ActiV.A.C.® Therapy Unit Image

KCI logo

Product type – A portable negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system.

Principle function –  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 facilitate wound healing by drawing wound edges together, removing infectious materials and actively promoting granulation at the cellular level.

Recommended use– Open wound types include: chronic, acute, traumatic, sub-acute and dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic, pressure or venous insufficiency), flaps and grafts.

Frequency of dressing change – The V.A.C.® Dressing should be changed once every 48–72 hours, but no less than three times a week. For infected wounds, dressings may need to be changed more often.

Precautions If patient is not in hospital, the patient needs to be able to problem solve the device, or have 24 hour access to someone who can.

Contraindications– V.A.C.® Therapy is contraindicated for patients with malignancy in the wound, untreated osteomyelitis, Non-enteric and unexplored fistulas, Necrotic tissue with eschar present, Sensitivity to silver (V.A.C. GranuFoam Silver® Dressing only). Never leave a V.A.C.® Dressing in place without active NPWT for more than 2 hours.

Product type – a negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system

Principle function – The Integrated V.A.C. ® Therapy System is a proven, non-invasive, advanced approach to NPWT. Special foam dressings, applied to the wound site, ensure that fluid is continuously drawn away from the wound and SensaT.R.A.C.™ Technology manages the equal distribution of pressure across the wound area. This device also records information relevant to the wound management.

Recommended use–Open wound types include: chronic, acute, traumatic, sub-acute and dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic, pressure or venous insufficiency, flaps and grafts. InfoV.A.C® Therapy can be used in highly exuding wounds

Frequency of dressing change –V.A.C.® dressings should be changed once every 48–72 hours, but no less than three times a week. For infected wounds, dressings may need to be changed more often.

Precautions If patient is not in hospital, the patient needs to be able to problem solve the device, or have 24 hour access to someone who can. Negative pressure wound therapy should be active.

Never leave a V.A.C.® Dressing in place without active NPWT for more than 2 hours.

Contraindications– V.A.C.® Therapy is contraindicated for patients with malignancy in the wound, untreated osteomyelitis, Non-enteric and unexplored fistulas, Necrotic tissue with eschar present.

Nanova™ Therapy
Nanova™ Therapy Image

KCI logo

Product type – advanced dressing enhanced with Negative pressure wound (NPWT). The Nanova™ Therapy unit is a single use disposable device designed lasts for 30 days

Principle function – The Nanova™ Therapy System is indicated for patients who would benefit from wound management via the application of negative pressure, particularly as the device may promote wound healing through the removal of excess exudate, infectious material.

Recommended use– The Nanova™ Therapy System is indicated for removal of small amounts of exudate from small chronic, acute, traumatic, sub-acute and dehisced wounds, partial thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic, venous or pressure), surgically closed incisions, flaps, and grafts.

Frequency of dressing change –As fluid is absorbed into the white pad of the Nanova™ dressing, the pad will start to take on the colour of the wound fluid. Change when the pad appears full, or every 72 hours.

Precautions –  The dressing may leak if there is a break in the seal, so there won’t be a vacuum. However the dressing will still absorb wound fluid if negative pressure is off. Please contact your clinical caregiver as soon as possible and follow the advice given.

Contraindications– Nanova™ Therapy is contraindicated for patients with malignancy in the wound, untreated osteomyelitis, Non-enteric and unexplored fistulas, necrotic tissue with eschar present.

V.A.C. VeraFlo™
V.A.C. VeraFlo™ Image

KCI logo

Product type – A negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system.

Principle function – The V.A.C. VeraFlo™ Therapy System is an integrated system that can deliver either V.A.C. VeraFlo™ Therapy (instillation) which consists of NPWT (V.A.C.® Therapy) coupled with controlled delivery and drainage of topical wound irrigation treatment solutions and suspensions over the wound bed. Or V.A.C.® Therapy which consists of NPWT alone.

Recommended use–  V.A.C. VeraFlo™ Therapy which is indicated for patients who would benefit from vacuum-assisted closure alone, or vacuum-assisted closure and controlled delivery of topical wound solutions over the wound bed. In the absence of instillation V.A.C.® Therapy is intended to create an environment that promotes wound healing by secondary or tertiary (delayed primary) intention by preparing the wound bed for closure, reducing oedema, promoting granulation tissue formation and perfusion, and by removing exudate and infectious material.

Frequency of dressing change – The V.A.C.® Dressing should be changed once every 48–72 hours, but no less than three times a week. For infected wounds, dressings may need to be changed more often.

Precautions Never leave a V.A.C.® Dressing in place without active NPWT for more than 2 hours.

Contraindications– V.A.C.® Therapy is contraindicated for patients with malignancy in the wound, untreated osteomyelitis, Non-enteric and unexplored fistulas, Necrotic tissue with eschar present.
