Recommended Conferences for Hydrogel dressings

Hydrogel dressings

As per available reports about 25 Relevant Journals, 36 Conferences, 18 Workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to hydrogel dressings and about 800 articles are being published on hydrogel dressings.

Hydrogel dressings are sheets or amorphous gels that have 20-90% water. Hydrogel dressings require a second dressing to maintain moisture and promote wound healing. Hydrogel dressings offer cooling effects to relieve pain and discomfort. Hydrogel dressing is best for wounds with light drainage. Brand names of hydrogel dressings include Tegagel, DuoDerm Hydroactive Wound Gel, and Curasol Hydrogel Saturated Dressing. Some have starch copolymers that absorb small amounts of exudate, some products are dehydrated gels that offer more absorption, nonadhesive and gas permeable.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance:

Hydrogel dressings are used for dressing painful wounds, dry to minimally exudating wounds, partial-thickness, and wounds: sheet gel, full thickness wounds: amorphous gel, granular or necrotic wounds, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, arterial ulcers (do not moisten an arterial ulcer if no healing potential - leave dry) and laser wounds. Advantages of hydrogel dressings are autolysis, conforms to wound bed, moist environment, nonadhesive, pain reduction, soothing, no trauma upon removal and semitransparent. Disadvantages of hydrogel dressings are potential to macerate surrounding skin, may require secondary dressing, some products may dehydrate wound and may be difficult to retain in wounds.

Historically, a dressing was usually a piece of material, sometimes cloth, but the use of cobwebs, dung, leaves and honey has also been described. However, modern dressings include gauze (which may be impregnated with an agent designed to help sterility or to speed healing), films, gels, foams, hydrocolloids, alginates, hydrogels and polysaccharide pastes, granules and beads. Many gauze dressings have a layer of nonstick film over the absorbent gauze to prevent the wound from adhering to the dressing. Dressings can be impregnated with antiseptic chemicals, as in boracic lint or where medicinal castor oil was used in the first surgical dressings. Bioelectric dressings such as Procellera can be effective in attacking certain antibiotic-resistant bacteria and speeding up the healing process.

In the 1960s, George Winter published his controversial research on moist healing. Previously, the accepted wisdom was that to prevent infection of a wound, the wound should be kept as dry as possible. Winter demonstrated that wounds kept moist healed faster than those exposed to the air or covered with traditional dressings.

Market Analysis:

A new report has been published by Transparency Market Research, titled “Wound Dressings Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020”. TMR, a market intelligence company based in the U.S., says in its report that the global wound dressing market was estimated at US$7.53 billion in 2013. Growing at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2014 to 2020, it is predicted to reach US$10.16 billion in 2020.The TMR report states that wound management is an exceptionally complex as well as delicate process that comprises cellular processes for healing wounds and for tissue repair. Modern science has discovered that for appropriate growth of underlying endoderm cells, proper aeration and moisture is essential. This, along with the benefit of wound dressings in faster wound healing, has also helped in decreasing discomfort of patients to a large extent.
