1

Final phase of the inflammatory response.
What are the 2 main components?

-healing
Two major components:
1. Regeneration
Replace cells and tissues with same type
2. Repair—most common
Connective tissue replaces lost cells
Primary, secondary, or tertiary intention

2

Explain an intentional wound.

-planned therapy or treatment EX: surgery
-wound edges are clean
-bleeding controlled
-decreased risk of infection
-healing facilitated

3

Explain unintentional wound.

-accidental
-EX: falls trauma
-contamination is likely
-wound edges are jagged
-bleeding uncontrolled

4

Cutting or sharp instrument; wound edges in close approximation and aligned

incision

5

Blunt instrument, overlying skin remains intact, with injury to underlying soft tissue; possible resultant bruising and/or hematoma

contusion

6

Friction; rubbing or scraping epidermal layers of skin; top layer of skin abraded

Abrasion

7

Tearing of skin and tissue with blunt or irregular instrument; tissue not aligned, often with loose flaps of skin and tissue

laceration

8

Blunt or sharp instrument puncturing the skin; intentional (such as venipuncture) or accidental

puncture

9

Compromised circulation secondary to pressure or pressure combined with friction

pressure ulcers

10

Injury and poor venous return, resulting from underlying conditions, such as incompetent valves or obstruction

venous ulcers

11

Injury and underlying ischemia, resulting from underlying conditions, such as atherosclerosis or thrombosis

arterial ulcers

12

Injury and underlying diabetic neuropathy, peripheral arterial disease, diabetic foot structure

diabetic ulcers
