Moist wound healing principles are being applied to almost every wound these days - from surgical sites, to cuts and scrapes. The cells that are involved in healing can't travel over dry areas. So, for the cells to function properly, they must be in a moist environment. If you look at a "scab" it is a dry covering. Underneath that "scab" a flurry of activity is going on in a moist environment. With the new dressings we have available, we try to create a moist environment to promote more rapid healing. This works with wounds that are draining heavily (we use dressings that absorb excess moisture) and dry wounds (we use dressings that will add moisture, or maintain a moist environment. So, to answer your question - moist wound healing is definitely the way to try and heal a wound.

Moist wound dressings do work, tkae it from me. I had a gaping wound about 2 inches long as the result if a surgical incision. Within two weeks of Opsite post op [smith-nephew] it was down to 1inch but still with a small amount of exudate. The community health nurse here in Newfoundland switched to Aquacel dresing[convtec][I don't know the smith-nephew equivalent]Now ther is only a trace of exudate and the wound is all but healed.Keep in mind that my incision wound was in a cast for eight weeks and was infected when tha cast was removed, George

I also have heatd that moist wound dressing is the best for healing wounds with little or no drainage. Is this true and what kind of moist dressing needs to be used for best results?
