### What percent of the skin surface area involving burns of the cephalic region?

Explanation
The given answer, 4.5, represents the percentage of the skin surface area involving burns of the cephalic region. This means that approximately 4.5% of the skin on the head and neck region has been affected by burns.

### Which percentage of skin surface area found in the abdominopelvic region fits the Rule of Nines?

• A.

4.5%

• B.

9.0%

• C.

18.0%

• D.

65.0%

C. 18.0%
Explanation
The Rule of Nines is a method used to estimate the percentage of total body surface area (TBSA) affected by burns. According to this rule, the abdominopelvic region accounts for approximately 18.0% of the TBSA. This means that if a burn covers the entire abdominopelvic region, it would be estimated to affect 18.0% of the total body surface area.

### Which percentage is correct of skin surface area being burned is found in the pubic region of the body?

• A.

1.0%

• B.

4.5%

• C.

9.0%

• D.

18.0%

A. 1.0%
Explanation
The correct answer is 1.0%. This implies that only 1.0% of the skin surface area is burned in the pubic region of the body. It is important to note that this percentage specifically refers to the pubic region and not the entire body.

### Which Rule of Nines best fits the Sural region of the body as it relates to burns?

• A.

1.0%

• B.

4.5%

• C.

9.0%

• D.

18.0%

C. 9.0%
Explanation
The Rule of Nines is a method used to estimate the percentage of body surface area affected by burns. It divides the body into regions, with each region representing a certain percentage. The Sural region refers to the lower leg area. According to the Rule of Nines, the Sural region is estimated to make up approximately 9.0% of the total body surface area.

### The Rule of Nines work well with____?

• A.

• B.

Child

• C.

Infants

• D.

Teenagers

Explanation
The Rule of Nines is a method used to estimate the percentage of body surface area affected by burns. It divides the body into regions, with each region representing 9% (or a multiple of 9%) of the total body surface area. This method is most commonly used for adults, as their body proportions are similar and can be easily divided into these regions. However, it may not be as accurate for children, infants, or teenagers due to their different body proportions. Therefore, the Rule of Nines works well with adults.

### The Rule of Palms used in determination of burn victims is more accurate than the Rule of Nines.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The Rule of Palms used in determination of burn victims is not more accurate than the Rule of Nines. The Rule of Nines is a widely accepted method for estimating the extent of burns by dividing the body into regions that represent 9% or multiples of 9% of the total body surface area. On the other hand, the Rule of Palms is a less precise method that uses the patient's own palm size to estimate the percentage of burn. While the Rule of Palms may provide a quick estimate in certain situations, it is generally considered less accurate compared to the Rule of Nines.

### What is the name of the medical chart that takes large surface areas such the thoracic region of growing children into account.

• A.

Boyles Burn Chart

• B.

Browder Chart

• C.

Lund-Browder Chart

• D.

Michelson Chart

C. Lund-Browder Chart
Explanation
The Lund-Browder Chart is the correct answer because it is a medical chart specifically designed to take into account the large surface areas of the body, such as the thoracic region, in growing children. This chart is used to accurately estimate the extent and severity of burns, as well as to guide treatment and determine the appropriate amount of fluid resuscitation needed. It takes into consideration the changing proportions of body surface area as a child grows, making it a more accurate tool for assessing burns in pediatric patients.

### A ___ - ____ burn causes minor discomfort and some reddening of the skin.

• A.

First-degree

• B.

Second-degree

• C.

Third-degree

• D.

Fourth-degree

A. First-degree
Explanation
A first-degree burn causes minor discomfort and some reddening of the skin. It is the mildest type of burn, affecting only the outer layer of the skin. The skin may appear red and may be painful to touch, but there are no blisters or open wounds. This type of burn usually heals within a few days without leaving any scars.

### A third-degree burn is characterized by the deep epidermal layers, blisters, severe pain, and generalized swelling of the affected area.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
A third-degree burn is not characterized by the deep epidermal layers, blisters, severe pain, and generalized swelling of the affected area. Third-degree burns actually involve damage to all layers of the skin, including the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. They often result in a charred or white appearance, with little or no pain due to nerve damage. Blisters are more commonly associated with second-degree burns.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### The distinction between second-degree and third-degree burning is the first-degree lesion is insensitive to pain.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The distinction between second-degree and third-degree burning is not that the first-degree lesion is insensitive to pain. First-degree burns are superficial and only affect the outermost layer of the skin, causing redness and pain. Second-degree burns involve the deeper layers of the skin and can cause blistering and more intense pain. Third-degree burns are the most severe and extend through all layers of the skin, resulting in a loss of sensation due to nerve damage. Therefore, the statement in the question is incorrect.

### We typically think of a burn as being____. Check the list below and choose the incorrect answer.

• A.

Hot object

• B.

• C.

Chemical Exposure

• D.

Electric Current

• E.

Sonic Exposure

E. Sonic Exposure
Explanation
An incorrect answer for the question would be "Sonic Exposure." This is because burns are typically caused by hot objects, ultraviolet radiation, chemical exposure, and electric current, but not by sonic exposure. Sonic exposure refers to exposure to sound waves, which can cause other types of damage such as hearing loss or damage to internal organs, but not burns.

### First and Second-degree burns are called_____?

• A.

Full-thickness

• B.

Impartial-thickness

• C.

Partial-thickness

• D.

None of the above answers are correct

C. Partial-thickness
Explanation
Partial-thickness burns refer to first and second-degree burns. First-degree burns are superficial burns that only affect the outer layer of the skin, causing redness and pain. Second-degree burns are deeper burns that affect both the outer layer and the underlying layer of the skin, causing redness, blistering, and intense pain. Therefore, the term "partial-thickness" accurately describes both types of burns.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### A sunburn is classified as which type of burn?

• A.

First-degree

• B.

Second-degree

• C.

Third-degree

A. First-degree
Explanation
A sunburn is classified as a first-degree burn because it only affects the top layer of the skin, known as the epidermis. This type of burn is characterized by redness, pain, and mild swelling. The damage is usually superficial and heals within a few days to a week. Second-degree burns involve damage to both the epidermis and the underlying layer, causing blisters and more severe symptoms. Third-degree burns are the most severe, affecting all layers of the skin and potentially causing permanent damage.
