Adaptable Consumables

Adaptable consumables

A simplified range of consumables to meet your patients’ needs

Complex choices in tNPWT consumables can present usage and procurement challenges in the healthcare system. RENASYS tNPWT’s Soft Port, foam and gauze range facilitates tailored therapy, with comfort and versatility, in treating challenging wounds.  

Soft port

 Featuring a soft, cushioned channel to help enhance patient comfort, compared to a hard port,1,2 and capable of delivering therapy even when kinked, twisted or squashed.3 

Convenient and fast – simplified dressing application with the same technique across various wound types; shown to be faster than traditional hard port dressings.1,3 

Effective – Designed to be very resistant to blockages caused by kinks, twists or compression.2,3

Versatile – Can be applied to awkward body contours such as elbows, knees, heels and hips,3 with minimal pain on application and removal.2,3

 May reduce the need for bridging techniques,2,3 with 84% of clinicians rating it easier to apply than hard port alternatives.3 76% of clinicians rates it easier to remove.3

Foam and gauze

Evidence has demonstrated that overall healing rates* are similar with both foam and gauze.  

 RENASYS-F Polyurethane Foam features an open cell structure and hydrophobic material properties to allow efficient fluid management.4

 RENASYS-G Gauze is effective in wounds with low to moderate drainage, absorbing and retaining fluid through hydrophilic fibres. Not for use on wounds with high levels of exudate, unless paired with a drain.4

Factors to consider when selecting an appropriate filler4

Drains

RENASYS Drain Kits are designed to enhance treatment and facilitate exudate removal from complex wounds, with a practical silicone construction and radiopaque strip for visualisation under x-ray.4

 Multipurpose drain, suitable for a wide range of wound types. Particularly effective in shallow wounds, it must be positioned flat and cannot be curled.4

 Non-hollow, non-perforated to prevent tissue adherence. Suitable for use in sinus tracts, narrow wounds and wounds with tunnelling/undermining.4

 10FR and 19FR drains are suitable for deep wounds, areas of undermining and wounds with copious exudate.4

AB abdominal kit

 The RENASYS AB Abdominal Dressing Kit with Soft Port supports management of the open abdomen,5 with components to achieve safe and effective temporary abdominal closure 6

  • Shown to achieve a high rate of fascial closure and a relatively low complication rate6
  • In a study, 65% of patients achieved fascial closure in an average of 3 days6
  • RENASYS AB was shown to be as effective as ABTHERA™, with comparable levels of fluid management and removal**7
