Hypovolemic Shock

Q) Which of the following is the correct physiological change during hypovolemic shock?

A)Increased cardiac output.

B)Decreased vascular resistance.

C)Decreased venous pressure.

D)Increased venous saturation.

Healing by Primary Intention

Q)What is the false regarding the healing by  primary intention?

A)Wound edges opposed.

B)Normal healing.

C)Usually done for dirty wounds

D)Minimal scar.


Primary intention,

Healing by primary intention is also known as healing by the first intention this occurs when there is an opposition of the wound edges

Secondary Intention

Healing occurs when the wound edges are not opposed immediately, which may be necessary for contaminated or untidy wounds.

Primary intention,

  • Would edges opposed
  • Normal healing.
  • Minimal scar.

Secondary intention,

  • Would leave open.
  • Heals by granulation, contraction and epithelialisation.
  • Increased inflammation and proliferation.
  • Poor scar.
