Authors' recomendations: - The medical prescription (if necessary) of a given type of dressing should be as specific as possible. - When applying a dressing it is essential to follow strict rules of hygiene: washing hands, cleaning the wound, etc. These play a vital role in the prevention of infection. - Different primary dressings should not be used together on the same wound (except when activated charcoal dressings are used).
