CHAPTER TWO. Healing Response in Acute and Chronic Wounds

++
++
++

A contaminated, full thickness wound of significant size would most likely undergo which category(s) of healing?

++
++
++

a. Category 1 (primary healing)

++
++

b. Category 2 (delayed primary healing)

++
++

c. Category 3 (secondary healing)

++
++

d. Category 4 (chronic wound healing)

++
++
++

Critical wound healing is the time required for a wound to heal to the point where it becomes self-supportive and function has been restored. T or F?

++
++
++

a. True

++
++

b. False

++
++
++

Which wound healing phase is characterized by granulation tissue?

++
++
++

a. Hemostasis

++
++

b. Inflammation

++
++

c. Proliferation/maturation

++
++

d. Remodeling

++
++
++

When does inflammation begin?

++
++
++

a. Immediately post-injury

++
++

b. When neo-angiogenesis is evident in the wound bed

++
++

c. When bleeding is fully arrested

++
++

d. When wound contraction is evident

++
++
++

When does proliferation begin?

++
++
++

a. Proliferation overlaps with inflammation with epithelial cell migration at the wound edges.

++
++

b. When the damaged tissue has largely been replaced and begins to regain strength with the deposition of collagen, primarily type III.

++
++

c. When there is an expansion of blood vessels (angiogenesis) and the initiation of wound contraction to complement closure that is driven by the presence of myofibroblasts.

++
++

d. When capillary buds are first visible in the wound bed.

++
++
++

During remodeling, Type III collagen is replaced with

++
++
++

a. Type I collagen

++
++

b. Type II collagen

++
++

c. Type IV collagen

++
++

d. Type V collagen
