Class Summary - Today we finished out talking about skin disorders. We talked about the ABCDEs of A= Asymmetry, B=Border, C= Color, D = Diameter and E= Elevated. We then continued with talking about Kaposi’s sarcoma and warts. Then we started talking about wound healing. We talked about 3 different phases of wound healing; the inflammatory phase (fluids enter wound to create a scab and fight infection), the proliferative phase (where tissues enter and cell growth accelerates) and the remodeling phase which is scar formation and healing. We will talk about burns and will finish tomorrow.
