We know that having a wound can be a challenging and scary experience, but your doctor feels that V.A.C.® Therapy is a positive and effective way for managing your wound. This site was developed to help you better understand V.A.C.® Therapy and provide you with best use practices once the therapy is prescribed by your doctor. If you have questions about the benefits or the risks of V.A.C.® Therapy, please contact your doctor.
The V.A.C.® Therapy System is a medical device that promotes wound healing by applying negative pressure (a vacuum) to your wound. Your wound is covered by a dressing that protects the injured area. It is important that you do not change the settings on your V.A.C.® Therapy System unless instructed to do so by your doctor or nurse. These settings control how much negative pressure is applied to your wound. Also, never remove your wound covering unless told to do so by your doctor or nurse.
To give your wound the best chance to heal while on V.A.C.® Therapy System, you should leave the unit running and on the wound for a least 22 hours every day. That may seem like a lot of time, but this promotes healing. Below are a few of the questions many ask when getting started with V.A.C.® Therapy.
