Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT), also known as a
vacuum assisted closure (VAC), is a therapeutic technique using a suction pump, tubing and a dressing to remove excess exudate and promote healing in acute or chronic wounds.
Benefits of using NPWT especially KCI product
A wound vacuum device removes this pressure over the area of
the wound. This can help a wound heal in several ways. It can
gently pull fluid from the wound over time. This can reduce
swelling, and may help clean the wound and remove bacteria. A
wound VAC also helps pull the edges of the wound together.
And it may stimulate the growth of new tissue that helps the wound close.
A wound vacuum system may help your wound heal more
quickly by: Draining excess fluid from the wound
- Reducing bacteria in the wound
- Keeping your wound moist and warm
- Helping draw together wound edges
- Increasing blood flow to your wound
- Decreasing redness and swelling (inflammation)
