring well from water 55-60°C or as hot as the patient can bear
  • Fan sheet and apply gentle friction
  • Repeat in 2 min or when feeling of chill

Cold rarely used except where skin very congested in Production Fever

  • vigorous rubbing to maintain circulation
