How to choose a medical wound dressing for wound care

As a trusted and leading medical tape factory, we believe that wound care is a very important process, so we should choose the appropriate dressing according to the wound condition, so as to make it heal better. Firstly, we need to choose the appropriate dressing according to the wound size. Secondly, we need to choose the type of filling dressing according to the depth of the wound. Thirdly, we need to give negative-pressure drainage or pressure dressing based on the local conditions of the wound. Lastly, we need to choose the sticky strength of the dressing according to the skin condition surrounding the wound.

In addition, the selection of medical wound dressings should also consider: the amount of exudation, the anatomical site of the wound, the amount of necrotic tissue, whether the wound is infected, whether there is dead space or sinus. And when we choose medical wound dressings, we must meet the biological needs; meet the needs of patients, such as accelerated healing, painless dressing changes, pain relief and reduce the number of dressing changes; meet the needs of medical staff and managers, such as reducing the work of changing dressings quantity, easy operation, easy debridement, beneficial to healing, easy to observe, easy to store, good safety.
