The Hose Bath. THROUGH the modem improvements in India rubber, gutta-percha, leather, etc., it is easy, whenever there is a small fall or head of water, to arrange what is called a hose bath. It is in principle a douche, with the additional advantage that it can be made to act upon any part of the body, and from whatever direction we choose. Rightly applied, the hose bath is a valuable remedy. (Fig. 190.)
