Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, NPWT, or vacuum assisted closure (VAC) is a wound healing technique that helps in expediting the wound healing process. NPWT is a technique that began gaining prominence during the turn of the 20th century and has now become a part of wound care around the world. The use of vacuum to remove exudate, slough, and contaminants helps in increasing the healing speed as well as reducing the time needed for extra wound care.
