++
++

The ultrasound frequency range used to facilitate tissue repair and wound healing is

++

a. Less than 20 KHz

++
++

b. 40 KHz-3 MHz

++
++

c. 3-7 MHz

++
++

a. Duty cycle

++
++

b. Frequency

++
++

c. Voltage

++
++

d. Intensity

++

c. Unstable cavitation

++
++

d. Banding

++

++
++
++

a. Pulsed mode with 25% duty cycle

++
++

b. Maximum of 5 minutes treatment time

++
++

c. Water as the conduction medium

++
++

d. 1 MHz frequency

++
++
++

Which of the following conditions is an absolute contraindication for the use of noncontact, low-frequency ultrasound?

++
++
++

a. Vasculitis

++
++

b. Any painful wound

++
++

c. Arterial insufficiency

++
++

d. Malignant tissue

++
++
++

Ultrasound is indicated in any of the wound healing phases except

++
++
++

a. Hemostasis

++
++

b. Inflammation

++
++
