"The very first canon of nursing, the
first and the last thing upon which a nurse's attention must be fixed, the
first to a patient, without which all the rest you can do for him is
nothing, which I had almost said you
may leave all the rest alone, is this: TO KEEP THE AIR HE
BREATHES AS PURE AS THE EXTERNAL AIR WITHOUT CHILLING HIM".
From "Notes on Nursing" 1898 Florence Nightingale (1820 - 1910)
Now, that's the
ABC's 1800's style!
