Abstract

BACKGROUND: This is extremely useful and applicable hydriatic procedure, in which the patient is enveloped with cold wet sheet and then the sheet is covered with dry blanket wrappings to regulate the temperature and to control evaporation. Full wet sheet pack is a hydrotherapic procedure practiced in Naturopathy. In this the volunteers are made to lie down and safely wrapped in Full wet sheet pack to access the physiological effect produced by it in the same atmospheric condition. The present study was conducted to evaluate whether the Full Wet Sheet Pack has any physiological effect on Pulse Rate, Body Temperature, Respiratory Rate and Peak Flow Rate in healthy male individuals. AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of this study is to assess the effect the Full wet sheet pack on pulse rate body temperature, respiratory rate and peak flow rate in healthy male individuals. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of full wet sheet pack on Pulse rate, Body temperature, Respiratory rate, Peak flow rate. RESULT: The experiment result showed a significant improvement in Pulse Rate, Respiratory Rate, Peak Flow Rate (p < 0.05), whereas no significant improvement in the body temperature (p > 0.05). CONCLUSION: The desired result showed by the pre and post treatment effect of Full Wet Sheet Pack is Sedative. As indicated by significant improvement in Pulse Rate, Respiratory Rate and Peak Flow Rate, the treatment measure can be effectively employed to attain desired Cooling effect by continuing treatment for duration of 8 – 12 min and Neutral effect by prolonging the treatment for 30 min and Heating effect for a duration of 45 min and Sweating effect by prolonging for 45 min and above maximum for a duration of 1½ hours. So that Full Wet Sheet Pack can be an effective mode of Hydrotherapeutic treatment in Naturopathy which can be indicated to cure various conditions like fever (Cooling or Antipyretic stage), Insomnia (Neutral stage), Chronic Malarial Infection (Heating stage), Chronic Bronchitis with Cough (Sweating stage), based on the significant circulatory and thermic reactions of Full Wet Sheet Pack incurred from 15 – 45 min of its applications. This is a first experimental study to develop more extensive study for large samples to understand and apply the same in clinical use.
