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. ]

compare the experience of dementia for an individual who has acquired it as an older person with the experience of an individual who has acquired it as a younger person?
Weegy: Dementia is not solely an older people's condition. In the UK there are over 17,000 people under the age of 65 who have dementia. [ The assessment, diagnosis and provision of appropriate care and treatment for younger people with dementia, pose particular challenges. This is partly because their numbers are small and therefore dispersed geographically, but also because their life circumstances are likely to be different to those of older people - they may still be in work, have young families and have mortgages to pay. ] (More)

explain when an initail tissue viability risk assessment may be required
Weegy: Alcohol and drug use can progress into abuse and even addition so insidiously that sometimes people do not realize that their drinking or drugging has become a real problem for them and those around them. The progression of addiction - and the [ [ chaos it can cause for those close to the substance abuser - has been illustrated with the story of the frog in the water. The story goes, if you put a frog in a pot of hot water, he will jump out immediately. But if you put the same frog in a pan of water that is body temperature and then very slowly turn up the heat, the frog will not jump out even at the boiling point. ] ] (More)
