CONSTITUTIONAL TREATMENT OF ACUTE CATARRH OF THE UPPER AIR PASSAGES.

CONSTITUTIONAL TREATMENT OF ACUTE CATARRH OF THE UPPER AIR PASSAGES.

Abstract

Acute catarrh or cold of the "upper air passages" might truly be called a "freshet" or "overflow" of the watery and other constituents of the blood, into the mucous and submucous connective tissue. To successfully treat this disease, there are three indications, viz.: first, to arrest it in the first stage, or prevent this overflow and injury to the noimal tissue; second, should the disease have passed into the second stage, drain out and deplete the engorged and inflamed tissue and arrest inflammation; third, repair the damage to the affected tissue by the disease having passed into the third stage, and not allow it to end in chronic catarrh, but resolution. Constitutional Treatment.—Bromide of potassium diminishes reflex irritability and cutaneous sensibility, and depresses the activity of the spinal cord and the medulla, and has its appropriate place in the first and second stages of acute catarrh. The iodide of potash
