My work with Negative pressure wound therapy

Updated on January 24, 2011

Who am i and why i write about wound care

I would like to tell you that i have been working daily with negative pressure wound therapy for a total of nine years.

I was one of the first people to use this system in Europe and have worked closely with many different specialists on developing new methods for treating the many different wounds which can be treated with negative pressure.

My work included extended workshops and close contact with many large hospitals in Europe and the USA.

As this technique grew in popularity many large companies developed the machine required to apply the pressure to the wound. This meant that they also built their own training teams to teach nurses and doctors how to use their systems.

As popularity grew my service was naturally required less and less but my knowledge remains one of the best that can be found within this fieldof wound care today.

I know that this is a treatment that will benefit many patients out there and as machines become less expensive more patients will be able to have this treatment and that i think is fantastic.

However, i want to stress that through the years i have seen many mistakes when these dressings are being applied so much so that the treatment can be both wrong and sometimes a danger when being applied to very large wounds/ difficult wounds.

Therefore i have decided to share my knowledge through hubpages and present my work in detail for the many types of wounds which can be treated using this system. This way i may be able to reach out to some of the health workers interested in treating wounds.

This will take me quite some time so i hope that you will save my contact information and visit my hubs regularily.

Eventually i will write a hub on what can go wrong and how to avoid complications.
