    Any time I have a sore or scratchy throat that makes me cough, I fry up a piece of bacon, roll it up in a ball and put it in the side of my cheek and suck on it. The constant salt makes my throat feel better and it usually eases the coughing considerably.

    To make a warm compress-for back aches, iv infiltrates, etc- we use the bag baths warmed up. no order needed.

    To make a cold compress take your washcloth, wet it and wring it out then spin it around real fast like a helicopter. I will be real cold.

    For the patient that is trying to get up phlegm- try taking a swig or 2 of coke, pepsi or ginger ale- no ice, better room temp.
