question 1 of 3

A severe burn compromises the ability of blood vessels to keep their contents within the vessel walls as a result of physical and chemical trauma as well as the subsequent inflammation, which further damages vessel walls and releases molecules that cause the remaining intact vessels to become more porous. What would you most likely expect in a severe burn patient based on what you learned in this lesson?

About This Quiz & Worksheet

This quiz/worksheet combo is designed to assess your knowledge of terms used to describe conditions relating to low and high levels of certain proteins in the body and symptoms of these conditions.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments you'll be tested on:

  • Condition that might arise when inflammation leads to damaged and porous blood vessels
  • How hypoalbumininemia may occur
  • The condition resulting from liver damage
  • How to distinguish between the two types of hemolysis
  • What total protein refers to

Skills Practiced

This worksheet and quiz will allow you to test the following skills:

  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related lesson on protein levels in the blood and urine
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can accurately define main terms, such as hypoalbuminemia
  • Distinguishing differences - compare and contrast topics from the lesson, such as hypoalbuminemia and hyperalbuminemia
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about the causes of hypoalbuminemia

Additional Learning
