Local Wound Care of Glendale is proud to offer Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), a sophisticated treatment that utilizes sub-atmospheric pressure to promote wound healing. NPWT is particularly effective for chronic and acute wounds, playing a pivotal role in our comprehensive wound care approach.

What is Negative Pressure Wound Therapy?

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy involves applying a vacuum through a special dressing placed over the wound. This vacuum effectively draws out excess fluid, reduces swelling, and improves blood flow to the area, thereby facilitating a conducive environment for wound healing.

The Benefits of NPWT

NPWT offers numerous advantages in wound care, including:

  • Accelerated Healing Rates: By enhancing blood circulation to the wound area, NPWT speeds up the healing process.
  • Reduced Risk of Infection: By removing excess fluids and reducing edema, NPWT lowers the risk of wound infections.
  • Enhanced Tissue Regeneration: Improved blood flow encourages the formation of granulation tissue, vital for wound healing.
  • Decreased Healing Time: Patients often experience shorter healing times with NPWT compared to traditional wound care methods.

Appropriate Wounds for Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

This therapy is particularly beneficial for:

  • Chronic Wounds such as diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, and pressure ulcers.
  • Acute Wounds including surgical wounds and trauma wounds.
  • Wounds with large amounts of drainage or those requiring a controlled healing environment.

Our Approach to NPWT in Glendale

At Local Wound Care of Glendale, our approach to NPWT is patient-centric and involves:

  • Thorough Evaluation: Our team conducts a comprehensive assessment to determine if NPWT is suitable for the patient’s wound.
  • Customized Treatment Planning: We tailor the NPWT settings and duration to the specific needs of each wound.
  • Expert Application: Our skilled professionals ensure the NPWT dressing is applied correctly and comfortably.
  • Ongoing Monitoring: We regularly assess the wound’s response to NPWT and adjust the treatment plan as necessary.

Combined Treatments for Enhanced Outcomes

NPWT is often used in conjunction with other treatment modalities, such as advanced wound dressings or debridement, to enhance healing outcomes.  Our multidisciplinary team collaborates to integrate NPWT into a comprehensive treatment plan.
