What are the 3 depths of a wound? Superficial, Partial thickness and full thickness
The epidermal layer of skin from friction, shearing or burning is? Superficial

This intension heals with little tissue loss when the edges are well approximated (closed) & little scaring occurs. A clean surgical incision heals like this. Primary Intention
When healing occurs and the egdes don't close and should not close because it's infected & the wound is left open. It fills with beefy red hranulations and heals slowly & is prone to infection. Secondary Intention
First the wound heals by 2ndary intension, if no edema or infection the wound is closed with sutchers. This creates less scarring than the 2ndary but more than primary intention Tertiary Intention
The stopping of bleeding, the blood vessels constrict, platlets go to the site & clump together & the clotting mechanism is activated to form a blood clot. Hemostasis
