Vacuum Assisted Wound Healing.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NWPT) is a medical technique that uses a vacuum assisted dressing in order to heal acute, chronic, and even burn wounds.

It heals your wound quicker by creating a sub-atomic pressure at the surface of your wound in order to:

  • Remove excess fluids from your wound.
  • Decrease tissue swelling.
  • Optimize blood flow.
  • Minimize bacteria, and chance of infection.

With all of the above happening because of the wound vac your wound can heal faster, and more effectively.

How Does NPWT Work?

First, a special sealed dressing, and foam is applied to your wound in order to create an environment for your wound.

Once your wound is properly sealed, a medical vacuum is then used to create subatomic pressure under the dressing.

This vacuum effectively draws out the excessive fluid from your wound, increases blood flow, and helps creates a sterile environment for your wound.

Which allows your wound the best chance of healing how it's suppose to.

Another great benefit of NPWT devices are:

Because they allow the delivery of fluids, such as saline solution, and antibiotics, to irrigate your wound.

Therefore, making it very easy to care for your wound, while giving it a great chance to heal faster.
