What is the Hot Foot Bath?
The hot foot bath (HFB) consists of placing the feet in hot water (starting at 100 to 104 degrees F) and applying a cold compress to the head for 15-20 minutes. It is given at temperatures ranging from 100 to 115 degrees F. This treatment can be given with the patient sitting in a chair or lying down. Either way, you need to protect the mattress or floor with a plastic sheet.
