Hydrofiber Technology: its role in exudate management

01/06/10 | Education, Products | Mike Walker, David Parsons

Matching dressing properties to wound requirements is a fundamental part of any good protocol of care, but the mechanics of exudate handling are complex and many factors need to be considered. This paper introduces these factors, giving examples of their effects in conjunction with dressing products and materials. It discusses one modern material (Hydrofiber® Technology) in more depth, using scientific and clinical evidence to illustrate how it has been engineered to retain many of the best attributes of traditional wound dressing materials, while addressing some of their shortcomings.
