Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Over the span of a century, researchers and clinicians have described improved wound healing with adjunctive NPWT. In practice, the benefits and goals of removing excessive exudate from purulent wounds through vacuum assisted drainage have grown to include: 

    Reduction of painful dressing changes
    Increased blood flow
    Maintenance of a moist wound environment
    Removal of third-space fluids and debris
    Establishment of fluid balance
    Reduction of edema
    Increased growth factors
    Positive effects on leukocytes and fibroblasts
    Removal of slough
    Improved wound stability
    Prevention of maceration


Recent research and expanding clinical experience aim to more fully explain the underlying mechanisms by which NPWT confers its benefits, and to optimize treatment protocols.

In general, there is increased dialogue among wound care specialists about:

    The use of lower negative pressure settings in general than traditionally applied
    The use of different pressure recommendations for different types of tissue
    The potential benefits of using variable pressure therapy and intermittent pressure therapy protocols versus continuous therapy
