Excerpt from Maryland Medical Journal, Vol. 32: A Weekly Journal of Medicine and Surgery; November, 1894-April, 1895
The length of time for which cold is to be used must in most cases be decided by the amount of fever which is present. If this falls to or near the normal point and shows a tendency to remain there then the ice may be gradually removed. It is best, however, not to be in too much haste in withdrawing the cold, for frequently before this is off very long the temperature suddenly ﬂies up again. If this takes place, and the temperature remains high after the ice is reapplied for some time, it is a possible indication that the inﬂammation has invaded a new field, and is not active in the old one. This has happened several times in my experience.
