Question and answer
Q: identify individuals who may be at risk of impaired tissue viability and skin breakdown
A: Pressure sores or decubitus ulcers are the result of a constant deficiency of blood to the tissues over a bony area such as a heel which may have been in contact with a bed or a splint over an extended period of time. [ The surface of the skin can ulcerate which may become infected. Eventually subcutaneous and deeper tisssues are damaged. Besides the heel, other areas commonly involved are the
skin over the buttocks, sacrum, ankles hips and other bony sites of the body. Factors which influence the development and healing of pressure ulcers: ? Pressure and shear ? Impaired or restricted mobility / activity ? Sensory impairment ? Reduced level of consciousness ? Incontinence ? Poor nutrition and hydration ? Extremes of age* ? Poor posture or inadequate support ? Previous pressure damage ? Acute, chronic and terminal illness ]

User: describe the anatomy and physiology of healthy skin

Weegy: Beautiful, healthy skin is determined by the healthy structure and proper function of components within the skin. [ To maintain beautiful skin, and slow the rate at which it ages, the structures and functions of the skin must be supplemented and protected. In order to know how to supplement and protect the skin, it's important to know more about the skin's basic anatomy and composition. There are three major components of the skin. First is the hypodermis, which is subcutaneous (just beneath the skin) fat that functions as insulation and padding for the body. Next is the dermis, which provides structure and support. Last is the epidermis, which functions as a protective shield for the body. ]

User: describe the changers that occur when damage caused by pressure develops

Weegy: early signs of pressure sites are redness that doesnt fade rapidly, heat and/or swelling when pressure is relieved. there may be callous formation that has flaky skin around it and a "mushy" feeling when surrounding skin is palpitated. [ blisterlike eruptions can develop and become a profound wound if pressure relief techniques are not used conscientiously. Then you better study real hard because your patients are relying on you to help them. Hope you pass your test. ]
