Abstract The concept of moist wound healing has been examined and gradually accepted by wound care clinicians during the last 40 years, and has led to the development of hundreds of dressings that support a moist wound environment. This article discusses the characteristics of an ideal dressing in an effort to assist clinicians in making appropriate dressing choices from common categories, including transparent films, hydrocolloids, foams, absorptive wound fillers, hydrogels, collagens, and gauzes. Reimbursement issues are also discussed.
