The 800cc cannister allows easier accomodation of heavily exudating wounds. The Prospera PRO-II™ features the same benefits as the larger PRO-I™ with the added benefit of easy portability.
The integrated 250cc cannister assures that exudate remains concealed allowing the user to move about with confidence.
Only use modified compression for ABI between 0.5-0.7.
Exudate plays an essential role in moist wound healing.
Designed to minimize adherence to the wound and manage exudate.Over the span of a century, researchers and clinicians have described improved wound healing with adjunctive NPWT.In practice, the benefits and goals of removing excessive exudate from purulent wounds through vacuum assisted drainage have grown to include: Recent research and expanding clinical experience aim to more fully explain the underlying mechanisms by which NPWT confers its benefits, and to optimize treatment protocols.They generally work well for wounds with small amounts of exudate, but they can stick to the wound bed of heavily exudative wounds or expose the wound to the outside environment.When removing dry dressings that appear stuck to the wound bed, it is helpful to pour some normal saline over the area to moisten the dressing for easier removal.
