If the swabs are fixed using mild pressure on the wound during wound closure they can have a significant effect on haemostasis. In practice, which surgical swab is appropriate will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Their absorbability will also be an important factor in this decision. In addition to their basic use to protect wounds, surgical swabs are also used as suspension media (for example, for ointments and lotions) and are in daily use as an aid for cleaning wounds.
