S11 - NPWT: Science, Physiological Mechanisms, and Clinical Judgment: How Evidence-Based Algorithms Can Guide Care


Standard: $5.00

Description

The use of sub-atmospheric pressure (Negative Pressure Wound Therapy or NPWT) to promote or assist wound healing is well established in contemporary wound care. Safety issues and clinically effective use are ongoing issues along with cost. This symposium will discuss the evidence base of NPWT, its mechanisms of action, and clinical imperatives. Evidence-based algorithms for NPWT use will be presented.
