Ensuring the correct choice of wound dressing requires clinicians to balance knowledge of the principles of wound healing with understanding of the performance parameters of particular dressings. In addition, clinicians require robust evidence-based knowledge regarding the quality, clinical- and cost-effectiveness of wound dressings in order to assist decision-making. This is particularly paramount when managing moderate-to-highly exuding wounds, where it is essential to select a dressing that can effectively manage the exudate, as well as promoting moist wound healing. This article presents results from two clinical evaluations of AQUACEL® Foam dressing, a unique next-generation foam that incorporates Hydrofiber® Technology. The article details its effective exudate management and periwound skin protection, and its positive impact on patient satisfaction and quality of life.
