Wound VAC kits, also known as negative pressure
wound therapy kit, are a medical tool that aid in wound healing. They consist of
a wound dressing, a vacuum pump, and tubing to link the three. To make an
airtight seal, the wound dressing is applied over the wound and sealed. The
dressing and vacuum pump are then connected to the tubing to create negative
pressure, which aids in draining extra fluid and encourages blood flow to the
wound region. Wound VAC kits can lessen the chance of infection and speed up
the healing process.
