The management of exudate is an essential requirement in wound care. It is important that an optimal moist environment is created and the surrounding skin protected from the risk of maceration and subsequent risk of infection. Selected antimicrobial dressings for wounds aim to manage exudate levels, maintain a moist wound environment, aid progression and reduce any signs of infection. This article reports on how the ActivHeal Aquafiber Ag dressing performs on a diverse range of patients with complex infected and non-infected wounds.
