Product name: Zetuvit® Plus Silicone Border - For optimal moisture management

Product description: Estimating how the amount of exudate in a wound will develop over time can be very challenging. While moist wounds heal 2 to 3 times faster than dry wounds[1] skin maceration, prolonged wound healing times and pain are just some of the factors that can result from inadequate exudate management.

Super absorbent polymer dressings such as Zetuvit® Plus Silicone Border are gaining in popularity: they are now included in the latest edition of the World Union of Wound Healing Societies’ (WUWHS) consensus document on effective assessment and management of wound exudate.[3]
