Clinicians can select either continuous or intermittent NPWT to tailor the therapy to the clinical needs of their patient.
Although a standard default negative pressure setting of -80mmHg is used, a working negative pressure range from -10mmHg to -180mmHg allows the clinician to tailor the negative pressure applied to the wound to suit individual patient requirements.
The VENTURI Compact is designed for use with both gauze and foam wound care sets. This allows clinicians the flexibility to use the most appropriate wound dressing for their patients.
The VENTURI Compact has an integrated battery and switches seamlessly between either mains or battery power without any interruption to therapy. When fully charged the system operates for a minimum of 24 hours. This provides patients with greater independence and freedom during their treatment.
The intuitive, easy to use pump unit simplifies product set up, operation and training and reduces the potential for user error during treatment.
To ensure optimum product performance and patient treatment a full range of audible and visual alarms cover all common fault conditions including: low vacuum (i.e. leaking dressing), kinked tube, system tilt, full canister, low battery and no canister.
