  1. Dressing

    A dressing is an adjunct used by a person for application to a wound to promote healing and/or prevent further harm. A dressing is designed to be in direct contact with the wound, which makes it different from a bandage, which is primarily used to hold a dressing in place. Some organisations classify them as the same thing and the terms are used interchangeably by some people. Dressings are frequently used in first aid and nursing.
