Aim: Remove slough and absorb exudate.

In particular use amorphous hydrogels, as they rehydrate, or hydrocolloid, to aid in the removal of slough.

Amorphous hydrogels should be covered with a true foam, as some foam-like products will absorb the gel.

Hydrocolloid paste should be covered by a foam or film dressing. Hydrocolloid dressings need no secondary dressing. Polysaccharide Iodine may also be used.
