3

secondary intention

wound closure in which edges are separated, granulation tissue fills gap, epithelium grows over granulation and a large scar results

4

scar

connective tissue that fills a wound area

5

sanguineous

drainage that is fresh bleeding

6

pustule

elevated pus filled vesicle with circumscribed border

7

purelent

thick drainage from a wound, color varies depending on the bacteria that is present

8

primary intention

healing that occurs in a wound in nwhich the tissue surfaces are or have been approximated and there is minimal or no tissue loss; it is cahracterized by the formation of minimal granulation tissue and scarring

9

petechiae

pinpoint red areas in the skin

10

necrosis

death of tissues due to lack of blood supply

11

maceration

skin that becomes abnormally soft and breaks down due to prolonged exposure to moisture

12

13

ischemia

lack of oxygen carrying blood to tissues

14

drainage that is clear, watery plasma

29

collagen

a whitish protein found in connective tissue that adds strength to a wound

30

approximated

refering to wound or incision edges that are close together

31

tertiary intention

irregular wound edges are separated and more extensive process of granulation that secondary intention. closed eventually by suturing

32

sinus track (tunnel or undermining)

a channel that extends under the skin from any part of the wound and involes an area that's larger than the wound's visible surface

33

slough

to shed or cast off dead tissue
