Abstract

Today's clinicians face the daunting task of finding the best cost-effective and clinically appropriate solutions to ever complex wounds. The right combination of dressings help to maintain a moist environment, successfully manage exudate levels and reduce complications. This article seeks to explore the fundamental issues behind successful dressing choice and the new products that are becoming available for use as tools in the ongoing wound care initiative. In particular, the antimicrobial dressing Cutimed® Sorbact® used in conjunction with the exudate management properties of Cutimed® Siltec® and Cutisorb® Ultra by BSN medical will be examined with the commencement of three clinical evaluations.
