Also, in the presence of wound exudates, this type of carboxymethylated cellulosic dressing can form a cohesive gel sheet, which facilitates its use under compression bandages. The non-adherent features of these dressings leads to significantly less pain on dressing change [29, 30]. As can be seen in Fig. 7, upon contact with exudates, the carboxymethylated cellulosic fibres take the liquid up into the structure of the fibres themselves, instead of holding it within a web of gelled fibres. This property results in a range of clinical benefits for wound dressings made of partially carboxymethylated cellulosic fibres, including: ∑ ∑ ∑ superior exudate absorption and retention improved handling characteristics enhanced vertical wicking, which minimises the potential for maceration.
