Today, V.A.C. Therapy is used across a spectrum of health care settings, from acute care facilities to ambulatory surgical centers, assisted living facilities, and in patients’ homes. In the U.S., V.A.C. Therapy is available with 24/7 remote therapy monitoring to support adherence to the therapy. 3M’s NPWT portfolio continuously evolves to meet clinician and patient needs. Last year, 3M launched the first-ever silicone-acrylic hybrid drape for use with V.A.C. Therapy, the 3M™ Dermatac™ Drape, an innovation designed to be gentle on patients’ skin and easy for clinicians to use.
“Today’s wound care patients are often sicker and have more comorbidities, making their wounds more complex to treat and increasing the demands on clinicians’ time. 3M strives to provide a robust tool selection to address clinicians’ unique wound care needs and make our products easier to use to help save their valuable time — and ultimately, help transform outcomes and improve lives for wound care patients,” said Dr. Silverman.
