Etymology: AS, colian, cool
reducing body temperature by the application of a hypothermia blanket, cold moist dressings, ice packs, or an alcohol bath. Subnormal body temperature may be induced to reduce metabolic function before some kinds of surgery. Very high fevers of any origin may be treated in part by reduction of the fever with cooling techniques. See also alcohol bath, hypothermia, hypothermia blanket.
