Wound Types, Stages of Healing, & Treatments

Wound: from the Old English word, wund

Wound healing consists of an orderly progression of events that reestablish the integrity of the damaged tissue. The initial wound touches off a series of programmed, separate yet interdependent responses to the injury, including inflammation, epithelialization (growth of new skin), angiogenesis (blood vessel regeneration), and the accumulation of matrix, the cells necessary to heal the tissue. Many wounds pose no challenge to the body’s innate ability to heal; some wounds, however, may not heal easily either because of the severity of the wounds themselves or because of the poor state of health of the individual. The Life Extension Foundation has designed this protocol to support and enhance the healing of internal and external wounds that fall into this category. (For related information on how to support the body’s ability to heal and rebuild itself, refer to the Catabolic Wasting and Muscle Building protocols.) Any wound that does not heal should be examined by a healthcare professional because it might be infected, might reflect an underlying disease such as diabetes, or might be a serious wound requiring medical treatment. Always inform your healthcare provider of all supplements and treatments you are using.

Types of Wounds

Although all wounds follow roughly the same healing process, there are many different causes of wounds. Partial-thickness wounds penetrate the outer layers of the skin (the epidermis and the superficial dermis) and heal by regeneration of epithelial tissue (skin). Full-thickness wounds involve a loss of dermis (deeper layers of skin and fat) and of deep tissue, as well as disruption of the blood vessels; they heal by producing a scar. Wounds are classified by stage. Stage I wounds are characterized by redness or discoloration, warmth, and swelling or hardness. Stage II wounds partially penetrate the skin. Stage III describes full-thickness wounds that do not penetrate the tough white membrane (fascia) separating the skin and fat from the deeper tissues. Stage IV wounds involve damage to muscle or bone and undermining of adjacent tissue. They may also involve the sinus tracts (red streaks indicating infected lymph vessels).

One medical term for a wound is an ulcer. An ulcer is an open sore on the skin (or a mucous membrane) that causes destruction of surface tissue. An ulcer can be shallow or deep and crater-shaped. Ulcers are usually inflamed and painful.

Okay, today is my brother’s birthday~!

He is coming home early from school because of a severe sinus headache, so I am being kicked off.

Now for those wondering why he is in school when it is still considered spring break for most people, and the reason for that is….

Anonymous asked: Which I can't understand is why you do not swear in french, I remember The Merovingio from Matrix saying that swear in french was like clean your butt with silk, and I will love to know some french swearings...

stupidoomdoodles:

ok sure LET’S MAKE THIS THE GRAND FRENCH SWEARING MASTERPOST SHALL WE

be careful, the english translations really don’t translate how horribly vulgar/aggressive these are

i kinda like “bordel de merde” (it’s kind of impossible to translate but i guess “for shit’s sake” is the best i can come up with) and “bites à cul” (“dicks to butts” I DONT KNOW WHY I LOVE IT SO MUCH I JUST DO). also my favourite insult is “Tu sais combien de temps ta mère met pour chier? 9 mois”  (“Do you know how long your mother takes to take a shit ? 9 months”). “Nique ta mère” (“fuck your mother”) is also deliciously old school and i love it. and “nique ta race” (“fuck your race”) is absolutely horrible i love it too

but my all time favorite is “futzlecker” which means “cunt-licker” in my native french/german dialect. it’s not exactly french but “lècheur de chatte/moule” (“cunt-licker” (chatte being a female cat and moule being a mussel, both vagina synonyms)) doesn’t sound as effective imo

hahaha XD well, if you want to be literal, “bordel de merde” is “shitty brothel” but no one uses bordel to mean brothel unless they’re specifically talking about prostitution, otherwise it’s a super common strong-ish word that indicates there is a mess and goddamn it now they have to sort it out. (“t’as vu ce bordel” is a rude way to say “did you see this mess”, bordel has come to mean mess more strongly than its original meaning.)

"Putain de bordel de merde" literally means "whore from a shitty brothel" but most people don’t even notice because separately they’re all used like "fuck" or "shit" and they just use it like a collection of random swears with nice explosive sounds for maximum exasperatedness.

What i find interesting is that generally we almost don’t swear by god/jesus/hell, it’s mostly about sex, defecation and people’s mothers.

I really love the antiquated “foutredieu” (seriously don’t use it if you’re not french, it’s from the middle ages or something and will stand out XD), foutre is a verb that is nowadays used to mean “to do” but to do it badly, or to not be doing something, like “j’en ai rien à foutre” means i don’t have anything to (fucking) do with it = i don’t give a shit, and “t’as rien foutu” means “you didn’t do jack shit!” (implied they should have.) But “foutre” used to mean “fuck” and Dieu is God, oh my, blaspheme.
