    • D.

      Fibrinous/ Proteinaceous

    Correct Answer
    D. Fibrinous/ Proteinaceous
    Explanation
    Fibrinous/Proteinaceous exudate adheres to a wound bed. This type of exudate is thick and sticky, consisting of fibrin and proteins that form a mesh-like structure. It helps to create a protective barrier over the wound, preventing further damage and promoting healing. Fibrinous/Proteinaceous exudate is commonly seen in wounds that are healing by secondary intention or in wounds with a high level of inflammation.

    Rate this question:

  • 12.

    • A.

      Serosanguineous

    • B.

      Serous

    • C.

      Fibrinous/ proteinaceous

    • D.

      Purulent

    Correct Answer
    B. Serous
    Explanation
    Serous exudate is a type of fluid that is thin and transparent in consistency. It is commonly observed in inflammatory conditions where there is a mild increase in vascular permeability. This exudate contains a small amount of protein and few cells, such as leukocytes. It is typically seen in early stages of inflammation and is often associated with mild inflammation or non-infected wounds. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "Serous."

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which of the following is not good for use on exudating wounds

    • A.

      Composites

    • B.

      Hydrocolloids

    • C.

      Hydrogels

    • D.

      Semi permeable foams

    Correct Answer
    C. Hydrogels
    Explanation
    Hydrogels are not good for use on exudating wounds because they are highly absorbent and can cause maceration of the wound bed. Exudating wounds produce a lot of fluid, and hydrogels can become saturated quickly, leading to excessive moisture on the wound surface. This can hinder the healing process and increase the risk of infection. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid using hydrogels on exudating wounds and opt for other dressings that are better suited for managing wound exudate.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Which wound dressing does not require a second dressing?

    • A.

      Alginates

    • B.

      Semi permeable films

    • C.

      Semi permeable foams

    • D.

      Hydrogels

    Correct Answer
    B. Semi permeable films
    Explanation
    Semi-permeable films are wound dressings that do not require a second dressing. These films are designed to create a barrier over the wound while allowing for the exchange of gases and moisture vapor. They adhere to the skin surrounding the wound and provide a protective layer that helps to prevent infection. Unlike other types of wound dressings, such as alginates, semi-permeable foams, and hydrogels, semi-permeable films do not require an additional dressing to be applied on top.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Which is a disadvantage to alginates

    • A.

      Usually costly

    • B.

      Poor absorptive quality

    • C.

      It can dehydrate a wound bed

    • D.

      May cause maceration

    Correct Answer
    C. It can dehydrate a wound bed
    Explanation
    Alginates have several advantages as wound dressings, such as their ability to absorb large amounts of exudate and create a moist wound environment. However, one of the disadvantages of alginates is that they can dehydrate a wound bed. This means that they have the potential to remove moisture from the wound, which can hinder the healing process. It is important to monitor the wound closely when using alginates and ensure that the wound bed remains adequately moist to promote healing.

      Used on any type of wound

    • C.

      Decreased trauma with dressing removal

    • D.

      Good visual monitoring

    Correct Answer
    D. Good visual monitoring
    Explanation
    Semi-permeable films provide a good advantage of allowing for good visual monitoring of the wound. This means that healthcare professionals can easily observe the wound without removing the dressing, which can be beneficial for assessing the progress of healing, identifying any signs of infection, or detecting any complications. This advantage helps in providing appropriate and timely treatment to the patient.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which is not a disadvantage to semi permeable foams

      Not for infected wounds

    • B.

      No direct visual monitoring

    • C.

      Maceration of tissue possible upon saturation

    • D.

      Poor absorptive quality

    Correct Answer
    D. Poor absorptive quality
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Poor absorptive quality". This means that semi-permeable foams do not have the disadvantage of having a poor absorptive quality. This implies that they are able to effectively absorb fluids and exudate from wounds, which is beneficial for wound healing.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    WHICH IS NOT AN ADVANTAGE TO SEMI PERMEABLE FOAMS

    • A.

      Good exudate absorption

    • B.

      Create a microbial barrier

    • C.

      Has moist wound environment

    • D.

      Has good oxygen permeability

    Correct Answer
    B. Create a microbial barrier
    Explanation
    Creating a microbial barrier is not an advantage of semi-permeable foams. Semi-permeable foams are commonly used in wound care because they have good exudate absorption, maintain a moist wound environment, and have good oxygen permeability. However, they do not create a microbial barrier, meaning they do not prevent the entry of bacteria or other microorganisms into the wound.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Which is not a disadvantage to hydrogels

    • A.

      SOOTHES PAIN

    • B.

      GOOD EXUDATE ABSORPTION

    • C.

      GOOD FOR DRY WOUNDS, REHYDRATE

    • D.

      CAN BE REMOVED WITHOUT TRAUMA TO THE WOUND

    Correct Answer
    D. CAN BE REMOVED WITHOUT TRAUMA TO THE WOUND
    Explanation
    The statement "CAN BE REMOVED WITHOUT TRAUMA TO THE WOUND" is not a disadvantage but rather an advantage of hydrogels. 

    Hydrogels are known for being non-adherent and can be removed from wounds without causing trauma. This property helps in minimizing pain and discomfort during dressing changes, making them a favorable choice for certain types of wounds. The other options listed, such as soothing pain, good exudate absorption, and being good for dry wounds to rehydrate, are all considered advantages of hydrogels in wound care.

    Which is not an advantage to Hydrocolloids?

    • A.

      Easy to apply

    • B.

      Used on infected wounds

    • C.

      Create a microbial barrier

    • D.

      Promotes autolytic debridement

    Correct Answer
    B. Used on infected wounds
    Explanation
    Hydrocolloids are advantageous in many ways, such as being easy to apply, creating a microbial barrier, and promoting autolytic debridement. However, using hydrocolloids on infected wounds is not an advantage. Infected wounds require specific treatment, such as antibiotics or antiseptics, to address the infection. Hydrocolloids may not be effective in treating infections and could potentially worsen the condition. Therefore, using hydrocolloids on infected wounds is not recommended.

      Some can be used on infected wounds

    • C.

      Easy to apply

    • D.

      Comfortable around wounds

    Correct Answer
    A. Good for burns
    Explanation
    Composites are not advantageous for burns because they can trap heat and cause further damage to the burned area. Unlike other advantages listed, such as being used on infected wounds, being easy to apply, and being comfortable around wounds, composites do not provide any specific benefits for burn injuries. Instead, specialized burn dressings or treatments are typically recommended for effective burn care.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Which is not a disadvantage to composites?

    • A.

      Usually costly

    • B.

      Can cause tissue trauma upon removal

    • C.

      Not for use on necrotic wounds

    • D.

      Poor exudate absorption

    Correct Answer
    D. Poor exudate absorption
    Explanation
    Composites do not have a disadvantage of poor exudate absorption. Exudate refers to the fluid that is released from wounds during the healing process. Since composites do not have poor exudate absorption, they are able to effectively manage the fluid and promote healing. This is an advantage of composites compared to other wound dressings that may struggle with exudate absorption.
