Wound experts worldwide are simplifying their formularies to produce a class of innovative multifunctional wound care dressings. PolyMem (Ferris Mfg. Corp.) is a multifunctional dressing that can replace common wound care products such as alginates, hydrogels, hydrocolloids and foams. The polymeric membrane dressing can be used as a primary or secondary dressing and also as a combination to support the entire healing process. This study demonstrates the efficacy of polymeric membrane dressings in chronic wound healing by simple randomisation. The study took place in an outpatient setting at the Wound Care Unit at Kuala Lumpur Hospital (WCUHKL) in Malaysia, where patients were given the standard of care by a WCUHKL nurse. Wounds were assessed using the TIME framework. The wounds were cleansed using distilled water and debridement was done where necessary before being covered by polymeric membrane dressings. All wounds dressed with polymeric membrane dressings showed improvement and half closed within four weeks.
