PICO Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Smith & Nephew’s latest wound management product is portable and disposable, unlike conventional negative pressure wound therapy systems. Patients can carry the PICO in a pocket and carry it home – it is cleared for use both in a hospital and homecare setting. PICO is indicated for a wide variety of wounds, including chronic, acute and traumatic wounds, subacute and dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic or pressure), flaps and grafts and closed surgical incisions. The PICO system is applied in the same way as a conventional wound dressing, except it is attached to a small one-button pump. The system can be worn on a wound up to a week, depending on the level of exudates. A silicone wound contact layer helps minimize pain at a dressing change.
