McIntosh, Caroline (2007) Are hydrocolloid dressings suitable for diabetic foot ulcers? Wound Essentials, 2. pp. 170-172.

Hydrocolloids are a particular
category of wound dressings
that are widely used in clinical
practice to manage a number
of different wound types (Figure
1). Pudner (2001) advises that
they should be used for necrotic
or sloughy wounds to promote
wound debridement as their
occlusive nature facilitates
autolysis (the body’s natural
process of breaking down dead
or devitalised tissue).
