- Effective exudate management has been shown to contribute to a reduction in time to wound healing, a reduction in skin damage and risk of infection, whilst improving patient quality of life and healthcare efficiency.
- It is important that clinicians find a balance between the beneficial and damaging effects of wound exudate; this will help to achieve moist wound healing, while minimising the risk of moisture-related damage to the wound and periwound skin.
- Focus should be on the nature of wound exudate as well as exudate volume; the clinical and economic challenges posed by different exudate types should be considered when developing an exudate management plan.
- Mepilex XT incorporates exudate channels, designed to draw both low and high viscosity exudate away from the wound bed, helping to protect the wound and peri-wound area from moisture-related damage.
