Ice pack

A cold local application to limit or reduce swelling in recently traumatized tissues, usually in the form of a waterproof container for ice. Improvised means for containing ice (plastic bags, towels) are often employed, as are chemical sacks that when struck allow the commingling of chemicals that react endothermically.
