Japan Market Report for Wound Dressings - MedCore

The stages in wound healing are coagulation, inflammation, proliferation and epithelization. In traditional, dry wound healing, a scab forms while these processes occur underneath the hardened, protective layer. The theory of moist wound care dictates that healing is greatly improved in an optimized moist environment. Moist dressings regulate wound healing, specifically by controlling moisture levels. Cell growth, proliferation and migration occur at a faster rate, especially when a wound cannot close due to abnormalities in the body’s physiological processes. Moist wound dressings can play an important role in facilitating the body’s natural healing processes. When an adequate amount of wound fluid is in contact with necrotic tissue, the body’s enzymes can re-hydrate and liquefy these hardened tissues in a process called autolytic debridement. The wound cannot be too wet, however, as this will cause tissue to soften and become weak, otherwise known as maceration. Antimicrobial dressings have two important roles in the healthcare setting: the elimination of microorganisms and existing infections, and the prevention of biofilm development and nosocomial infections. Facility acquired infections are some of the most dangerous events that can occur in a patient, and treating them is very costly to the healthcare system. Drug resistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) cause infections that are difficult to treat and can be fatal, especially for those with weakened immune systems and the elderly. These patients are also more likely to have chronic wounds such as diabetic and venous ulcers. Chronic wounds often fail to heal, not only due to lack of nutrition and vascularization, but also due to excessive bioburden and infection. These factors make antimicrobial wound dressings especially useful as a treatment or preventative measure on patients with high risk of infection. Traditional wound dressings are categorized as passive wound dressings, which provide cover over the wound. These wound healing practices emphasize a dry wound bed and the importance of the formation of a scab. Dressings are used to cover and protect the wound, to absorb exudate and to allow evaporation through the dressing in order to keep the wound dry. When the wound forms a protective, hardened scab, the body’s natural healing process occurs more effectively underneath. Traditional wound care products are comprised mostly of gauze-based dressings in woven and non-woven sponge formats, cotton, bandages and tapes.
