### What is the minimum amount of time you should flush/irrigate Â an eye that has been injured by a chemical burn?

• A.

10 Minutes

• B.

20 Minutes

• C.

60 Minutes

• D.

15 Minutes

B. 20 Minutes
Explanation
When an eye is injured by a chemical burn, it is crucial to flush/irrigate the eye with water as soon as possible to minimize damage. The correct answer of 20 minutes suggests that the minimum amount of time required to flush/irrigate an eye that has been injured by a chemical burn is 20 minutes. This duration allows for a thorough flushing of the eye to remove any remaining chemicals and reduce the risk of further harm.

### Entire right arm and front of torso...What is the % of body surface burned?

• A.

18

• B.

27

• C.

36

• D.

22.5

B. 27
Explanation
The answer is 27%. This can be determined by using the rule of nines, which is a method used to estimate the percentage of body surface area burned. According to this rule, the entire right arm and front of the torso account for 27% of the total body surface area.

### Â Front of both legs, from foot to hip , groin Â and entire stomach area...What is the % of body surface burned?

• A.

27

• B.

26

• C.

28

• D.

30

• E.

55

C. 28
Explanation
The correct answer is 28. This is because the question states that the burn covers the front of both legs, from foot to hip, groin, and entire stomach area. Since these areas make up a significant portion of the body surface, it can be inferred that the burn covers approximately 28% of the total body surface.

### Entire head and entire back...What is the % of body surface burned?

• A.

36

• B.

18

• C.

27

• D.

21

C. 27
Explanation
Based on the given information, it can be inferred that the person has burns on their entire head and entire back. Since these areas make up a significant portion of the body, it is likely that the percentage of body surface burned would be relatively high. Out of the options provided, 27% is the closest to representing a substantial burn on both the head and back.

### Which type and percentage of burn requires the application of moist sterile dressings.

• A.

Full thickness greater than 10%

• B.

Partial thickness less than 30%

• C.

Full thickness less than 2%

• D.

Partial thickness less than 10%

D. Partial thickness less than 10%
Explanation
Partial thickness burns are burns that only affect the outer layer of the skin and a portion of the underlying layer. These burns are characterized by redness, blistering, and pain. When the burn is less than 10% of the total body surface area, it is considered a small burn. Moist sterile dressings are typically applied to small partial thickness burns to promote healing and prevent infection. The moisture from the dressings helps to soothe the burn and create an optimal environment for healing.

### What type of burn involves the epidermis, some portion of the dermis, and has white or red, moist and mottled skin, with blisters?

• A.

Superficial

• B.

Partial Thickness

• C.

Full thickness

• D.

4th degree

B. Partial Thickness
Explanation
Partial Thickness burns involve the epidermis and some portion of the dermis. The skin appears white or red, moist, and mottled. Blisters may also be present. This type of burn is more severe than a superficial burn but less severe than a full-thickness burn.

### A full thickness burn involving the hands or feet is considered___

• A.

Mild

• B.

Moderate

• C.

Critical

C. Critical
Explanation
A full thickness burn involving the hands or feet is considered critical because it affects the deeper layers of the skin, including the dermis and possibly even the underlying tissues. These burns are typically characterized by a lack of sensation due to nerve damage and can result in severe pain, scarring, and potential loss of function in the affected area. Additionally, full thickness burns are more prone to complications such as infection and require specialized medical treatment and long-term rehabilitation.

### A partial thickness burn covering 25% is _____

• A.

Mild

• B.

Moderate

• C.

Critical

B. Moderate
Explanation
A partial thickness burn covering 25% of the body is considered moderate. This type of burn affects both the outer and inner layers of the skin and can cause blistering, pain, and swelling. It may require medical treatment such as wound care, pain management, and possibly skin grafting. While it is not as severe as a full thickness burn, it still requires attention and care to prevent complications and promote healing.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### A full thickness burn covering 4% is____

• A.

Mild

• B.

Moderate

• C.

Critical

C. Critical
Explanation
A full thickness burn covering 4% of the body is considered critical because full thickness burns affect all layers of the skin, including the nerves and blood vessels. This type of burn can cause severe pain, damage to underlying tissues, and may require surgical intervention such as skin grafting. Additionally, a burn that covers 4% of the body indicates a significant area of injury, which increases the risk of complications such as infection and fluid loss. Therefore, prompt and intensive medical treatment is necessary to prevent further damage and promote healing.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### A superficial burn covering 45% is ___

• A.

Mild

• B.

Moderate

• C.

Critical

A. Mild
Explanation
A superficial burn covering 45% of the body is considered mild because it only affects the outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis. This type of burn typically causes redness, pain, and swelling but does not result in blistering or significant damage to the deeper layers of the skin. Although covering a relatively large area, a burn of this nature is still considered mild because it is not life-threatening and can generally be managed with basic first aid measures such as cool water and pain relief medication.
