INFOV.A.C.™ System is an advanced therapy system that promotes wound healing. Physicians can prescribe negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for numerous traumatic and chronic wound patients. The INFOV.A.C.™ System is designed for hospital use.
• A proper seal helps provide accurate delivery of prescribed therapy for wound healing
• Full-color user interface with intuitive touch screen controls for simplified navigation
• With pre-programmed settings by wound type, clinicians can initiate therapy quickly
• Audio and visual cues are delivered in real-time for easier location of dressing leaks
• New IV pole and bedside positioning capabilities and single-hand canister removal
• Information can be downloaded to a variety of media for easy analysis
• Physicians can view wound images at anytime for greater flexibility
• Digital wound image feature helps wound progress assessment
• Document patient compliance with V.A.C.® Therapy
• Intuitive control functions make it easier to use
When used on open wounds, the INFOV.A.C.™ System is intended to create an environment that promotes wound healing by secondary or tertiary (delayed primary) intention by preparing the wound bed for closure, reducing edema, promoting granulation tissue formation and perfusion and by removing exudate and infectious material. Open wound types include: chronic, acute, traumatic, subacute and dehisced wounds, partial-thickness burns, ulcers (such as diabetic, pressure or venous insufficiency), flaps and grafts.
When used on closed surgical incisions, they are also intended to manage the environment of surgical incisions that continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure by maintaining a closed environment and removing exudates via the application of negative pressure wound therapy.
The intended use for the subject devices has been expanded to include closed surgical incisions.

Applying the Dressing: Cut the foam to fit the size and shape of the wound, including tunnels and undermined areas. Do not place foam over intact tissue. Do not cut foam directly over wound. Make a note in the patient's record and on the drape as to the number of foam pieces used in the wound. Dressing change time, date and number of foam pieces can also be logged using the log tool that is accessed from the Therapy Start Screen. Trim the drape to cover the foam, plus 3-5cm border of intact skin. Pinch drape and cut a 2cm hole through the drape. Apply the Pad opening directly over hole in the drape. Do not just cut a slit in the drape.
IMPORTANT: As with any prescription medical device, failure to consult a physician and carefully read and follow all therapy unit and dressing instructions and safety information prior to each use may lead to improper product performance and the potential for serious or fatal injury. Do not adjust therapy unit settings or perform therapy applications without direction from and/or supervision by a health care professional. Detailed instructions and safety information are provided with the therapy unit and in the dressing cartons.
To install canister, slide canister into right side of therapy unit and push canister firmly into place. To connect the dressing tubing to the canister tubing, push the tubing connectors together and twist clockwise. Open clamps on both sides of tubing before turning therapy on. To remove canister, turn therapy off. Close clamps on both sides of tubing. To disconnect the dressing tubing from the canister tubing, twist the tubing connectors counterclockwise. Press the Canister Release button. Lift to remove canister. Dispose of canister according to hospital or facility protocol.
Press and hold the Power On/Off button for approximately two seconds to turn the unit on/off. Press On/Off to start/stop therapy, Default settings are 125mmHg and Continuous Therapy. Once started, "Therapy Start" screen appears, allowing access to SEAL CHECK™ and Item Log tool.
Unit is preset to "Clinician Mode". To access "Patient Mode" press the question mark icon for the help screen. Select "Patient Mode." Press "OK" button for 3 seconds. Repeat process to access "Clinician Mode."
Select "Settings" in Therapy screen to access Pressure, Intensity and Continuous/Intermittent Therapy settings. To adjust "Pressure," use arrow keys to set from 25mmHg to 200mmHg in increments of 25mmHg. For Intermittent Therapy, use the arrow keys to increase or decrease On/Off settings between 1 and 10 minutes.
Attaching the INFOV.A.C.™ Therapy Unit to an IV Pole
Before pulling out the Hanger Arm, the Arm must be in the horizontal position. Hold the INFOV.A.C.™ Therapy Unit by the carry handle. Grip the Hanger Knob and pull the Hanger Arm out. Place the Hanger around the IV pole, ensuring that the pole is in the vertical rubber groove on the rear of the INFOV.A.C.™ Therapy Unit. Allow the Hanger to close, pulling the unit onto the pole. Turn the Hanger Knob clockwise to lock the Hanger Arm in place. When the lock symbol on the Hanger Knob aligns with the arrow on the Therapy Unit, this indicates that the mechanism is locked. An audible click also indicates that the mechanism is locked.
