Managing moisture to achieve the optimum ‘moist’ wound healing environment is key to facilitating wound healing. Wounds which are dry or have a low volume of exudate need moisture added for hydration. Wounds that are wet with a high volume of exudate need fluid to be removed effectively by dressings with high absorbency. Moisture imbalance can have negative consequences for patients — physically, psychologically and socially.
