How Many Cc Of Wound Fluid Can Be Sucked NPWT (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy)?
Excuse me, I want to ask about how much (cc / ml) wound fluid should be suctioned when using NPWT?
Hello Fikri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
NPWT (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy) is a system of closed wound care that is used to treat chronic wounds (old wounds) and also new wounds that are being infected. This wound care system can provide several benefits such as:
The length of stay is shorter
Less frequent dressing changes
Increasing quality of life
The wound care system itself requires certain tools, materials and procedures to do so, where in general suctioning of wound fluid in this system is done every 5 minutes interspersed with stopping suctioning for 2 minutes. For the amount of liquid that can be aspirated by itself there is no specific number stated, in general the amount depends on the capacity of the NPWT device.
If you have difficulty using the NPWT tool, it is highly recommended to consult further with a doctor who recommends the wound care system.
I hope this helps.
