Abstract

The wound dressings market in South Africa follows the worldwide growth of products, and healthcare practitioners must acquire knowledge of the basics of wound healing and wound bed preparation for a cost-effective indication of those products. Based on the Wound Bed Preparation (WBP) paradigm, the author suggests a framework comprising most of the products in the basic classification, which has been updated yearly for the Wound Healing Association of Southern Africa (WHASA).
