Use of Renasys™ Gauze and Port to simplify negative pressure dressing techniques

The development of simpler dressing techniques is crucial if the field of wound care is to evolve further. Over the past decade, the use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been part of this evolution. The introduction of gauze-based negative therapy has resulted in a major change in the type of interface used to treat wounds. Such gauze dressings can be applied to a wide variety of wounds that due to their location, extent and level of exudate would be difficult to manage with foam dressings. In addition to gauze dressings, the Port drainage system offers a simpler method of providing suction.
