German term or phrase: feuchte Kammer
Text about wound treatment following a gastrostomy. Sentence is "feuchte Kammer vermeiden" and appears in initial stages of wound treatment. Thanks. Nick

English translation:Weeping
Explanation:
That's not only the translation but also what I'd like to do after reading about damp rooms and cameras. A "feuchte Kammer" in the post-surgical sense, is a "weeping pocket". The patient is advised to keep the incision dry to avoid the formation of pockets of infection.

avoid damp in the space


Explanation:
The context is not clear, since Kammer might refer to an endoscopic camera as well as any space. Thus the text could refer to the use of an endoscopic camera during the procedure, as well as to the space between the gastrostomy tube and the wound or the space between the dressing and the wound.
