Abstract

There are various threats to the skin's integrity with the most damaging being exudate, faecal or urinary incontinence, and the removal of adhesive dressings from friable skin. This article presents six case studies that highlight the importance of selecting the correct barrier product as part of a co-ordinated treatment plan, in order to effectively manage erythema, excoriation, maceration, and pain in vulnerable patients.
