At Attis Healthcare, our goal is to improve patient care and enable better patient outcomes while reducing the cost of care. That’s why we are passionate about wound care and the development of wound care products that make a difference for the patient. Our wound therapy team brings together over 40 years of experience in the treatment and development of innovative wound care modalities.

HEALING WOUNDS WITH NEGATIVE PRESSURE WOUND THERAPY

Over the span of a century, researchers and clinicians have described improved wound healing with adjunctive Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT). In practice, the benefits and goals of removing excessive exudate from purulent wounds through vacuum assisted drainage have grown to include:

  • Reduction of painful dressing changes
  • Increased blood flow
  • Maintenance of a moist wound environment
  • Establishment of fluid balance
  • Reduction of edema
  • Increased growth factors
  • Positive effects on leukocytes and fibroblasts
  • Removal of slough
  • Improved wound stability
  • Prevention of maceration

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.

In general, there is increased dialogue among wound care specialists about:

  • The use of lower negative pressure settings than traditionally applied
  • The use of different pressure recommendations for different types of tissue
  • The potential benefits of using variable pressure therapy and intermittent pressure therapy protocols versus continuous therapy
  • The potential benefits of reducing dressing pain by reducing granulation ingrowth

OPTIMIZING PATIENT OUTCOMES WITH PROSPERA PRO WOUND PUMPS

The Prospera PRO series of negative pressure wound therapy systems is designed to advance the art and science of NPWT for clinicians and patients. The PRO-II™ and PRO-III™ are engineered specifically for use with NPWT and provide ease of use and flexibility for clinicians, lead to cost effective outcomes and put the needs of patients first.
