Bed Sore Treatment: Wound VAC

Wound Vac TreatmentIn cases involving advanced bed sores (also called: pressure sores, pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers), a wound vac or negative pressure wound therapy can be used to heal the bed sore.  A plastic bandage is used to cover the wound and a tube attached to a vacuum machine draws out moisture. The process can be painful, but the use of wound vacs drastically shorten the healing process and reduce risk of infection.  This is a useful video demonstrating wound vac process.
