The surgeon has planned tangential excision of eschar on a severely burned patient. How would the nurse explain this procedure to the patient's family? (Select all that apply.)
1. "Your loved one is too unstable for the other option, which is fascial excision."
2. "This procedure can result in blood loss, so we may need to transfuse."
3. "The cosmetic results of this procedure are better than those of the alternatives."
4. "This procedure will be done under anesthesia in the operating room."
5. "This is a form of biological debridement."

The answer is 2, 3, 4
Rationales:
1. Fascial excision is typically quicker and is used when patients cannot tolerate the stress of tangential excision.
2. Tangential excision can result in significant blood loss.
3. Tangential excision has a better cosmetic result than facial excision.
4. Surgical debridement is done under anesthesia in the OR.
5. Biological debridement is the use of maggot therapy. Tangential excision is surgical debridement.
