The PICO Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System consists of a pump and two sterile dressing kits. The PICO pump maintains negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) at 80 mmHg (nominal) +/- 20 mmHg to the wound surface. Exudate is managed by the dressing through a combination of absorption and evaporation of moisture through the outer film.Chronic
Subacute and dehisced wounds
Ulcers (such as diabetic or pressure)
Flaps and grafts
Closed surgical incisions
PICO is intended for use in wound sizes (surface area x depth) up to 400 cm3 which are considered to be low to moderately exuding.
The kit is intended to be used for a maximum of 7 days on low exuding wounds and 6 days on moderately exuding wounds. Therapy duration of the kit may be less than indicated if clinical practice or other factors such as wound type, wound size, rate or volume of exudate, orientation of the dressing or environmental conditions, result in more frequent dressing changes.
Instructions for Use:
PICO is indicated for patients who would benefit from a suction device (negative pressure wound therapy) as it may promote wound healing via removal of low to moderate levels of exudate and infectious materials.
Examples of appropriate wound types include:
PICO Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System is suitable for use both in a hospital and homecare setting.
