Flashcards in Inflammation, Wounds, and Pressure Ulcers part 3 Deck (12)
Final phase of the inflammatory response.
What are the 2 main components?
Two major components:
Replace cells and tissues with same type
2. Repair—most common
Connective tissue replaces lost cells
Primary, secondary, or tertiary intention
Explain an intentional wound.
-planned therapy or treatment EX: surgery
-wound edges are clean
-decreased risk of infection
Explain unintentional wound.
-EX: falls trauma
-contamination is likely
-wound edges are jagged
Cutting or sharp instrument; wound edges in close approximation and aligned
Blunt instrument, overlying skin remains intact, with injury to underlying soft tissue; possible resultant bruising and/or hematoma
Friction; rubbing or scraping epidermal layers of skin; top layer of skin abraded
Tearing of skin and tissue with blunt or irregular instrument; tissue not aligned, often with loose flaps of skin and tissue
Blunt or sharp instrument puncturing the skin; intentional (such as venipuncture) or accidental
Compromised circulation secondary to pressure or pressure combined with friction
Injury and poor venous return, resulting from underlying conditions, such as incompetent valves or obstruction
Injury and underlying ischemia, resulting from underlying conditions, such as atherosclerosis or thrombosis
