Research online put in dressing changes, Ulcers, From experience I know what we used but from studying they don't really tell you besides Wet to dry dressing changes maybe in the Skills book we had in nursing school It might go into depth. Sorry if this wasn't much help. Best Wishes!

Just about any kind of question can be answered with an internet search. Or go to a medical library and look up wound care in one of the medical reference books that should be available.

was hydrocolloidal dressing a choice,,,because i have read that it is used to promote wound healing,,im sorry if its wrong,,,not too sure myself.....
