early signs of pressure sites are redness that doesnt fade rapidly, heat and/or swelling when pressure is relieved. there may be callous formation that has flaky skin around it and a "mushy" feeling when surrounding skin is palpitated. blisterlike eruptions can develop and become a profound wound if pressure relief techniques are not used conscientiously. Then you better study real hard because your patients are relying on you to help them. Hope you pass your test.

Changes in what? The human body? A man made structure?
What sort of pressure?
Traumatic high-momentum pressure like a car crash?
Are we talking about damage to the car or damage to the occupants?
Ambient air pressure? Sudden changes, including blast waves from explosives, can damage eardrums and whole bodies.
And may cause your zeppelin to crash.
So fasten your seatbelts kids!
