Black necrotic wounds (non-ischemic)
Level of exudate: low
Necrotic tissue or eschar consists of an accumulation of dead cells, tissue and cellular debris. Removal of wound eschar through appropriate debridement techniques (surgical or medical) is a prerequisite for the wound healing processes to start.
Remark : sharp debridement can bring about haemorrhage. Conversely, eschar is normally not the result of haemorrhage but much more often of ischaemia.
