Managing exudate and preventing biofilms in primary care
Put simply, exudate is the fluid that leaks from the capillaries during the healing process. It helps to create a moist wound environment and assists with healing by removing devitalised tissue, repairing damaged cells and providing nourishment to assist with epithelialisation. Exudate is produced in the initial wound-healing process as part of the inflammation stage.
