Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

What is negative pressure wound therapy?

Negative pressure wound therapy uses an airtight dressing and negative pressure to promote healing in wounds. NPWT encourages blood circulation and healing and can reduce the number of dressing changes and the risk of infection.


How does negative pressure wound therapy work?

A wound is packed with a special dressing, then sealed with transparent film and connected to a drainage tube. That tube connects to the vacuum pump which removes excess fluid from the wound bed, creating a moist environment and reducing edema.
