Introduction to PICO
Approved for use on acute wounds, chronic wounds and surgical incisions.
Proprietary, silicone-based, four-layer technology uniquely manages wound fluid by simultaneously evaporating and locking it away, keeping excess moisture away from the wound and periwound area.1 No need for a canister!
Expansion of NPWT benefits beyond the wound site by providing compression to the periwound area, which may help reduce edema and improve perfusion.2
Evaporation: On average 80% of the fluid is evaporated
Absorption: Approximately 20% of fluid is locked inside the dressing, away from the skin
PICO is appropriate for:
- Acute wounds
- Chronic wounds
- Closed surgical incisions
- Traumatic wounds
- Sub-acute and dehisced wounds
- Flaps and grafts
- Partial-thickness burns
- Ulcers – diabetic, pressure, leg
