The results, shown in Fig. 1, show a marked increase in the permeability of one product but not the other. This change in permeability has important implications for the relative fluid-handling properties of the dressings when applied to heavily exuding wounds. 1 Effect of inversion of the test chamber after 6 h on the moisture vapour transmission rate of two film-backed dressings. 5 Shortcomings of existing test methods Although methods described thus far facilitate comparisons of the fluidhandling properties of similar products within specific groups and provide useful quality control tests to confi rm consistency of production, they do not permit direct comparisons between different groups of dressings such as alginates and hydrocolloids.

Iron is required to transport oxygen. Other minerals like zinc and copper are important for enzyme systems and immune systems. Zinc deficiency contributes to disruption in granulation tissue formation. Underlying diseases Diabetes, arthritis, renal disease, heart disease, cancer, immune disorder, lung disease blood disorders and surgery all affect the process of wound healing. Medication Anti-inflammatory, cytotoxic, immunosuppressive and anticoagulant drugs all reduce healing rates by interrupting cell division or the clotting process.
