[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Background: Pressure ulcers are a worldwide health care concern affecting tens of thousands of patients. If ulcers are not treated well, they can create irretrievable difficulties. Aim: this study was designed to comparison of hydrocolloid and saline gauze dressing for treatment of pressure sores. Method: This is a clinical trial that was performed among hospitalized patients in educational hospitals of Semnan. Sampling was purposeful. 60 patients with stage 1 or 2 pressure sores were selected, then they were divided randomly in two groups. 30 patients were treated by moist gauze dressing and 30 patients by hydrocolloid dressing. All subjects were matched by age, sex, Body Mass Index (BMI), stage of pressure ulcer, location of ulcer, level of consciousness, mobility, nutritional way, having or not having attendant. Ulcers were studied in two groups, and assessed by checklist in the first, second, third, and fourth weeks and assessment parameters included: size, color and exudate amount of ulcers. State of ulcers was determined by collection scores of parameters and divided to complete healing, partial healing, without improvement or worsening. Then the checklist was analyzed by spss software and was compared two groups together. Result: The finding showed that there was no statistical significance in healing ulcers (p=0.941) and mean healing time (p=0.428 between two groups. Conclusion: hydrocolloid dressing and moist gauze are effective on pressure ulcers but none of them have preference over another.
