    The number of foam pieces placed in the wound must be counted and documented with each dressing change.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to count and document the number of foam pieces placed in the wound with each dressing change to ensure that none are left behind or lost in the wound. This helps to prevent infection and ensure proper healing.

  • 5. 

    If foam pieces are inserted into a tunneled or undermined area, a visible tail piece must be left in the main body of the wound to ensure removal.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Foam pieces are often used in wound care to promote healing and absorb excess fluid. When inserted into a tunneled or undermined area of a wound, it is important to leave a visible tail piece in the main body of the wound. This tail piece serves as a marker and ensures that the foam can be easily located and removed during dressing changes. Without a visible tail piece, it would be difficult to locate and remove the foam, potentially causing further damage or infection. Therefore, the statement is true.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that even if the dressing does not need to be changed, it is still important to assess the VAC dressing and document its status and pressure setting in the powerchart. This is necessary to ensure that the dressing is functioning properly and to monitor the progress of the wound healing process. By documenting these details, healthcare professionals can track any changes or issues with the dressing and make any necessary adjustments or interventions.
