disease process depends largely upon the retardation of the flow of the blcod to that part.
The phagocytes may gather, but unless they receive the full amount of the normal flow with its opsonins, resisting power is lost and suppuration takes place. We must either increase ihe opsonic index of the blood so that the small amount flowing through the infected part may be of normal opsonic value, or, what is simpler and as effective, dilate the blood-vessels and let the blood, with nature's own or ethod of combating disease, circulate through the area desired.
Heat dilates the blood vessels, but to be effective it must extend to the periphery of the infected area, when it will not cause suppuration by increasing the bacteria. An antiseptic poultice is the best method of conveying heat. There is but one method of poulticing which commends itself to thinking physicians, and that is with the antiseptic, hygroscopic, plastic dressing
