Performance standards, which describe one or more key aspects of the function of a dressing. • Safety standards, designed to ensure that a product, when used appropriately, is unlikely to adversely affect the health or wellbeing of the individual to whom it is applied. 1 The development of dressings For centuries mankind had little option but to apply readily available natural substances to his wounds to staunch bleeding, absorb exudate or promote healing. Initially, these would have consisted of simple materials such as honey, animal oils or fat, cobwebs, mud, leaves, moss or animal dung applied in the crude form in which they were found, but later these and other ‘raw materials’ began to be combined together, either to make them easier to handle, or to improve their clinical effectiveness.

Interactive dressings include hydrocolloids, hydrogels, alginates and foams. An ideal dressing should maintain a moist environment at the wound interface and act as a barrier to micro-organisms. Commonly available dressings include. Alginate These dressings are highly absorbent and are composed of calcium and sodium salts of alginic acid, obtained from seaweed. They are useful in © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited 14 Advanced textiles for wound care medium to heavily exuding wounds and are also good for bleeding wounds.

10 Once the rubber had set, the dressing was removed from the former containing the silicone block by means of a tensiometer to record the applied force, using a 180° peel. Although no absolute values could be applied as limits, the test system was used to rank products in order of their adherence potential. In a later modification to this test, an aqueous solution of gelatine was used to replace the silicone as this more closely represents the in vivo situation. This procedure is still used as a non-official ‘in-house’ test.
