Studies have shown that wounds heal faster when given a moist environment. One way to support this moisture balance and encourage optimal healing is to choose the correct topical dressing based on the amount of drainage coming from the wound.
Let’s face it, dressing selection can be overwhelming for clinicians because of the plethora of products that are in the wound care market space. If only there were a multifunctional smart-dressing that could be used on every wound etiology. It would make managing wounds much easier. Practical knowledge of dressing categories, functionality, appropriateness, and reimbursement is key in dressing selection.
