Card Set Information
A form of energy that produces light, heat, magnetic, & chemical charges.
The movement of electricity along a path called a conductor.
The technical name for an electrically powered appliance.
A material that allows electricity to flow through it easily.
A material that does not allow the flow of electric current.
A unit of electric strength.
A unit of electric pressure.
A unit of electric resistance.
A measure of how much electrical energy is being used.
The application of electrical currents during treatments to the skin.
What is a Direct Current?
(DC), in which electrons move at an even rate & flow in only one direction.
What is Alternating Current?
(AC), in which electrons flow first in one direction & then the other.
What is a Converter?
I device used to change direct current into alternating current.
What is a Rectifier?
A device used to change alternating current into direct current.
Define the difference between o fuse & a curcuit breaker.
A device that contains a fine metal wire that allows current to flow through it.
A reusable device that breaks the flow of current when an overload occurs.
What should you do for Local Shock?
Immerse burn in cool water immediately & if severe, take the person to hospital or physician.
What should you do for General Shock?
This type of shock causes the heart to stop & muscles to convulse.
Break the current before touching the person, Dial 911, Start CPR, DO NOT STOP CPR until emergency team arrives.
Galvanic current is a (a)__(a)__ of low voltage & high (b)__.
a) Direct Current (DC)
The process of forcing an acid (+) or alkali (-) into the skin by applying current to the chemical.
Uses the negative pole (cathode) or electrode to force negatively charged (alkaline) solutions into the skin without breaking the skin.
Uses a positive pole (anode) or electrode to force positively charged (acidic) solutions into skin without breaking skin.
Faradic current is an (a)__(a)__ interrupted to produce a mechanical, non-chemical reaction. Faradic current stimulates (b)__ & (c)__ tissue.
a) Alternating Current (AC)
Sinusoidal current is an (a)__(a)__, interrupted to produce a mechanical effect, much like the faradic current that produces (b)__ contractions.
a) Alternating Current (AC)
Tesla, high frequency current, know as the "(a)__-(a)__" in an (b)__ current.
b) Alternating Current (AC)
What is Pyrolysis?
The chemical breakdown of the skin. (Ex. when you are burned & blister forms.)
Is an economical & long-lasting light source
. Can create "blue" or "cool" casts & can create hair coloring problems unless natural sunlight is available.
This kind of light is provided by an ordinary light bulb.
Normally producing redder tones & warmer casts in the objects light.
Sunlight is: (a)__% Infrared Rays, (b)__% Ultra Violet Rays, (c)__% Visible Rays.
a) 80% Infrared Rays
b) 80% Ultra Violet Rays
c) 40% Visible Rays
