Abstract

Good wound management must involve an holistic approach to care; without considering the whole person, appropriate management might not be as good as it could be. In a time of austerity, it is important that money is spent appropriately on the correct wound-management technologies. Exudate assessment and management are a vital part of wound management. In this article, the focus will be on exploring the nature of exudate and tools available to evaluate exudate. Finally, suggestions will be made on the management of exudate.
