Autolytic Wound Debridement

Autolytic Debridement: Your Body Healing Itself.

Autolytic debridement refers to the body’s natural ability to use its own enzymes and moisture to shed dead or necrotic tissue with moisture. If the body is able to keep the tissue moist, then it will naturally degrade and flake from the underlying healthy tissues.

When wound moisture cannot be maintained or when there is too much moisture coming from the wound, there are two categories of wound management products that can be applied. One category includes products that add moisture to the dead tissue. The other category of products absorb excess moisture produced by the body.

Both are designed to enhance autolytic debridement.
