Clear fluid coming from the ears or nose is called otorrhea (fluid from the ear) or rhinorrhea (fluid form the nose). The concern with these findings is that the fluid is cerebrospinal fluid resulting from a passageway from the dural space into the external environment, especially in the setting of trauma or prior neurosurgical intervention. To detect cerebrospinal fluid (the clear fluid we're concerned about) mixed with blood coming from the ears or nose, get a sample of the fluid on a gauze pad. A positive test for CSF is a clear fluid surrounding the blood, a "halo."

In the presence of head trauma they it could be cerebral spinal fluid which would be evidence of a serious injury.








When a person suffers a head injury it is possible for cerebrospinal fluid to leak out. After a head injury if the victim has clear fluid coming from the nose or ears it should be checked to determine if it is cerebrospinal fluid.

A nasopharyngeal airway, (aka NPA or a nasal trumpet), is a tube inserted into the nasal passageway of an unconscious victim to provide an open airway (when unconscious the jaw muscles relax and the tongue to falls back obstructing the airway).NPA is contraindicated (not used) in patients with severe head or facial injuries, or a basilar skull fracture (Battle's sign, raccoon eyes, cerebrospinal fluid/blood from ears, etc.) due to the possibility of direct contact with brain tissue.


Antibiotics do not always clear a clogged ear. If it does not clear on it's own you can try to clear it using a neti pot and nasal spray - I have written the instructions here on the web site Earadicator.com


There should be no pus coming from your ears. If it is in fact pus (and not just the fluid that normally comes out and coagulates into the crusties you wake up with) you need to go see a professional piercer about it immediately.


Allow to rest and if cerebrospinal fluid (CFS) is oozing out of the nose and/or ears (clear fluid) place them in the recovery position and put a pad on the casualties ear to collect the drainage of CFS


A nasopharyngeal airway is contraindicated in the following situations:- Evidence of Battle's Sign (bruising behind the ear)- Severe facial of cranial injuries.- Signs of cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) or raccoon eyes.NB: the clear fluid coming out of the patient's nose or ears is most likely CSF. CSF protects and insulates the brain, and can leak from the skull if there is head trauma.The above situations indicate the possibility of a traumatic brain injury (previously termed 'head injury'). The risk of the nasopharyngeal airway intruding with the brain is fairly high so as a precaution, an alternative airway is used. An oropharyngeal airway would be a better alternative in a patient with suspected traumatic brain injury.A nasopharyngeal airway, (aka NPA or a nasal trumpet), is a tube inserted into the nasal passageway of an unconscious victim to provide an open airway (when unconscious the jaw muscles relax and the tongue to falls back obstructing the airway).NPA is contraindicated (not used) in patients with severe head or facial injuries, or a basilar skull fracture (Battle's sign, raccoon eyes, cerebrospinal fluid/blood from ears, etc.) due to the possibility of direct contact with brain tissue.


turtles have ears so they can hear their perdetor coming towards them.


The clear fluid may be cerebrospinal fluid ( CSF), which would indicate a brain or spinal injury (skull fracture or severe damage to the spine).---In a trauma patient, clear fluid draining from the nose or ears is considered cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) until proven otherwise. One would not use a nasopharyngeal (NP) airway in this patient due to the (small, but theoretically possible) risk of cribriform plate fracture and passing the NP airway into the cerebrum.An oropharyngeal airway would be a better choice in this patient, allowing one to ventilate the patient until a definitive airway could be established, if indicated.The halo test can be used to check if the fluid is, in fact, CSF. A small amount of the fluid is allowed to drain onto a 4x4 or filter paper. Blood will collect in the center, and if it is CSF, a clear-yellow ring will surround the blood. This is not a terribly specific test, but allows one to crudely determine if CSF rhinorrhea is present.This may indicate a brain injury.

Yes dogs have ears and they have these great ears to hear from a mile or even 2 miles away. They use their ears to hear danger that might be coming their way.


Pregnancy and fluid in the ears are unrelated to the best of my knowledge. The fluid is caused by a build up in the sinuses, after a cold or sinus allergy. It can cause dizziness, pain and infection if it does not drain on it's own.


your ears are usually far apart. So it just means a wide gap.


They prick their ears because it helps them pinpoint exactly where a certain sound is coming from.


They do but they are little that we can't see because if snakes do not have ears they can't hear there food coming.
