COSTA DA SILVA, Josielson et al. Evidence for the Treatment of Wounds in Newborns: An Integrative Review. Enfermería (Montevideo) [online]. 2024, vol.13, n.1, e3220.  Epub 01-Jun-2024. ISSN 1688-8375.


Given the particularities and challenges in the management and treatment of wounds in newborns, it becomes important for nurses to know, indicate and evaluate the efficacy and safety of dressings and products, even in the analysis of products for the neonatal population.


To identify in the literature the main dressings and products used to treat wounds in newborns.


This is an integrative literature review, with articles published between 2018 and 2022, which addressed the topics of dressings and products used in the treatment of wounds in newborns. Data collection was carried out through consultation in Biblioteca Virtual de Saúde and in the Scientific Electronic Library Online. The “newborn”, “wounds” and “bandage” descriptors were used. The analysis was carried out according to the PICO strategy and structured following PRISMA.


Given the findings, it was possible to identify 13 articles that addressed products and dressings intended for treating wounds in newborns. Fourteen types of dressings/products and devices that use negative pressure therapy were found.

Final considerations:

The literature indicates the use of products and dressings with passive, active and biological principles for the treatment of wounds in newborns, including premature neonates, and it is worth highlighting the importance of considering the safe use of dressings that are suitable for this population.
