The MedVac™ 300 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is a portable, battery-powered pump intended to generate negative pressure or suction to remove wound exudates, infectious material, and tissue debris from the wound bed which may promote wound healing. The MedVac™ 300 system consists of one pump and one AC power cable. Wound dressings, additional canisters (with 140ml, 400ml and 600ml options), carrying cases, and other accessories are sold separately. The MedVac™ 300 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy, when used with the proprietary wound dressing, creates a negative pressure environment.
The MedVac™ 300 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy and the wound dressing are able to produce a negative pressure environment in continuous or intermittent mode. This allows the user to program the specific pressure ranging from -20mmHg to -300mmHg. In continuous mode, the pressure is applied to the wound as long as the pump is powered on. In intermittent mode, the pump will alternate between applying default pressure for 5 continuous minutes and releasing pressure for 2 minutes.
