5 Individually the tables illustrate the differences between products at each time point, but a comparison of the results achieved with individual products at the two time points clearly demonstrates how the products vary in terms of their rate of hydration. Some products reach full absorbency after 24 h, others are still absorbing after 96 h. These differences clearly have potentially important clinical implications for the use of the products concerned. 3 Moisture vapour transmission rate (MVTR) This same apparatus described in BS EN 13726-1 may be used in a similar although less complicated fashion, to determine the MVTR of permeable fi lm dressings.
