C-section

The PICO System may help reduce the risk of surgical site infections (SSIs) and may help improve healing times as part of a comprehensive clinical protocol.

 

 Using a multi-faceted active change process and infection prevention to reduce post-op C-section infections (Clinical poster)

The PICO System makes NPWT use easy in high-risk patients

  • Age ≥ 65
  • Smokers
  • Comorbidities including diabetes, obesity, hypertension, poor vascular status, immuno-compromise
  • Lengthy surgeries
  • Emergency procedures
  • Etiology of the problem

The PICO System has all the effectiveness of NPWT,1,2 simplified

  • Easy to apply, easy to use, easy to wear3 — just dress, press, and go
  • Revolutionary dressing eliminates the need for a canister4
  • Can be worn for up to 7 days, depending on exudate levels, and is disposable
  • Creates a bacteria barrier and is waterproof
  • Silicone adhesive is gentle on surrounding tissue
  • Significantly reduces cost of therapy5
  • Available off-the-shelf — no waiting for pumps to be found and delivered
  • Facilitates the removal of infectious materials

PICO makes it possible
