Fluid Accumulation POD 1-5

In unmeshed INTEGRA™ Bilayer Matrix Wound Dressing sheets, clear or amber fluid may accumulate under the matrix between INTEGRA™ Bilayer Matrix Wound Dressing and the wound bed. Although fluid drainage is a normal part of the healing process, fluid accumulation can lead to infection and /or the formation of granulation tissue and should therefore be evacuated.

Intervention:

Evacuate by needle aspiration, rolling or wicking with a cotton tip applicator or gauze pad.
