A new method for wound management, vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) is a technique that applies negative pressure to a wound bed through a porous, open-cell foam that fills the wound cavity. Its advantages include rapid wound healing, reduced pain, shorter hospital stays, lower medical costs, and fewer nursing responsibilities. It can also be used with patients suffering from multiple wounds. The tool may be used to address wounds that are appearing more frequently now that technological advancements are prolonging the lives of elderly patients. Reducing costs associated with wound treatments is therefore becoming an increasingly important issue in health care.
