Constant Low Vacuum Wound Drainage System
Pre-vacuumed Closed Wound Drainage Systems.
LVS NG – a unique wound drainage solution. All the benefits of pre-vacuumed wound drains, now with low vacuum. Available in 600ml, 400ml and 200ml sizes.
Constant suction – whilst intermittent suction can disturb and delay tissue healing, constant suction ensures improved tissue approximation and helps the wound to heal
Easy to use – the system is pre-vacuumed. Just open the clamp to initiate vacuum. No need to re-activate like some complex bellows-type systems, therefore reducing nursing time
Low vacuum – lower vacuum (100 ± 25mmHg) may help reduce fluid loss when compared with high vacuum systems. This is good news for the patient and may mean fewer replacement bottles
Regulating valve – the valve stays with the patient. If you need to replace the bottle, simply choose any Summit high vacuum system and the valve will ensure a low vacuum is achieved. Reducing stock of additional replacement bottle codes
Cost effective – by replacing your current bellows system with LVS NG you will be getting all of the clinical benefits of constant suction, at a low vacuum, with a cost effective device
Infection Control – this is a closed system which requires less handling than your current bellows system. A clear benefit in the fight against ward infection
