    How does it work?

    The extriCARE® NPWT system consists of an extriCARE® 2400 or 3600 unit, a 110cc,400cc, or 1000cc canister, and wound dressings. The dressing is applied to the wound and attached to the therapy device using the tubing. The device then draws the excess fluid and wound exudates into the canister while the dressing creates a negative pressure environment around the wound. The device may also work to improve blood flow to the area which may help expedite the wound healing process.

    How long does it take for the wound to heal?

    Wound healing time is different for every patient because it relies on a variety of different factors including the patient’s health, the size, type, and location of the wound, and the treatment the patient has been prescribed. In most cases, an improvement may be seen after the first dressing change, but your nurse or doctor can assess the progress of your wound at each dressing change. For more information on wound healing time, read some of our case studies.

    When should the canister be changed?

    When it becomes filled, an alarm sounds, or at least twice a week, even if not full.
    NOTE: Medicare and most insurance providers reimburse up to 10 canisters per month.

    How often should the dressings be changed?

    We recommend changing the dressings at a minimum of every 72 hours, but this may change accordingly for each patient. If you are using foam dressings we recommend that these be changed every 48 hours. But again, your nurse or doctor should evaluate this on a case by case basis.

    How long does the battery last in the extriCARE®?

    When fully charged, the battery for the extriCARE® 2400 has 30 hour life and the battery life for the extriCARE® 3600 has a 24 hour life under normal operating conditions.

    Can a lymphedema compression pump be used in conjunction with the extriCARE®?

    Yes. Many times they will be used as an adjunct treatment for the edema and to assist with wound healing.
