image Dressings

Dressings are designed to be in direct contact with wounds, historically made from materials such as cloth but modern dressings include fabric, films and sprays. Dressings can be impregnated with antiseptics and cut to required size. An ideal wound dressing is sterile, breathable, and conducive for a moist healing environment.
