  1. Prepare the wound according to local clinical practice.
  2. Select an appropriate dressing size for the wound. Ensure that the surrounding skin is clean and dry.
  3. Remove the dressing from the pouch using an aseptic technique.
  4. If the dressing needs to be cut, use an aseptic technique. Any opened, unused dressing should be discarded.
  5. Moisten the dressing with sterile saline.
  6. Fluff up one or more dressings and fill the cavity and ensure that the dressing is in direct contact with the entire wound surface. If more than one piece of dressing is used, check that all pieces are in direct contact with each other to ensure an even distribution of negative pressure. Count the pieces of dressing used and record the total in the patient’s records.
  7. Ensure that the wound filler has no direct contact with intact skin.
  8. Proceed as directed for the NPWT system used.
  9. The pressure level should be set according to the physician’s instruction and be based on indication and wound condition. .
