Aspirin (ASA) is discouraged for treatment of viral infections in children because of:
the risk of developing Rye's syndrome
Systemic manifestations of inflammation include all EXCEPT
Which of the following cellular elements found in the inflammatory response are responsible for phagocytes?
Which chemical mediator is involved in prolonging the inflammatory response?
Potential complications after healing by scar formation include all the following EXCEPT
increased hair growth
All of the following are correct statements regarding wound healing EXCEPT
granulation tissue forms a permanent replacement for damaged tissue
Which of the following statements regarding inflammation is incorrect?
disorders are named using the ending -sarcoma to indicate inflammation
Which of the following helps to localize and contain the foreign material during an inflammatory response?
Why is an application of cold recommended as part of the RICE first aid measures immediately following an inflammatory response due to injury? Because cold
causes local vasoconstriction to reduce local edema
One goal for current research in tissue engineering is to
create a functional replacement tissue when regeneration is not possible
Identify the proper sequence in the healing process
1. a blood clot forms 2. phagocytes remove foreign material and cell debris 3. granulation tissue grows into the gap 4. new blood vessels form 5. collagen fibers promote formation of a tight strong scar
All are factors that promote healing EXCEPT
Identify the correct statements about burns
the severity of the burn depends on the temperature and the duration and extent of the burn
Which statement applies to the recommended emergency care for burns?
cover the burn area with clean, cool or tapid water and remove nonsticking clothing
Inhalation of carbon monoxide is a threat for many burn patients because this gas:
quickly reduces the available oxygen in the blood
Hypermetabolism is common with major burns because of:
increased heat loss from the burn wound demand for tissue repair recurrent stress response
How does scar tissue usually cause obstructions to develop in tube-like structures?
scar tissue does not stretch, but rather shrinks in time, causing narrowing
Which of the following is a serious potential complication found only with the anti-inflammatory COX-2 inhibitor drugs?
