clear

(klēr)
1. A colloquial term used in cardiopulmonary resuscitation to warn nearby staff that a patient is about to receive an electrical shock (during cardioversion or defibrillation) and should not be in contact with another person, so that no one involved in the resuscitation will inadvertently be injured by the shock.

Patient care

The protection of rescuers in a resuscitation is usually ensured by the person in charge of the code. He or she should methodically examine the safe position of all participants in the event and chant (while verifying that no one is in contact with the patient): "I'm clear. You're clear. We are all clear." Only after this should a shock be administered.

2. To remove (something) from the body or from a body compartment or body fluid.

Patient discussion about clear

Q. Is there something out there to clear blockish in the heart? I often face blockish in my heart which I feel very pain and difficult to breathe. Is there something out there to clear blockish in the heart?

A. I know we walk around this world feeling good and healthy but really don't know the truth of what is going on in our body. I want to know is there something out there like a pill or whatever to clear up your clogged arteries if that was the problem, I don't know why but I have this thing in my head that I have some blockage I did get checked and everything is good. But you know how some people think of something too much and untimately end up in worry. No! There are prescription blood thinners, etc, that are for people with much clogged arteries, who are at very high risk of stroke. But they are dangerous - they can cause severe bruising, uncontrolled bleeding, and uncontrolled unnoticed internal bleeding from the slightest trauma! The risk is simply not worth it. Of course, watch your cholesterol intake.

Q. Can someone clear in simple term to make me understand—please? A difficult and new confusion struck me….. Can someone clear in simple term to make me understand—please? What makes TCM close to modern medicine and what are 5-element treatment and their role in depression and related disorders like bipolar.

A. To be simple let me say that TCM is similar to modern type of system as they try to link the diagnosis with the biochemical nature of the body. TCM diagnoses and try to treat bipolar and other depression related disorder from physiochemical understanding., whereas 5-element therapy does not treat body as it is concerned with spirit treatment and is completely different subject to understand and yes it has been reported to heal depression in many.

Q. How long will our leaders continue sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I did research on hetro-sexual lifestyle and found many interesting facts. I do not approve that and we all know the HERETO-sexual lifestyle leads to alcoholism, drug addiction, STDs including AIDS, fatherless children, poverty and spousal abuse. How long will our leaders continue to sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I am getting sick on this and I think our future generations would suffer a lot. I have been doing this for quite a while but I think it is time for me to garner some feedback on the issue. Well if you people in this forum have some social responsibilities please share your views.
