Page Type
Product Code
Definition
A non-powered suction apparatus indicated for negative pressure wound therapy (npwt) that is intended for wound management via application of continual or intermittent negative pressure to the wound for removal of fluids, including wound exudate, irrigation fluids, and infectious materials.
Physical State
Mechanical pump and wound dressing kit
Technical Method
The wound bed is dressed, fitted with mode of communication between the wound bed and suction apparatus, and sealed (according to labeling instructions). The suction apparatus is engaged to create a vacuum (negative pressure) within the wound bed drives the wound exudate to be pumped from the wound bed into a collection canister. It is designed to provide a pre-set level of negative pressure to the wound bed.
Target Area
For management of chronic, acute, traumatic, subacute and dehisced wounds; partial-thickness burns; ulcers (such as diabetic or pressure) flaps and grafts.
