By now you have heard about Medicare rescinding coverage for most of the honey based dressings. I had good success with them for a variety of applications. However, the sad fact is that a lot of the research we need to do about dressings and the benefits of the various types just hasn’t been done. The dressing industry is a $2 billion dollar industry and we really don’t know that much about how these products perform in our patients on a day-to-day basis. We could figure it out with registry data.
