The extracellular environment of the pressure ulcers greatly influences the healing process. Its significant interventions include protecting the wound and providing a physiologic environment by controling causative factors, providing systemic support and maintaining local treatments. Practically, the wound dressing is the hallmark of local treatment for pressure ulcers and also many useful dressing materials are now available for management of pressure ulcers. Open wound such as pressure ulcers require dressing that protect and maintain without allowing excessive fluid accumulation, macerated skin, and bacterial proliferation. The basic principle of the dressing must be considered each product has its advantages and disadvantages before one is selected. Ultimately the dressing should be focused on maximizing healing of pressure ulcers through infection control, safe autolytic debridement, clean and moist condition. All of them are a challenge for both the patient and the health care provider. A team approach with total involvement of the health care system and the necessary compliance of the patient will be the infrastructure for achieving better outcomes of care.
