Abstract

This article presents the results of an international 2 stage Delphi survey carried out via e‐mail to achieve consensus as to the most effective postoperative wound management to prevent blistering and other complications. Seventeen prospective participants were invited to be members of the Delphi Panel of which 13 agreed to be involved. The panel suggested that an ideal wound dressing would conform easily to the wound, be easy to apply and remove, allow for swelling and minimise pain on removal. Participants were in agreement that the primary wound dressing should be left in situ for as long as possible, providing there was no excessive oozing or signs of infection. The authors recognise that the Delphi Panel was relatively compact; however, the study arguably provides some useful data that can be used to identify the consequences of wound blistering and important factors that need to be considered when choosing a wound dressing to prevent blistering.
