Negative Pressure Wounds Therapy

Cork Medical

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy has come to be regarded as one of the optimal treatment methods when treating chronic, acute, traumatic, sub-acute and dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, and venous ulcers, flaps, and grafts. This technique encompasses the use of a closed vacuum system, drawing out fluid from the wound, while increasing blood flow to the affected areas. Use of Negative Pressure not only shortens the healing time, but often is the only therapy that heals wounds.
