Healthcare professionals use specialized wound care devices. It is a clinical technique to facilitate an efficient method of wound healing. Advanced treatment for wound care uses moisture therapy, which offers a moist micro-environment that promotes the process of natural healing. Film and foam dressings, hydrogels, alginates, and hydrocolloids are the materials used in wet wound care. In addition to maintaining a hydrated environment, this therapy also maintains the temperature constant, facilitates air supply, eliminates dead tissue, protects the site from exogenous infection, and relieves the pain associated with changes in dressing. In contrast to conventional wound care products, advanced wound care products have a higher absorption ability, such as gauze, sponge, plaster, and wadding, which is necessary to avoid wound infiltration. They also allow the exchange of oxygen and block the entry of microbes into the wounds at the same time, maintain moisture, and help build new tissue tissues.
