Abstract

The correct balance of moisture in the wound healing environment has widely been accepted to increase the rate of wound healing and has resulted in the design of advanced moisture-retentive polymeric wound dressings. This chapter reviews various types of wound dressings currently used in clinics, and identifies design elements that promote optimal control of moisture in burns and chronic wounds. Polymer dressings for different wound types and different stages of wound healing are described with a focus on polymeric materials that give them their specific attributes.
