Definitions of REFRIGERANTS
Sort: Oldest first
Medicines which depress the morbid temperature of the body. The chief reputed refrigerants are the Potassae Nitras, the Sodae Boras, but chiefly the abstraction of calorie by ice and ice-drinks, cold water, cold lemonades, soda-water, and effervescing draughts internally; and externally, cool air, cold water, evaporating lotions, and frigorific mixtures.
