Choosing a wound dressing is an important stage of any operative procedure and has implications for the timely healing of tissues. Factors such as prevention and management of infection, pain, blistering and moisture control necessitate a high level of appropriate consideration. This paper presents a critical review of the literature pertinent to these key factors and outlines the importance of a holistic assessment of the patient when selecting a dressing. In addition data are presented from a product evaluation of a new adhesive island dressing from HARTMANN GB.
