Help with PICO question please

  1. This is the topic for my PICO question:
    Advantages/Disadvantages of negative pressure wound therapy (or other types of therapy) or various treatments on wound healing

    This is what I have so far:
    In patients with pressure ulcers (p) what is the effect of pressure wound therapy (I) as compared with_______ (c) on wound healing (o)

    What would I put for the C? Do I just choose a random type of wound healing therapy to compare it to? I think I have to be more specific than just "various treatments"

    I'd choose the most common type of dressing. When a patient is not on a wound vac, the most common dressing you will see ordered is a wet-to-dry gauze dressing.
