v.a.c. therapy

V.A.C.® Therapy promotes wound healing through Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT). By delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) at the wound site through a proprietary dressing, the wound edges are drawn together, infectious materials are removed and granulation tissue is promoted at the cellular level. Use of V.A.C.® Therapy has also been shown to help speed the healing of wound grafts.

V.A.C.® Therapy promotes wound healing through Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT). By delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) at the wound site through a proprietary dressing, the wound edges are drawn together, infectious materials are removed and granulation tissue is promoted at the cellular level. Use of V.A.C.® Therapy has also been shown to help speed the healing of wound grafts. Used in conjunction with V.A.C.® GRANUFOAM™ dressings negative pressure applies mechanical forces to the wound to create an environment which promotes wound healing. Microstrain acting at the cellular level promotes granulation tissue by facilitating cell migration & proliferation, and promotes perfusion, while macrostrain provides good wound bed contact, helps draw the wound together and removes exudate. It also aids reduction of oedema. The lightweight, portable V.A.C.® SIMPLICITY™ Therapy Unit from KCI™ is designed for veterinary use, and is available exclusively via Veterinary Instrumentation. The V.A.C.® Therapy System is comprised of essential components that actively work together to help promote wound healing. V.A.C.® Therapy Unit Provides negative pressure wound therapy with integrated patient safety features. SENSAT.R.A.C.™ Technology Regulates pressure at the wound site to provide accurate delivery of prescribed therapy settings. V.A.C.® Canister Collects exudate. V.A.C.® GRANUFOAM™ Dressing Help provide the necessary mechanisms to promote granulation tissue formation. V.A.C.® GRANUFOAM™ dressings are designed to treat a wide variety of wounds, and are available in standard and silver impregnated versions. Both versions of the sterile dressings are open-cell reticulated polyurethane foam with pore size 400-600µm. This is cut to fit within the wound, and should not overlap onto normal skin. To complete the dressing an adhesive V.A.C ® drape is placed over the dressing, adhering to the surrounding skin which has been clipped and dried to improve adhesion. The SENSAT.R.A.C.™ pad is attached to the dressing as per the instructions, and the unit is connected to initiate vacuum therapy. Dressings are changed at 48-72 hours depending on condition being treated and progress. Dressing left without vacuum for more than 2 hours must be changed. For more information on dressing management see the V.A.C.® Therapy for Veterinary Use User Manual or the Quick Start Manual, both available to download at http://kcianimalhealth.com/support/ or contact our Vet Tech Gurus on 0845 130 9596 for a printed copy.
