KCI Wound V.A.C.® and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – A Clinical Practice Guideline 2

This essentially is a re-post of the KCI Wound V.A.C. Clinical guidelines.  The KCI Clinical guidelines are 116 pages (Sorry for the long download).  You find the Hyperbaric specific guidelines on pages 15 & 102 of the document.  There are some NEW changes from the old clinical guidelines; One change in particular calls for the VAC tubing to be wrapped in a moist towel throughout the entire HBO treatment (page 15), there is additional information on page 102 regarding HBOT and Wound VAC as well. 

I have also linked a 4 page “VAC Therapy Safety Information” sheet with the same information on HBOT and VAC (page3).  Hope this is helpful to all of you.
