Key Terminology abrasion laceration wound debridement pressure ulcer decubetus ulcer puncture exudates surgical incision The skin acts as a barrier to protect the body from the potentially harmful external environment. When the skin’s integrity (intactness) is broken, the body’s internal environment is open to microorganisms that cause infection. It may be accidental or intentional such as abrasion (rubbing off the skin’s surface); a puncture wound (stab wound); or laceration (a wound with torn, ragged edges). A wound that occurs accidentally is contaminated; intentional wounds are made under sterile conditions. First intention healing occurs in wounds with minimal tissue loss, such as surgical incisions or sutured wounds. Second intention healing occurs with tissue loss, such as in deep laceration, burns, and pressure ulcers. Third intention healing occurs when there is a delay in the time between the injury and closure of the wound. For example, a wound may be left open temporarily to allow for drainage or removal of infectious materials.

Removal of the Stitch Technique: Use aseptic technique 317 Principles • Sutures may be removed all at a time or may be removed alternatively. Procedure The first part of procedure is the same as for suturing with stitch Except that instead of suturing the skin with thread and needle you would apply clips with the applier. Removal of Clips Technique Use aseptic technique Equipment • Sterile gauze • Sterile cotton balls • Sterile kidney dish • Sterile forceps 3 319 • Sterile clip removal forceps • Antiseptic solution (Savalon 1% and iodine) • Receiver • Benzene or ether • Adhesive tape or bandage Procedure Explain procedure to the patient and organize the needed equipment • Drape and position patient • Protect bedding with rubber sheet and its cover • Remove old dressing and discard.

Introduction: Rickets is a softening of bones in children due to deficiency or impaired metabolism of vitamin D, phosphorus or calcium,http://en. Rickets is among the most frequent childhood diseases in many developing countries. The predominant cause is a vitamin D deficiency, but lack of adequate calcium in the diet may also lead to rickets (cases of severe diarrhea and vomiting may be the cause of the deficiency). Although it can occur in adults, the majority of cases occur in children suffering from severe malnutrition b. Sunlight, especially ultraviolet light, lets human skin cells convert Vitamin D from an inactive to active state. Children ages 6 months to 24 months are at highest risk, because their bones are rapidly growing. Mother’s milk gives adequate calcium and vitamin-D so nutritional rickets develops once breast feeding is stopped.
