The vacuum system subjects the dressing (usually made with a sponge or gauze) to negative pressure, which continuously removes secretions and necrotic debris from the cavity, substantially improving wound cleansing and quickening the healing process.
In principle, the technique is simple: a wet gauze or an open-cell sponge is placed in the wound cavity together with a drainage tube with numerous side holes at the end. Then the entire area is covered with a transparent self-adhesive membrane, which adheres to the healthy skin around the edges of the wound so that the entire wound cavity is airtight.
The other end of the drainage tube is connected to an adjustable vacuum source (-25 / – 250 mmHg), interposing a reservoir in the circuit where the drained secretions are collected. The gauze or sponge ensures that the entire wound surface is uniformly exposed to the effect of negative pressure, preventing the tube holes from clogging up in contact with the tissues.

Because of its ability to remove secretions, the system greatly reduces the frequency of dressings, especially in infected or exudating wounds in which the traditional dressing with gauze and plaster is quickly soaked with material and pus.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
