Excess exudate management, critical colonisation, wound infection and trauma and pain at dressing change are all daily issues facing clinicians working in wound management. Absorbent dressings with antimicrobial activity are often necessary to reduce wound bioburden in heavily exuding wounds, however, they can adhere to the wound bed and result in trauma and pain on removal.
