These glands secrete a waxy substance:
The layer of skin that is made up of mostly dead cells and provides the waterproof envelope that contains the body is the:
The layers of the arteries and veins in order from exterior to interior are
adventitia, media, intima.
The blood velles that have a wall only one cell thick are the:
In the limbs, fascia define
compartments with relatively fixed volumes.
Lacerations perpendicular to skin tension lines will cause:
the wound to gape.
The wound type characterized by a collection of blood under the skin is the
The wound type characterized by a deep wound whose opening closes after injury is the
Prolonged crush injury (crush syndrome) permits the accumulation of
A likely cause of an avulsion is
severe glancing blow to the scalp,
The natural ability of the body to halt blood loss is
Most blood vessels, when cut cleanly, will
withdraw and constrict, limiting the rate of hemorrhage.
The cells that attack invading pathogens directly or through an antibody response are
The stage of the healing process in which skin cells regenerate to restore a uniform layer of skin cells along the wound border is:
The stage of the healing process in which capillaries grow to perfuse the healing tissue is:
The following are soft tissue wound infection risk factors:
The booster for tetanus is effective for:
These can interfere with normal clotting:
The excessive growth of scar tissue beyond the boundaries of the wound is
keloid scar formation.
The process of actual tissue death is
Most dressings used in prehospital emergency care are
sterile, nonocclusive, nonadherent, absorbent dressings.
The type of bandage that has limited stretch and conforms well to the body contour is the:
self-adherent roller bandage.
As a minimum, how long should you maintain pressure when trying to control hemorrhage?
The dangers of a tourniquet include:
increased hemorrhage if pressure is not sufficient,
possible loss of limb,
accumulation of toxins in the limb,
tissue damage beneath the tourniquet.
The restoration of circulation once a tourniquet is released may cause:
You should remove gross contamination from a wound if you can do so
quickly and without further injury.
The ideal position for splinting a limb is halfway between extension and flexion and is called the
position of function.
The recommended procedure for packaging an amputated part for transport includes:
keeping it dry and cool.
Most patients of crush syndrome can be identified before
extrication is complete.
With compartment syndrome, motor and sensory function are
A wound involving these requires transport:
Most prehospital protocols do not
address the proper care for crush syndrome patients.
