When should one use collagen dressings?

Collagen wound dressings are suitable for use on necrotic or granulating wounds (that is dead tissue and healing wounds), on wounds with minimal-to-heavy exudates (i.e. watery discharge and or pus). Wounds which are chronic and non-healing may also benefit from collagen dressings which can jump-start the healing process.
