Only in the last thirty to fi fty years have large number of increasing complex products been developed specifically for application to open wounds of all types. These new dressings vary widely in composition and construction and, as a result, new families of performance-based test methods and specifications have been developed in order in order to characterise their performance. Key words: wound dressings, wound management, fluid handling, hydrocolloids. 1 Introduction The use of materials to cover or treat wounds stretches back into antiquity but the use of standards and specifications to characterise these materials is relatively new.
