Objective: Many substances have been used for wound-burn treatment to date. Recent studies have focused not only on covering the wound but also on the production of dressings that will provide patient comfort at the highest level. This review mentions the types of dressings and the expected features of an ideal wound dressing. An ideal wound dressing should close the wound and protect against external factors such as microorganisms. It must have an appropriate absorption capacity for the exudate level in terms of not drying the wound. It should mimic healthy skin with mechanical strength and flexibility. Wound dressing is expected to accelerate healing by supporting cell proliferation and migration. Result and Discussion: One or more of these features come to the fore when the patient's age and chronic diseases, wound depth, degree, and stage are considered. As a result, since many factors are influential in wound dressing selection, it is crucial to examine the properties of materials. Wound dressings should be developed by considering tissue debridement, infection control, moisture balance, and epithelization.
