The production of wound exudate occurs as a result of vasodilation during the early inflammatory stage of healing under the influence of inflammatory mediators such as histamine and bradykinin.

Exufiber is a unique dressing using Hydrolock technology, which makes use of strong polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) fibres that are entangled together in all directions, mechanically secured to each other, providing the high wet integrity.
Excellent locking properties of the PVA technology, together with well-balanced space between the fibres, minimize free fluid inside the product, enabling superior technology is designed for highly exuding wounds.
Products are available to manage wounds with different exudate levels.
Hydrogels including the Intrasite* product range and Solosite* Gel can be used to add moisture to wounds that are dry or that have low exudate levels.
Exufiber is made of a different synthetic material than conventional fibre dressings.
Hydrolock technology is designed to pack each dressing with fibres, leaving less space for fluid to flow freely, which contributes to superior fluid retention compared to other gelling fibre dressings.
Nerve endings are protected - reducing pain - and skin layers repair at a faster rate producing less scarring than in dry wounds.
As part of the normal healing process wounds release fluid (or exudate).
In turn, this offers protection from skin maceration.
