Wound vac is a negative pressure suction using a sponge and occlusive draping to cover a wound to achieve accelerated healing. Wound vacs should only be placed on healthy red granulation tissue. Wound vac care and treatment in most cases is a simple procedure, but some cases require advanced skills and training to achieve desired results. Many wounds needing accelerating healing may need bridges, Y connectors, dressing separation and possible peri wound protection among other things. Healing wounds with a wound vac requires seeing your wound care team 2 to 3 times week for wound assessment, debridement and dressing changes.
Yukon Wound Care and Rehabilitations team of providers have over 25 years of experience in wound care and wound vac treatment. Our experience gives us advanced skills allowing us to think outside the box of traditional wound care and wound vac treatment. Beth verbalized, “This team gives a unique approach to wound care and vac treatment, not a cookie cutter approach applying the same steps and technique gained in initial training without regard for each person’s unique differences. They look and treat each person’s healing process, disease and body different.”
Our wound care patients get scheduling priority over other patients because wounds are very serious and get dangerous quickly. Scheduling is usually same day or the next day in most cases.
