Optimal protocols of wound management for chronic wounds have been changed through advanced dressing materials. While these dressing materials have been spread to various medical fields, the proper usage is not accomplished. Moreover, some medical personnel still stick to old dressing style including the gauze. In 1960s, the concept of wet dressing accelerating rapid wound healing developed and since then, wet dressing has been a formula method of the wound treatment. Over hundreds of dressing materials which maintain wet environment are commercially available but selecting the right dressing material with the exact purpose is not an easy task. To declare and also to promote the education, the dressing material is classified into large categories, pros and cons and also indication for each category will be discussed. The purpose of this review is to reduce errors in selecting wrong dressing materials, therefore precisely accessing the wound treatment. (J Korean Wound Management Soc 2015;11:16-19)
