Wound Vac Care: Using Vacuum to Heal a Wound
We hope our senior’s golden years are comfortable and convenient as possible. It makes us heartbroken when they are sick or injured. The pain and discomfort take away moments that should be enjoyed.
When our seniors get wounds, the situation can be problematic. For one, their already decreasing body functions can make the healing process longer. Then, the longer the wound stays, the more compromised they are in getting an infection.
One therapy to close the wound is using a vacuum. Vacuum-assisted closure or simply known as VAC uses a device that decreases the air pressure on the wound, improving its healing rate. The therapy drains excess fluid from the wound – keeping the wound in its ideal state of moist and warm. It reduces swelling especially the swelling caused by an infection. With pressure, there is increased blood flow in the wound area.
With such benefits, using a vacuum to speed up wound healing is a smart choice for your senior loved ones. This therapy is provided as part of our home health care in Orlando, Florida.
