firing

an oldfashioned technique for applying long-term counterirritation to a part, usually a lower limb, in an attempt to encourage healing of a damaged ligament or tendon. A red hot iron is applied to an area of anesthetized skin and a pattern of holes of lines drawn over the area. The firing could be deep, point firing, or superficial, line firing. Enforced rest results because of the soreness of the part, but the benefits of this method of treatment are questioned.

firing irons
specially designed irons, including those for pin and line firing, to be used on a horse's limbs.

Patient discussion about firing

Q. Does anyone have an issue with fire log? Every time my neighbors use fire log, I suffer. What can I do? I moved to the West Coast, and realized people burn a lot of fire logs here. I seem to have developed an allergy to it. Every winter, I suffer when neighbors use fire logs. I can not go around the whole neighborhood asking them not to use it. I am wondering if there's any patient advocacy to prohibit the usage of fire logs? I am sure there must be a lot of asthma patients who have the same problem with mine? If we regulate smoking, why can't we regulate fire logs?

A. I found some info like this.

Q. How do you tell the difference between chemical burns, and burns from fire? Please don't spare on gross words i would like to know everything there is to burns.
