Wounds – From Physiology to Wound Dressing: Requirements Too High

Dtsch Arztebl Int 2008; 105(31-32): 557. DOI: 10.3238/arztebl.2008.0557d

LNSLNS I am surprised that the authors - without evidence based data - set such a high standard for "Planning and performance of dressing change" in Box 2 by demanding the use of a sterile underlay, sterile compresses and sterile disposable gloves – why not normal disposable gloves? Dressing changes can no longer be performed economically under these conditions in general medical practice.
