What is a sacral wound dressing?
To promote healing and prevent infection, sacral wounds require specialized dressings that can protect the wound and provide the necessary support and moisture to aid in the healing process. There are many different types of dressings available for sacral wounds, each with its own unique characteristics and benefits.
Hydrocolloid Dressings: These dressings are made of a gel-like substance that is able to absorb wound exudate (fluid) and promote the growth of healthy tissue.
Foam dressings: These are made of a porous material that is able to absorb wound exudate and provide a moist healing environment.
