Caring for a burn wound injury is complex and challenging. The wound care professional must provide effective infection prevention, oedema management, and individualised wound care to give a burn wound injury the best opportunity to heal. Wound cleansing is an important part of wound bed preparation. Unfortunately, there is not much evidence to support a particular type of wound cleansing for burn wounds.
