As this Navy patient's temperature rises to between 105 and 106.5 degrees, the nurses wipes the perspiration from his reddening face, while a fan cools his head. This treatment is used for venereal and certain other diseases. A hospital corpsman takes measures to replace the salt and water lost by perspiration during the treatment.
