What Do You Need From Your Foam Dressing?

AQUACEL® Foam dressing helps reduce maceration

Vertical wicking locks exudate within the AQUACEL® layer of the dressing, which may reduce the risk of maceration of peri-wound skin†,2. This leg ulcer example shows how fluid is locked into the dressing and creates a mirror image on the AQUACEL® layer.
