This study investigated on the effectiveness of povidone iodine and normal saline solutions as wet-to-dry dressing in promoting granulation among adult patients with laceration and/or abrasion; and compared their healing time. Convenience sampling technique was used to select study populations. A total of 30 patients admitted to the surgical ward with diagnosis of abrasion and/or laceration of wound were used. A quasi experimental design used convenience sampling and divided the subjects to be experimented for the use of povidone iodine (n=15) and normal saline (n=15). There was no significant difference between normal saline and povidone iodine in promoting wound healing for laceration / abrasion types of wound among adult patients. However, normal saline has faster healing time (p=0.0474) as compared with povidone iodine (p=0.1489).
