    The principles of MEBT/MEBO in treating all types of wounds are Three DONT principle and Three no accumulation. In addition, appropriate temperature, physiologically moist environment and smooth drainage on the wound are also required throughout the treatment. As long as all the above requirements are met, bandaging can be adopted to treat local wounds such as bed sores and diabetic ulcers, which is more practical in clinic. 
    For the wounds in the early stage or wounds with infection, the exudation and necrosis are usually abundant in the first couple days, thus dressing change is needed for 2-3 times per day. Apply proper amount of MEBO on the wound with the thickness of 2-3 mm after the debridement, and cover the wound with MEBO gauze for 1-2 layers, which is then covered with cotton dressings in 2-3 cm for low-pressure bandaging. When the wound is clean in the treatment for approximately one week, dressing change can be performed 1-2 times a day.  
    The same bandaging method is also applicable for the outpatients, so that the wound is protected from secondary damage and also is convenient for the patients to move about and rest.
