  • When health care providers are seeking the “ideal dressing”, the following questions should be considered:- Does the dressing protect from secondary infection?- Does it provide a moist wound environment?- Does it provide thermal insulation?- Can it be removed without causing trauma to the skin?- Does the dressing remove/absorb drainage and debris?- Is it free from particulates and toxic products?

    3. 3. Untidy wound Tidy wound which heal themselves by primary intensin Othervise they undergo  Scars  Contractures  Severe infections Tidy wound <6hrs.. Primarily closed or delayed primary closure after 3-5 days …untidy wound dealt with secondary closure, culture sensitivty done, antibitics and dressing

    10. 10. Need to be compatible with the wound:  May be hydrating or absorptive  Promote/maintain moist, healing environment  Provide insulation  Impermeable to microrganisms  Atraumatic to the wound/periwound area  Cost effective  In conventional terms: dry, or wet  In technical terms we have:
    11. 11.  Indications:  Superficial and full thickness wounds  Skin grafts, donor sites, burns, skin tears  Under compression for ulcers  Contraindications:  Dry wounds  Examples: Mepilex (Border), Allevyn (Plus Adhesive), Polymem, Biatain
    12. 12.  Indications:  Minor injuries (abrasions)  Post-op dressing over sutures  IV sites  Contraindications:  High exudate wounds  Fragile skin  Examples: Tegaderm, Opsite
    13. 13.  Indications:  Highly exuding wounds  Infected wounds (change daily)  Contraindications:  Dry wounds or wound with eschar  Aquacel, Melgisorb, Seasorb, Kaltostat

    17. 17.  Chemically inert, adverse effects rare  Designed to be removed without trauma or pain  Protect friable or newly healed tissue from injury  Less trauma to periwound  Examples: Mepilex, Allevyn Gentle

    20. 20.  Antimicrobial action through (+) silver ion  Effective when in contact with wound fluid  Consider:  Kill rate AND sustained release rate  Testing Methods: Simulated wound fluid, saline  Delivery methods: foams, gels, alginates, hydrofibers, creams  (SSD - approved for burns, only)
    21. 21.  Hydrogen peroxide  Acetic acid  Effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa  Diguanides (Chlorhexidine)  Sodium hypochlorite (Dakin’s)  Not recommended unless suitable are unavailable  Povidone Iodine
    22. 22. Usually Type I bovine or avian or type III porcine collagen Indications:   Partial & full thickness wounds Minimal to moderate drainage  Contraindications:    Eschar covered Full thickness burns Sensitivity to contents
    23. 23. Based on amount of drainage and presence of infection  Infected wounds need to be monitored daily  Heavily draining wounds may need to be changed 2-3 times a day  As drainage decreases, increase time between dressing changes
