Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the definition of a pressure ulcer?

    • A.

      Rupture in the stomach wall

    • B.

      Another word for neuropathy

    • C.

      Locatized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue

    • D.

      Ulcer related to diseases

    Correct Answer
    C. Locatized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue
    Explanation
    A pressure ulcer is a localized injury that occurs when pressure is applied to the skin and underlying tissue, causing damage. It is not a rupture in the stomach wall or another word for neuropathy. Pressure ulcers are specifically related to injuries on the skin and underlying tissue, rather than being directly related to diseases.

    Pressure ulcers come in how many stages?

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      8

    • C.

      1

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    D. 4
    Explanation
    Pressure ulcers come in four stages. This means that there are four different levels of severity for pressure ulcers. The stages range from stage 1, which is the least severe, to stage 4, which is the most severe. Each stage has specific characteristics and symptoms that help healthcare professionals determine the appropriate treatment for the pressure ulcer.

    What is DTI?

    • A.

      Deep tissue injury

    • B.

      Discolored tissue injury

    • C.

      Detected tissue injury

    Correct Answer
    A. Deep tissue injury
    Explanation
    DTI stands for deep tissue injury. This refers to a type of injury that occurs in the deeper layers of the skin and underlying tissues. It is characterized by damage to the underlying tissues, such as muscles, tendons, or bones, while the surface of the skin may appear intact. This type of injury is often caused by prolonged pressure or shear forces on the skin, leading to damage to the underlying tissues. It is important to recognize and treat DTIs promptly to prevent further complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    DTI may first appear as a

    • A.

      Dry skin

    • B.

      Laceration

    • C.

      Bruise

    • D.

      Scrap

    Correct Answer
    C. Bruise
    Explanation
    DTI stands for Deep Tissue Injury, which is a type of injury that occurs deep within the tissues of the body. It may first appear as a bruise, which is a discoloration of the skin caused by bleeding underneath the surface. Unlike a dry skin, laceration, or scrape, a bruise indicates damage to the underlying tissues. This could be due to trauma or pressure, leading to the rupture of blood vessels and subsequent bleeding. Therefore, a bruise is a more likely presentation for DTI compared to the other options provided.

    All pressure ulcers are found where?

    • A.

      Fatty area

    • B.

      Bony area

    Correct Answer
    B. Bony area
    Explanation
    Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, are typically found in bony areas of the body. This is because these areas have less padding and are more susceptible to pressure and friction, which can lead to the breakdown of skin and underlying tissues. Bony areas, such as the heels, hips, tailbone, and elbows, are particularly prone to developing pressure ulcers in individuals who are immobile or spend prolonged periods in one position. The lack of adequate blood flow and oxygen to these areas further increases the risk of pressure ulcer formation.

    A stage II ulcer is not

    • A.

      Just red area

    • B.

      Partial thickness loss of dermis

    • C.

      Shallow open ulcer

    • D.

      May be intact or open

    Correct Answer
    A. Just red area
    Explanation
    A stage II ulcer is not just a red area. It involves partial thickness loss of the dermis, meaning that the top layer of the skin is damaged. It can appear as a shallow open ulcer or may still be intact.

  • 7. 

    Stage III appears as a blister with or without skin intact?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Stage III pressure ulcers appear as a blister with or without skin intact. This means that at this stage, the skin is broken and there may be a blister formation. The blister can either have the skin intact, meaning it is still covering the area, or it can be open, with the skin broken and exposing the underlying tissue. This is a characteristic feature of stage III pressure ulcers and helps in their identification and classification.

  • 8. 

    In Stage III bone and tendons are visable

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In Stage III of bone and tendon injuries, they are not visible. This stage typically involves complete rupture or severe damage to the bone or tendon, resulting in loss of function and significant pain. It may require surgical intervention for repair. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    In stage IV which is flase

    • A.

      Bone/tendon are visable

    • B.

      Just a flesh wound

    • C.

      Osteomylitis is possible

    • D.

      Slough or eschar may be present

    Correct Answer
    B. Just a flesh wound
    Explanation
    The statement "just a flesh wound" is the correct answer because it contradicts the other options mentioned in the question. In stage IV, bone/tendon visibility, the possibility of osteomyelitis, and the presence of slough or eschar are all indicative of severe tissue damage and infection, which are not characteristics of a "just a flesh wound."

    What needs to be done to determine the stage of a pressure ulcer

    • A.

      Nothing just keep it clean and dry

    • B.

      Remove slough and/or eschar to expose the base

    Correct Answer
    A. Nothing just keep it clean and dry
    Explanation
    To determine the stage of a pressure ulcer, it is necessary to assess the depth and severity of the wound. This typically involves removing any slough or eschar that may be covering the wound in order to expose the base and determine the extent of tissue damage. However, the given answer suggests that nothing needs to be done except keeping the ulcer clean and dry, which is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Nucrotic ulcers are

    • A.

      Found on the back

    • B.

      Found on or around the knee area

    • C.

      A stage I ulcer

    • D.

      Found on the foot

    Correct Answer
    D. Found on the foot
    Explanation
    Necrotic ulcers are typically found on the foot. Necrotic ulcers refer to areas of dead tissue, which can occur due to various reasons such as poor circulation, pressure, or infection. The foot is particularly susceptible to developing necrotic ulcers because it is often subjected to pressure and friction while walking or standing. Additionally, the foot is prone to reduced blood flow, especially in individuals with diabetes or peripheral artery disease, further increasing the risk of developing necrotic ulcers in this area.
