The nature of a burn may itself cause significant pain, which may be exacerbated by external factors such as dressing of the wound, wound debridement and surgical reconstruction. Selection of appropriate dressings is essential to minimise pain, particularly in cases where dressings need to be changed frequently, and to provide an optimum environment for wound healing. Although there are many products available for nurses to choose from, this article focuses only on the use of dressings with Safetac technology.
