Exudate management remains a key challenge in clinical practice. The main goals of all exudate management interventions are to optimise the wound bed moisture level and to remove exudate that contains bacteria and other substances that can inhibit healing, in order to improve outcomes and patient quality of life. Gelling fibre dressings are a solution for moderate to highly exuding wounds (WUWHS, 2019), and are a well-accepted option in the management of exudate. Biatain® Fiber with HexaLock® Technology (Coloplast) is a soft and sterile gelling fibre dressing intended for use as a primary wound dressing. The dressing has been developed in consultation with clinicians to effectively absorb and retain exudate. The unique HexaLock Technology locks in exudate, minimises shrinkage and forms a cohesive gel that ensures an easy one-piece removal with minimal risk of leaving residue in the wound.
