How long does it take for hyperemia (non-blanchable erythema) to set in?
30 min
45 min
60 min
120 min
In patients/residents with darker pigmented skin, how does hyperemia appear?
Red
Blue
Purple
All of the Above
What method listed is NOT a way to illuminate darker pigmented skin to look for pressure injuries?
Artificial Light
Natural Light
A pen light
Moistening the skin
What is a device that alerts staff to reposition a patient and automatically documents this into the medical record?
Repositioning monitoring system
EMR
Digital imaging
None of the above
What is a tool that can be used to assess skin breakdown and early-stage PIs? This tool can take a photo or video of the skin and detect metabolic abnormalities that are caused by partial or complete occlusion of dermal capillaries.
Repositioning monitoring system
EMR
Thermal Imaging
None of the above
The development of a pressure injury depends ONLY on the amount of time that area of tissue is exposed to unrelieved pressure. True or false?
True
False
Friction and shearing forces do not contribute to pressure injuries. True or false?
True
False. They cause PIs to develop as a result of the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin separating and tearing capillaries within tissue—leading to impaired perfusion.
Which of the following is NOT a risk factor to be considered when determining whether a patient/resident is at risk for developing a pressure injury?
Immobility
Decreased or absent sensation
Diabetes
Vascular disease
Malnutrition
Incontinence
Poor positioning
Restful Sleep
There are five factors that a clinician should assess to determine the amount of risk a patient/resident has for developing a PI. Four of them are temperature, color, moisture level, and skin integrity. What is the fifth?
Turgor
Dolor
Rubor
Calor
What are some support surfaces that clinicians can provide to patients/residents at risk for developing pressure injuries?
Pillows
Donuts
Low-air loss/ alternating air mattresses
