Finding the Right Balance

Exudate assists healing:1

  • Prevents wound bed from drying out
  • Aids migration of tissue-repairing cells
  • Provides essential nutrients for cell metabolism
  • Assists separation of dead or damaged tissue(autolysis).

Excess exudate may:1

  • Cause maceration of surrounding tissue
  • Delay or prevent wound healing
  • Cause subsequent breakdown and further deterioration of the wound bed
