Wounds are one of the most common types of injuries faced by patients. There are a number of different types of injuries, but the main ones are lacerations, abrasions, and punctures. While these may be minor in nature, they can become pretty serious if left untreated for too long. One thing you may have noticed is that some people have a difficult time controlling the bleeding from those wounds. That’s because it is more difficult to stop bleeding than you might think. Thankfully, high exudate wound dressings can help with this problem!
What are High Exudate wound dressings?
High exudate wound dressings are a type of dressing that uses saline to draw excess fluid and plasma from a wound. A high exudate wound dressing is a bandage or wrap that is intended to help manage large, open wounds that are constantly producing high levels of fluid. These dressings are typically made from a material that absorbs and holds liquids and blood, which helps to reduce the amount of fluid that accumulates on the wound. The dressing also helps to close the wound and reduce the amount of swelling and pain. High exudate wound dressings are often used in cases where the wound is not healing properly or where there is a high risk of infection.
Most high exudate wound dressings are made from a hydrocolloid material, such as polydioxanone (PDS). This type of dressing absorbs fluid and blood while providing support and protection to the wound.
How does a High Exudate Wound dressing work?
A High Exudate Wound dressing is a type of wound dressing that is designed to help stop the bleeding from a wound by trapping and absorbing excess fluid. These dressings are typically made from a soft, absorbent material such as gauze or cotton and are often covered in a protective film. They are often placed on top of a wound to help prevent further leakage and help promote healing.
The benefits of using high exudate dressings
When treating wounds, there are a few key things to keep in mind. One of the most important is the type of wound dressing that will be used. There are a number of different types of dressings available, each with its own set of benefits and risks. In this post, we'll discuss everything you need to know about high exudate dressings (HEWs).
The first thing to understand about HEWs is that they're designed to help remove excess fluid from a wound. This can be important in two ways: First, it can help provide better protection. Second, it can help stop the wound from becoming too dry and cracked.
One of the biggest benefits of HEWs is that they're able to do a lot of work quickly. This is due to their high concentration of absorbent materials. As a result, they are able to remove large amounts of fluid very quickly – without causing pain or damage to the skin.
Why use high exudate wound dressings?
A high exudate wound dressing is a type of wound dressing that helps to increase the rate at which fluid leaks from a wound. This is due to the fact that the dressing has a higher concentration of absorbent material than other wound dressings. When used in conjunction with other wound care measures, such as keeping the area clean and dry, this can help to speed the healing process.
