Regenerative wound dressings foster healing

Local environment of chronic wounds under synthetic dressings. Topical antioxidants Effect of topical vitamin E, which is a major lipid soluble antioxidant, on wound healing and scar formation remains inconclusive as some reports claim it is valuable for speeding wound healing and improving outcome of scars and other studies have shown that it has no effect.

The value of these gauze dressings is now questionable because of the pain and damage that they cause to the neo-epithelium during removal. They create a moist environment and provide thermal insulation to the wound.

Comparing hydrocolloid dressings in management of exuding wounds. However, even if a certain dressing is expensive but promotes wound healing rapidly leading to the desired clinical results, it can be judged to be cost effective. Another outcome of our research was that a powered mattress system may not be appropriate for most sensate and semi-ambulatory patients.

Another down side of the treatment is their tendency to produce malodorous exudates, which can be mistaken for infection. The plethora of wound care products in the market has resulted in practitioner's using a combination of products, which may make the treatment very expensive. Healing chronic wound s.

They have a gentle yet effective debriding and desloughing action by rehydrating necrotic tissue and removing it without damaging healthy tissue and absorbing slough and exudates.
