Notice the posture discount 50 mg tofranil amex, body habitus discount 75mg tofranil free shipping, obvious respiratory status purchase tofranil 50 mg with mastercard, and whether the patient is guarding or protecting any area of the skin. The general survey should provide an indication of the patient’s overall skin condition, including color, visible lesions, mois- ture, and perspiration. As each section of skin is inspected and palpated, there are basic considerations. These include the skin’s color, moisture, texture, turgor, and any lesions. Color Color is highly variable among individuals of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Color vari- ation is even found among an individual’s own various body regions, depending on several factors, including general exposure to the elements. For instance, coloring is typically darker in exposed areas and calluses may be slightly darkened or have a yellow hue. Some patients develop a vascular flush over their face, neck, chest, and extremity flexor surfaces when they are exposed to warm environments or emotional disturbances. Changes in color can also indicate a systemic disorder. Cyanosis, caused by decreased oxyhemoglobin binding, may indicate pulmonary or heart disease, a hemoglobin abnor- mality, or merely that the patient is cold. Observe for cyanosis in the nail beds, lips, and oral mucosa. Jaundice indicates an elevation in bilirubin and often is evident in the sclera and mucous membranes before obvious in the skin. Pallor can indicate decreased circula- tion to an area or a decrease in hemoglobin. Like cyanosis, pallor is frequently first noticed in the face, conjunctiva, oral mucosa, and/or nail beds. Redness of the skin may indicate a generalized problem associated with a fever or localized problems, such as sunburn, infec- tion, or allergic response. Table 2-2 depicts a number of alterations in coloring that are associated with specific conditions. Temperature As each area is observed for visible changes, palpation helps to further explore the findings. Through palpation, alterations in temperature, moisture, texture, and turgor are detected and assessed. The temperature of the skin is best assessed by the dorsal aspects of the hand and fingers. Several situations increase skin temperature, including increased blood flow to the skin or underlying structures; thermal or chemical burns; local infections; and general- ized, systemic infections and fever. Decreased skin temperature may occur as a result of ath- erosclerosis and shock. Skin is typically more dry during winter months and more moist in the warm months. Dehydration, myxedema, and chronic nephritis can all cause skin to be dry. Older patients tend to have drier skin than those who are young. Texture The texture of the skin is an important consideration. Coarseness may be a sign of chronic or acute irritation, as well as hypothyroidism. Texture that is extremely fine or smooth may indicate hyperthyroidism. Turgor Finally, skin turgor and elasticity are indications of several variables, including the level of hydration and aging. Some disorders, such as scleroderma, are associated with increases in skin turgor. The skin should feel resilient, move easily, and return to place quickly after a fold is lifted.
