Abstract: Nanomembrane wound care dressings are quite interesting and important growing in the medical textiles Because of unique properties as high surface area to volume ratio film thinness nano scale fibre diameter porosity light weight nanomembranes are used in wound care dressings newlineWound dressing with electrospun nanomembrane can meet the requirements such as higher gas permeation and protection of wound from infection and dehydration The electrospun membrane kept exudates fluid from the wound area and inhibited the invasion of exogenous micro organisms because of the fine pores There is a particular advantage to this system because of the possibility of delivering uniform, highly controlled doses of antibiotics at the wound area by taking advantage of the high surface to volume ratio of the nanomembrane system Six different types of nanomembrane have been developed for special wound care dressings in this research work newlineNine different types of p HEMA drug free nanomembranes were developed by altering the electrospinning process parameters and optimized Ketaprofen drug has been loaded into the optimised p HEMA nanomembrane From the morphological characteristics it was observed that as the concentration of the p HEMA solution increases from 6 wt to 13 wt the fibre formation ability increased proportionately newline newline
