Abstract

The selection of an appropriate wound dressing should be based on an assessment of the wound and an understanding of properties of various wound dressings. Commonly used wound dressings can be categorized as moisture-retentive and antimicrobial-impregnated dressings, with subtypes of dressings in each category being appropriate in various clinical scenarios. The most appropriate dressing type may change as the wound heals.
