Abstract

The cold wet sheet pack is a treatment that is seldom discussed anymore. The authors present results of a national survey which demonstrated that this treatment is rarely used in modern American psychiatry. They retrospectively review its recent use for 46 hospitalized psychiatric patients and conclude that the treatment is safe and has interesting and useful effects that go beyond the concept of simple restraint. Further study of treatment with cold wet sheet packs is recommended before it disappears altogether.
