Wound dressings are divided into three classes, namely dressings that are active, passive, and interactive. The only protective feature of passive wound dressing products is that active wound dressings facilitate healing by maintaining a moist wound atmosphere. To improve wound healing, interactive dressings create a moist wound atmosphere and also communicate with wound bed components. Wound dressings need secondary dressing, such as hydrogels and alginate dressings, as they are permeable and non-occlusive. Multi-layer composite dressings are relatively costly and can be used for main and secondary wound dressing. To improve wound healing, interactive dressings create a moist wound atmosphere and also communicate with wound bed components. Wound dressings need secondary dressing, such as hydrogels and alginate dressings, as they are permeable and non-occlusive. Multi-layer composite dressings are relatively costly and can be used in the dressing of primary and secondary wounds.
