Wound Vac (Vacuum Assisted Closure)
The Wound Vac is a type of wound healing procedure done in the patient’s home. A specialized wound dressing is applied and then attached to a vacuum tube which remains in place for several days. This removes excess fluids, increases blood flow necessary for wound healing, decreases bacterial growth preventing infection, and promotes new tissue growth. A nurse will change the dressing on an average of three times per week. Upon each dressing change, the nurse assesses the healing status of the wound and reports back to the physician. This process also improves the healing rate as compared to traditional types of wound care.
