From Latin inhibit, inhibit is a verb which refers to repress, restrain or contain . Who cohibs is responsible for moderating, tempering or stopping something. For example: "Mario tried to inhibit me with his words but I allowed him to ruin my presentation", "The government decided to deploy police forces to try to inhibit violent protests", "The teacher sought to inhibit students with threats of sanctions", "I will not be inhibited by the looks of a group of strangers".
Cohibition is usually associated with a limited behavior of a person by shame or fear. A teenager who often expresses himself with rudeness can be self-conscious if he finds himself before an older person, and this can lead him to take care of his vocabulary. In a similar sense, it is common for people who usually go around the house in their underwear to dress before receiving visitors, since the idea of being seen so discovered is forbidden.
The concept is linked to the notion of inhibit , which is defined as repressing or preventing the exercise of habits or of faculties . This means that inhibiting is usually associated with an external force, while inhibition is usually caused by an internal mechanism.
In some cases, however, the difference cannot be determined exactly. A man who plans to make a protest to his employer for lack of payment but who is warned of a possible dismissal if he continues with his attitude, may be inhibited by such threat (represses his actions to avoid a greater evil) or inhibited (his action is alibi by your employer).
A hemorrhage is the way out of blood through the vessels through which it must circulate, and this entails a gradual loss that must be controlled before the situation becomes too complicated. The term inhibit is also used in this context, as a synonym for brake, and there are a number of fundamental steps to achieve this:
* First, it is necessary to discover the part of the body affected by the wound to be able to locate the exact point of bleeding and to determine its class (which can be arterial, venous or capillary);
* exert direct pressure on the blood outlet for at least five minutes with a compress. It is important not to replace it if it is soaked with blood, but to place another one on top of it, to prevent the clot that should begin to form from falling apart;
* if it is not possible to inhibit the hemorrhage with the two previous steps, then it will be necessary to exercise Pressure at a point between the wound and the heart, to prevent blood from reaching the wound. This step is considered a measure hint;
* Again, if the last advice does not give the expected result, you can try raising the affected area above the level of the heart to see if the severity causes the bleeding to decrease.
Another way to inhibit a hemorrhage it consists of placing ice inside a bag or a piece of clean cloth and surrounding the affected part (this is known as cryotherapy). When an amputation occurs, it is necessary to act as follows:
* place a bandage about 5 cm from the wound;
* take two turns around the member;
* tie a knot and place a stake on it;
* perform two knots more about the rod;
* turn carefully until the bleeding stops;
* release and press again after about six minutes have passed;
In this way we can inhibit bleeding; However, it is essential that we take the injured person to the nearest hospital in case he needs to have some type of suture or more specific treatment.
