Abstract

In this chapter, we have reviewed the technological advances in the development of interactive wound dressings. Since the time when the value of a moist wound environment in wound healing process was recognised, the primary purpose of dressings has changed from reducing moisture to maintaining moisture. The balance of moisture is critical to healing and this principle has been the driving force in the development of products that are currently available, such as hydrogels, hydrocolloids, alginates, and foams and films. Many interactive dressings work actively with wound properties, such as wound exudate, tissues, cells and some growth factors and, in addition to maintaining moisture, enhance healing process. We have provided suggestions on how to select the most appropriate interactive dressing product and discussed the latest studies and reviews on the effectiveness of selected products in wound management.
