Posterior Trunk Wounds and Incontinence: Keeping Wound Dressings in Place
Moisture-associated skin damage (MASD), including incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD), may contribute to skin breakdown and pressure injuries in the posterior gluteal region. The foam wound dressings often used to prevent pressure injuries are counterproductive in patients with incontinence because these dressings do not stay in place when wet or soiled and may not fit the wound well.
This white paper, sponsored by Coloplast, the maker of Triad Hydrophilic Wound Dressing, discusses wound dressing challenges in patients with posterior trunk wounds and incontinence and describes favorable outcomes with Triad use in a clinical study. This guide also provides an overview of MASD and its role in pressure injury development.
Wound care professionals will be interested in the results reported in this white paper on the use of Triad in posterior trunk wounds.
