Dimensions of dressing were too small for testing. 1 Bacterial barrier properties Wounds of all types represent a potential source of cross-infection, particularly if they are infected with antibiotic resistant organisms such as MRSA. It is therefore important to ensure that wounds, in so far as is possible, are isolated from the environment to prevent the ingress or egress of pathogenic micro-organisms. Many dressings therefore consist of (or include in their construction) a layer which prevents the transmission of micro-organisms into or out of a wound.

Examples include sheets such as Alione, Combiderm and Duoderm; paste such as GranuGel; and hydrofibre such as Aquacel and Versiva. 31 Semipermeable fi lms Semipermeable dressings are good for low to medium exuding wounds. Examples include Opsite, Flexiguard, Tegaderm, Melfilm and Bioclusive. Foam dressings Foam dressings are useful for moderately exudating wounds as they prevent ‘strike through’ of exudate to the wound surface. They also provide cushion and support to the wound. Examples include Allevyn, Lyofoam, Tielle plus and Biatin Adhesive.
