They are useful in 14 Advanced textiles for wound care medium to heavily exuding wounds and are also good for bleeding wounds. Examples include Kaltostat, Sorbsan and Algisite. Hydrogels Hydrogels have a high water content which creates a moist wound surface and helps in the debridement of wounds by hydration and promotion of autolysis. As absorption of exudate is poor, they can cause maceration. 31 Hydrocolloids Hydrocolloids are composed of a matrix of cellulose and other gel-forming agents, including gelatin and pectin.

Their proscriptive and inflexible nature also prevents or delays the introduction of new and more innovative products which may be structurally different from the standard materials. Recognising these limitations, in the early 1990s, the Surgical Dressings Manufacturing Association (SDMA) set up a series of working groups, comprising technical staff from the industry and the NHS, to devise a new family of performance-based test methods and specifications. These were based on a number of instances upon work that had been pioneered within the Surgical Materials Testing Laboratory (SMTL), an NHS facility that specialised in testing wound dressings and other medical disposables for the Testing dressings and wound management materials 23 NHS in Wales.
