Punder, R. Amorphous Hydrogel Dressings in Wound Management. Journal of Community Nursing 2001; 15: 6:43-46

This is the third in a series of articles examining the role of a variety of wound care products used in clinical practice. This article will examine the use of amorphous hydrogels that are widely used in practice to debride necrotic and sloughy wounds, and discuss some of the research that has been undertaken in this area. The hydrogel dressings fulfil many of the characteristics of an ideal dressing as they provide a moist environment, are non-adherent and can be removed from the wound without causing trauma, are safe to use, free from particulate contaminants and are available in the hospital and community settings
