For this reason, clinicians need to take a closer look at how to minimize pressure at the wound bed but also assists in managing the exudate effectively. This is where a Superabsorbent Dressing can help. multiple comorbidities that makes them not just slow to heal but also puts them at high risk of limb loss and life loss. For this reason, clinicians need to take a closer look at how to minimize pressure at the wound bed but also assists in managing the exudate effectively. This is where a SAP dressings can help.
