What is Negative Pressure Wound VAC Therapy?
Negative pressure wound VAC therapy is an advanced therapy treatment that uses a temporary decrease in air pressure around a wound to aid in the healing process. This use of negative pressure pulls the edges of the wound together, promoting proper healing in a more quick and efficient way. Our medical professionals may suggest negative pressure wound VAC therapy as part of your treatment plan if you're suffering from burns, traumatic injury wounds, surgical incisions that aren't healing on their own, pressure ulcers, or a slow-healing c-section incision.
What are the Benefits of Negative Pressure Wound VAC Therapy?
There are many benefits of receiving negative pressure wound VAC therapy treatments with the medical professionals at StrideWoundCare, including:
- Non-invasive procedure
- Reduces swelling and inflammation
- Prevents bacterial infection
- Increases blood flow to the wound
- Gently pulls the edges of the wound together for faster and more efficient healing
What Can I Expect During My Negative Pressure Wound VAC Therapy?
Your negative pressure wound VAC therapy treatment will be performed by one of StrideWoundCare's expert medical professionals. Your medical team member will begin your treatment by sealing your wound with a layer of foam dressing and a thin film. These dressings will have an opening that can be connected to a vacuum pump. Once connected, the vacuum will create a level of negative pressure that gently pulls fluids away from the wound and brings the edges of the wound together. Each patient will be asked to wear this pump for varying times, depending on the type and severity of the wound that they have. To learn out more about your negative pressure wound VAC therapy plan in detail, we encourage you to schedule a private consultation with one of our expert staff members at your convenience.
What Can I Expect After My Negative Pressure Wound VAC Therapy?
Because negative pressure wound VAC therapy treatments are non-invasive, there is no formal downtime associated with your treatment session. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities during and immediately following their treatment sessions.
