NEGATIVE PRESSURE WOUND TREATMENT

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is an indispensable part of contemporary wound care treatments that accelerate the healing factors in acute and chronic wounds and play an active role in the healing time.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is provided by a unit that produces negative pressure and the complicated operation of its intermediate elements.

Closure / Filler Material, Collection Set, Film Cover (Drape), Connection Hoses, Vacuum Port, Filters and Clamps make up the whole system.

The filling material applied to the wound area touches the entire wound surface and transmits the pressure homogeneously to all the surfaces it touches.

The filling material is covered with a film cover so that there is no air contact with the outside. Film covers with adhesive properties are transparent. The vacuum port is connected to the wound through a small annular space opening onto the film dressing. Connection hoses are also connected to the collection set. The vacuum generated by the negative pressure unit is sent to the wound through the system elements through the integrated collection set. According to this principle, negative pressure (vacuum) is applied to the wound surface continuously with different pressure values and time intervals.

NPWT has many positive effects on healing in various ways.

Local reduction in edema
Increasing cell proliferation by stimulating cell proliferation
Elimination of wound exudate (discharge)
Stimulation of angiogenesis
Promoting granulation texture
The contraction of the wound edges
Providing an isolated and humid environment
Activating the blood flow in the wound area

These are some of the positive effects. Visible effects such as wound bed optimization and reduction of surgical complexity are observed after each session after NPWT applications. It can be applied according to need in all wound types. For example, it can be applied to tissue trauma, open abdomen, skin grafts, pressure ulcers (decubitus), diabetes ulcers, venous ulcers and other acute wounds.

NPWT is contra indicated and should not be applied in the following situations:

Untreated osteomyelitis
Non-enteric fistulas
Necrotic tissues
Malignancy
Exposed veins, nerves or organs

Determining the Filler, Choosing the Right Therapy Mode, and Determining the Pressure

While Confort Silver Wound Closure Sets are frequently used in infected wounds, Confort Instillation Wound Closure Sets are used for the wounds with fungal symptoms that need to be washed.

For traumatic wound therapy applications, Confort Standart Wound Closure Sets(Hydrophobic) are generally used. All Confort Negative Pressure Closure Sets are listed in the Products tab according to their usage areas.

These different choices, which are important in terms of treatment, are applied in a comfortable, practical and complicated way with the Confort C300, C300TS with 3 different therapy modes in a single unit and with the Confort C500 with 4 different therapy modes. All that remains is that the relevant professional selects the optimum pressure and applies it. The modernized Confort C300, C300TS and C500 transmits the target pressure to the wound bed with minimal deviation in all measurements and undergoes regular tests.
