Commonly available dressings include. Alginate These dressings are highly absorbent and are composed of calcium and sodium salts of alginic acid, obtained from seaweed. They are useful in © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited 14 Advanced textiles for wound care medium to heavily exuding wounds and are also good for bleeding wounds. Examples include Kaltostat, Sorbsan and Algisite. Hydrogels Hydrogels have a high water content which creates a moist wound surface and helps in the debridement of wounds by hydration and promotion of autolysis.

The dressing under examination is placed on a simple wound model, which usually consists of a metal or acrylic plate with a small hole or depression in the centre. A weight is then applied to the back of the dressing to simulate the pressure applied by a bandage and test fluid is applied to the dressing through the plate by means of a peristaltic pump or syringe driver. In some test systems, the fluid is not actively pumped into the dressing but is absorbed by the dressing itself from some form of constant head apparatus.

The disruption to the structure of the test sample caused © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited 30 Advanced textiles for wound care by the spikes cast doubt on the validity of this method and so it was abandoned. Many of the other test systems developed previously also suffered from a series of disadvantages: • • • • • • • They can be difficult to automate and therefore may not always be suitable for running unattended over extended periods. The application of a weight and/or strike-through detector on the back of the dressing prevents the loss of moisture vapour, an important mechanism by which some dressings cope with exudate production.
