Exudate management/environmental control Control or prevention of infection Provide a bacterial barrier Odour control Low-adherence Freedom from toxicity. 3 Fluid-handling tests The effective management of the moisture content of a wound and the surrounding skin is perhaps the most important requirements of any dressing system. In the case of exuding wounds, this implies the removal of excess wound fluid, but, in dry or lightly exuding wounds, the dressing may be required to conserve moisture in order to maintain the exposed tissue in the optimum state of hydration to facilitate epithelialisation or promote autolytic debridement.

The dressing is placed in a Petri dish together with a quantity of test solution equivalent to 40 times the weight of the test sample, and held for 30 min at 37 °C after which it is gently removed from the dish, allowed to drain for 30 s and reweighed. The absorbency is then expressed as the mass of solution retained per 100 cm 2 (for sheet dressings) or per gram of sample for cavity dressings. 5 mmol of calcium ions as the chloride salts. This solution has an ionic composition similar to human serum or exudate.
