Transcript of Homeostatic Imbalances Of Skin

Homeostatic Imbalances

Fungal infection
athletes foot, ring worm, yeast infection
Bacterial infection
Impetigo, cysts, boils, carbuncles, zits
Viral infections
Cold sores, pox, hand foot & mouth disease

Infections & Allergies
Tissue damage and cell death caused by heat, electricity, UV radiation, or chemicals
Associated dangers
Electrolyte imbalance
Circulatory shock
Rule of nines
Way to determine the extent of burns
Body is divided into 11 areas for quick estimation
Each area represents about 9%
Severity of Burns
First-degree burns
Only epidermis is damaged
Skin is red and swollen
Second degree burns
Epidermis and upper dermis are damaged
Skin is red with blisters
Third-degree burns
Destroys entire skin layer
Burn is gray-white or black
Burns are considered critical if:
Over 25% of body has second degree burns
Over 10% of the body has third degree burns
There are third degree burns of the face, hands, or feet

Skin Cancer
Cancer – abnormal cell mass
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer
Two stages
Does not spread (encapsulated)
Metastasized (moves) to other parts of the body
Skin Cancer Types
Basal cell carcinoma
Least malignant
Most common type
Arises from statum basale
Squamous cell carcinoma
Arises from stratum spinosum
Metastasizes to lymph nodes
Early removal allows a good chance of cure
Malignant melanoma
Most deadly of skin cancers
Cancer of melanocytes
Metastasizes rapidly to lymph and blood vessels
Detection uses ABCD rule
A = Asymmetry
Two sides of pigmented mole do not match
B = Border irregularity
Borders of mole are not smooth
C = Color
Different colors in pigmented area
D = Diameter
Spot is larger than 6 mm in diameter
chicken pox
Not cancer, absence of melanin
Contact dermatitis
Exposures cause allergic reaction
Parasitic infection
fleas, ticks, mosquitos, may cause malaria, lyme disease, scabies
un-known, sun exposure, chemicals, etc...
Triggered by trauma, infection, stress
cyanosis skin turns blue due to lack of oxygen
vitaligo - loss of pigment in the skin
flushing - blood fills the capillaries in the epidermis, making the skin appear more red

scar after 5 months
Healing Process:
Clotting phase
clots form to stop bleeding and cells begin mitosis
Inflammation phase
immune cells kill bacteria, remove damaged tissue and release hormones that encourage new growth
Proliferative phase
new collagen fills the defect left by an open wound
Maturation phase
a scar made of collagen forms over the next year
K.E. (2018) softball hematoma
Impetigo/infantigo (MRSA – Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
