Why It Matters

Every infected wound requires a decisive treatment plan to help rapidly clear the infection and re-establish an environment for healing.
A decisive treatment regime can change the course and cost of infected wound management:
  • In the average 500-bed hospital, infected wounds add 10 days to the length of stay and $2,185 in treatment costs per day2,3
  • A 30-day hospital readmission rate of 19.1% for infection ranks among the highest causes for readmission in U.S. hospitals4
  • Treating patients for Staphylococcus aureus infections, the most commonly identified pathogen in chronic wounds,5 more than triples the average hospital costs of other patients

V.A.C.® Therapy

Acelity provides a wide range of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) systems for hospital, community or home treatment. Since its launch in 1995, V.A.C.® Therapy has changed the way wounds are treated. Backed by more published clinical evidence than any other NPWT Systems, V.A.C.® Therapy has become the clinicians' treatment of choice for more than 10 million wounds worldwide.* V.A.C.® Therapy creates an environment that promotes wound healing through the application of negative (vacum) pressure at the wound site. This helps to draw wound edges together, remove infectious materials and promote granulation.
