How Exudate Progress Monitor works
Leaving wounds undisturbed can help healing. The Exudate Progress Monitor gives you the confidence to leave the dressing in place for longer
The Exudate Progress Monitor is a grid of equidistant dots.
e.g. 4x4 cm
As exudate spreads you can record a dot count that reflects exudate volume in the dressing.
e.g. 8x10 cm
You can then refer to the recorded dot count to help monitor exudate trends.
e.g. 10 x 14cm
Consider dressing change when exudate is approaching the borders of the dressing.*
* Wound inspection and dressing change frequencies are driven by clinical decision and should be at the discretion of the treating clinician
