The Cardinal Health SVED Wound Vac provides Negative Pressure Wound Therapy for patients treated in an acute, extended or home care setting. The NPWT SVED Device provides controlled vacuuming for wound care to remove exudate, body fluids, and infectious materials to encourage faster-wound healing. Specialized foam dressings are applied over the wound connected to the system to facilitate negative pressure for the transfer of fluids into the canister. Use only compatible Cardinal Health NPWT dressings, consumables and replacement parts, including carry case, AC adapter, polyurethane drape, and canister. This wound therapy is specified for chronic, acute, partial-thickness burns, diabetic and pressure ulcers and skin grafts. This device must be used with compatible Cardinal Health accessories, including Foam Dressing Kits, Drape, and NPWT Canister.
It is designed to be portable being both lightweight and battery-powered to allow the SVED NPWT Device (Cardinal Health 6701132) to be held when the patient needs to be mobile. With a fully charged battery, the SVED will provide up to 18 hours of therapy in a single charge. When battery life is low, a light will flash and a chirp will sound to indicate when it's time to charge. Its quiet operation lends to easier implementation of therapy since Negative Pressure Wound Therapy is administered 22 hours a day. Cardinal recommends for the caregiver to change the dressing every 48 to 72 hours, and more frequently when the wound is infected. A dressing change may be needed when the therapy stops before the 22-hour therapy duration.
The Negative Pressure Wound Therapy SVED Device is easy to use with its simple interface. The pressure settings are changed by pressing one of three buttons and may be locked to prevent tampering. The therapy is often used in conjunction with simultaneous wound irrigation which adds fluids to the wound bed for the negative pressure wound therapy to clear away the fluids and debris.
SVED Care & Cleaning
Cardinal recommends cleaning the SVED once a week for the current patient and in between each patient. Caregiver cleaning the device must wear gloves, eyewear, mask, and disposable gown. Always disconnect the unit from the patient and power source. Prepare a diluted solution of 1-quart of water and 1-teaspoon of bleach. Damp a cloth with the solution and clean all surfaces of the SVED, including the A.C adapter cord. Use a dry cloth to remove any bleach residue. While cleaning, inspect all parts for any damage and replace if needed.
Foam Dressing Application
- Cleanse and debride the wound.
- Examine the wound bed to locate blood vessels or delicate tissues since dressing can't be placed over exposed blood vessels or organs.
- Cleanse and dry around the wound to prepare skin for the polyurethane drape.
- Depending on wound dimensions, select the best foam dressing size
- Cut the black foam dressing to fit the entire wound base. The black foam should be higher than the skin level. Do not pack the wound, deeper wounds will require stacking of the foam.
- When the wound needs extra protection in case of a bone protrusion, the white foam dressing is placed underneath a black foam dressing.
- Remove the polyurethane drape. Size and trim the drape leaving a 3-5cm border.
- Using Tab A remove the drape's release liner. Invert and place over the foam and remove Tab B and C.
- Remove the remaining perforated tab and gently press drape material around the wound to ensure a proper seal.
- Cut a 1 cm hole at the top of the drape.
- Remove tubing from the dressing kit and peel away adhesive attached to the SpeedConnect tubing and place at on the hole created.
