The aim of this evaluation is to assess the performance of the EZCare◊ product, in many different clinical environments, in order to gain a greater insight into the effects of this negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) in a variety of wound types.
Patients meeting the eligibility criteria and agreeing to consent to their participation in the evaluation will receive treatment with the evaluation product for a maximum of 10 dressing changes or up to a maximum of 30 days treatment with the EZCare◊ product, whichever comes first. Treatment will commence on Day 0 and dressing changes will take place as deemed appropriate by the Clinician responsible for the patient, however it is recommended that the dressing is changed at least every 3 days in accordance with the product instructions for use.
Treatment will stop when, in the opinion of the Clinician, sufficient wound progress has taken place to merit a change in treatment regime i.e. surgical intervention (e.g. graft) or the use of more traditional dressings. Treatment with the evaluation product will not proceed past 30 days.
Patients will be treated with a pressure setting of between 40mmHg and 80mmHg for the duration of treatment.
A follow up wound assessment will take place 7 days post treatment discontinuation.
If required, debridement may be performed prior to and during the patients participation in this evaluation.

Hypotheses: (1)Wound healing during hospital stay will be equal between systems, (2)RNs will perceive the Versatile One (EZCare) system as easier to use, (3)Costs related to dressing chang...
The purpose of this study is to assess the difference in the percent reduction in wound surface area, without surgery, of chronic pressure ulcers of the pelvic region for Negative Pressure...
Difficult to heal wounds are a common and complex medical problem, causing suffer to the patients and challenging medical, social and economic burden on the health system. Based on data fr...
The current standard for negative pressure wound therapy is the Vacuum Assisted Closure Device (VAC), a commercial system that utilizes a computerized suction pump to apply negative pressu...
The worldwide prevalence of open wounds is estimated to be approximately 200 million per year. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT), the application of a controlled vacuum to an open wou...
Optimal wound healing with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) relies on a properly sealed vacuum system. Anatomically difficult wounds impair the adhesive dressing, which results in air leaks that...
A new proprietary negative pressure wound device has been developed to apply negative pressure therapy to closed wounds (Closed-NPWT). We postulated that Closed-NPWT management of contaminated and dir...
Negative-pressure wound therapy has been widely adopted to reduce the complexity of treating a broad range of acute and chronic wounds. However, its cost is high. The objective of this study was to ev...
This study aims to conduct a cost-minimization analysis comparing wound treatment costs between single-use negative pressure wound therapy (sNPWT) and traditional negative pressure wound therapy (tNPW...
Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a life-threatening condition in which rapid diagnosis, debridement of nonviable tissue, and broad-spectrum antibiotics are critical to effective treatment. The debridemen...
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
Head injuries which feature compromise of the skull and dura mater. These may result from gunshot wounds (WOUNDS, GUNSHOT), stab wounds (WOUNDS, STAB), and other forms of trauma.
Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
