Fifty-patient evaluation of the Venturi™ NPWT device

Undertaking an evaluation of a new product is an essential part of the decision-making process when considering implementing a new therapy or dressing. This project describes a process whereby clinicians can undertake this in a structured manner providing them with data on outcomes and cost. It involves completing an evaluation form, in which an initial patient and wound assessment is undertaken, followed by recording the outcome of each dressing changed. This information is then collated and analysed, giving the evaluation site access to a structured report which they may use to support the decision-making process.
