Hydrocolloid wound dressing

Summary Information: Hydrocolloid wound dressing

Hydrocolloid wound dressing: A hydrocolloid wound dressing is a mixture of gelling agents (e.g. carboxymethylcellulose, gelatin and pectin) that is applied to a wound. The hydrocolloid absorbs the fluid draining from the wound, forming a gel-like material that maintains a moist healing environment while keeping out foreign substances. Hydrocolloid dressings are used for many different kinds of wounds that drain little to large amounts of fluid.
