I&D Drainage & Wound Care
wound drainage is the result of dilation of the blood vessels during the early inflammatory stage of healing, possibly caused by the presence of certain bacteria. In an attempt to heal the wound, the body is creating and maintaining an optimal moist wound environment.
An assessment of exudate volume and appearance can tell a clinician a great deal about the progress of a healing wound. This assessment of the wound can include monitoring the number of dressing changes required a day and a visual inspection of the removed dressing. Some clinical continuity can be maintained by using an assessment tool such as an exudate continuum.
