- by nursgirl Mar 5, '11Just a quick question because I cannot find any info on this anywhere.. is it possible that a deep tissue injury (DTI) could be blanchable? HELP!
Thanks in advance =)
- Mar 6, '11 by nursgirlthanks for the reply! I did see that website when I was googling.. but it doesn't specifically say whether it might blanch.. I would think the answer is no but I need to be sure... long story.. LOL

- Mar 6, '11 by ckh23Think about blanching itself. What is blanching? You put pressure that displaces the blood and when you let go the blood rushes back. With a DTI the skin is already discolored and unblanchable.
