Vac treatment


  
   

 
 




Please confirm with the qualified doctor before starting treatment.

Also be in regular followup and get it reviewed with well qualified doctor, as treatment is sometimes not required or alternative surgical closure may  be more effective.

Science Behind Wound Therapy

Understanding the Science of V.A.C. Therapy

Proven therapy with over 918 peer-reviewed articles, the clinical and economic benefits of V.A.C.®(Vacuum Assisted Closure®) Therapy, also known as NPWT (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy) are widely known. However, it is equally important to understand how V.A.C. Therapy works deep inside the wound to achieve these outcomes. The following sections describe how NPWT (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy), namely V.A.C. Therapy, promotes wound healing and how its unique mechanisms of action differentiate it from other NPWT devices.

What Makes Up the V.A.C. Therapy System

Three Critical Components, One Unique System

The V.A.C. Therapy System is comprised of three essential components that actively work together to help promote wound healing through granulation tissue formation.

 

 

NPWT | KCI

 

  1. V.A.C. Therapy Unit Provides intermittent and continuous therapy with integrated patient safety features
  2. SensaT.R.A.C.™ Technology Regulates pressure at the wound site to provide accurate delivery of prescribed therapy settings
  3. V.A.C. GranuFoam™ Dressings Help provide the necessary mechanisms to promote granulation tissue formation

 

How V.A.C. Therapy Promotes Wound Healing

The Science Behind the System: Macrostrain and Microstrain

Under negative pressure, V.A.C. Therapy with proprietary V.A.C. GranuFoam Dressings applies mechanical forces to the wound to create an environment that promotes wound healing. These forces are known as macrostrain and microstrain. 

V.A.C. Therapy and Macrostrain | KCI

 

Macrostrain is the visible stretch that occurs when negative pressure contracts the foam.

Macrostrain:

  • Draws wound edges together
  • Provides direct and complete wound bed contact
  • Evenly distributes negative pressure
  • Removes exudate and infectious materials 
V.A.C. Therapy and Microstrain | KCI

 

Microstrain is the microdeformation at the cellular level, which leads to cell stretch.1

Microstrain:

  • Reduces edema
  • Promotes perfusion
  • Promotes granulation tissue formation by facilitating cell migration and proliferation

Using V.A.C. Therapy with V.A.C. GranuFoam Dressings results in both macrostrain and microstrain for advanced wound healing.

Watch a video of how V.A.C. Therapy works through macrostrain and microstrain.

V.A.C. Therapy Mechanisms of Action

V.A.C. Therapy creates an environment that promotes wound healing through the following mechanisms:

Wound Healing BarrierV.A.C. Therapy Mechanism
Excess bacterial burdenRemoves infectious materials
Inadequate protection against infectionProvides protected wound healing environment
Excess exudateRemoves exudate
Excess edema (interstitial fluid)Reduces edema (interstitial fluid)
Absence of moistureProvides a moist wound healing environment
Lack of adequate blood flowPromotes perfusion
Lack of granulation tissue formationRemoves barriers to cell migration and proliferation

What is SensaT.R.A.C. Technology?

SensaT.R.A.C. Technology

V.A.C. Therapy uses SensaT.R.A.C. (Therapeutic Regulated Accurate Care) to:

  • Monitor and maintain target pressure at the wound site for consistent therapy delivery
  • Helps reduce tubing blocks and false alarms through enhanced fluid dynamics
  • Provides alarms for enhanced patient safety
  • Enhance patient comfort

V.A.C.® Therapy for Wounds

Since its introduction in 1995 (U.S.) / 1994 (Europe), V.A.C.® Therapy has changed the way wounds are healed. With more published clinical evidence than any other form of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, V.A.C.® Therapy has been selected as the treatment of choice for more than 8,000,000 wounds worldwide*.

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 patented dressing, this helps draw wound edges together, remove infectious materials and actively promote granulation.

With more than eight million wounds treated worldwide*, only V.A.C.® Therapy delivers the proven clinical and economic outcomes caregivers can trust.
