How should the skin be prepared for taping?

body part should be cleaned, dry, and free of hair before application hair should be removed with an electric razor or disposable razor check for cuts or abrasions, if there are some then they should be cleaned with normal saline and covered padding if needed to reduce friction spray adhesive spray and add pre-wrap if needed

increased permeability and pressure within the vessels forces a plasma exudate into the interstitial tissue

New cards
New cards

What are the four major points to remember for inflammation (0-6 days)

  • vasoconstriction promotes increased blood viscosity, reducing blood loss through bleeding

  • the platelets reaction initiates clotting and releases growth factors that attract reparative cells to the site

  • the coagulation cascade affects clot formation

  • the complement and kinin cascades provoke vasodilation and increase blood vessel wall permeability, facilitating, the k9i99iimigration of neutrophils and macrophages in plasma exudate to cleanse the site through phagocytosis
