Abstract

This study used nonwoven manufacture and electrospinning to create wound dressings with solid mechanical properties and hemostasis function. 10% Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and 5% Bletilla striata (BS) were blended into the PVA/BS solution, which can be made into nanomaterial with high specific surface area by electrospinning. The PVA/BS solution was electrospun onto the dressing matrix made of polyester (PET) and absorbent cotton (AC), forming the PVA/BS composite dressings. According to the experiment results, when the volume ratio of PVA to BS was 9: 1, the resulting dressings had optimal fiber formation, the finest average diameter, and the lowest toxicity.
