Definition of INFUSION


INFUSION

t or cold fluid upon a substance, whose medical
properties it is desired to extract. Infusion is also used for the
product of this operation. Although infusion differs from
decoction, (q. v.) they are said to be ejusdem generis; and in the
case of an indictment which charged the prisoner with giving a
decoction, and the evidence was that he had given an infusion, the
difference was held to be immaterial. 8 Camp. R. 74.
