Aim: Remove slough and absorb exudate

Use hydroactive dressings, or alginate dressings covered by a foam dressing. 

Primary dressing examples: alginate; hydrofiber; or hydroactive.

Secondary dressing examples: high absorbent non-adherent dressing; or foam.

For deeper wounds, use an alginate alternative dressing.

When the risk of infection is high, an antimicrobial dressing should be considered, for example silver dressings.
