Fry, M, M. A Framework for Wound Management. Nursing Standard 1993; 7: 28:29-32

This article looks into four of effectively the most commonly used wound dressing products: Intrasite, Kaltostat, Lyofoam and Granuflex. Their characteristics and uses are discussed, and a simple framework for choosing the appropriate dressing for individual wounds has been complied. The author concludes that there is no ‘ideal' dressing which can be used at all the stages of the wound healing process.
