Exudate Management

hands holding a ball of dirt

Maintaining an optimal balance of exudate can be challenging, but is a critical part of wound care.

This protein-rich fluid, similar in composition to plasma, is essential for the healing process. However, overproduction, underproduction or an abnormal composition can delay healing or adversely affect quality of life for patients.

Our dressings are designed to manage fluid levels, whilst also maintaining periwound skin integrity and can be used as a secondary dressing in combination with our AQUACEL® products.
