WOUNDEX WOUND PUMP

WOUNDEX WOUND PUMP

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Systems

Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a therapeutic technique using a vacuum dressing to promote healing in acute or chronic wounds and enhance healing of first and second degree burns. The therapy involves the controlled application of sub-atmospheric pressure to the local wound environment, using a sealed wound dressing connected to a vacuum pump.The woundex NWPT system operates on two therapy modes, continuous and intermittent.

 

 

 

 

Common goals of NWPT:

Promote rapid reduction in wound volume
Promote growth of granulation tissue and contraction of wound edges
Manage exudate
Prepare the wound bed for transition to another treatment modality such as MWH, surgical closure, or a flap or graft
Reduce bioburden (bioburden is the degree of microbial contamination or microbial load)
Decrease hospital stay length
Decrease morbidity and mortality
Decrease frequency of dressing change
Prevent deterioration of the wound
Minimize contamination and wound odor by providing a temporary barrier
