Keywords: foam dressings


The clinical evaluation team of the UK National Health Service (NHS) compiled a report, which provided a clinical assessment of the usability and requirements of foam dressings. This was done by evaluating the packaging, opening, clinical use and disposal of various brands of foam dressings available to the NHS from the national procurement provider. The report aims to provide guidance on product selection to clinicians by highlighting the properties and functions of the various products, without providing a universal determination on the clinical efficacy of a particular product.
