    Vacuum-Assisted Closure (VAC) Wound Therapy Devices

    Vacuum-assisted closure (VAC), also called negative pressure wound therapy, is a method of drawing out fluid and bacteria from a wound by decreasing air pressure around it to help it heal. A special bandage is sealed over the wound and a gentle vacuum pump is attached via tubing. VAC therapy can aid a wound in healing faster and with less risk of infection by reducing swelling, removing microbes, and stimulating the growth of new tissue.

    CPC Fluid Transfer Capabilities Help Heal Wounds Effectively

    A healthcare provider fits layers of foam dressing to the shape of the wound and seals the dressing with a film. The film has an opening where a tube is attached via CPC non-spill connectors and disconnectors. The tube leads to a vacuum pump and canister where fluids are collected. Once connected, the vacuum pump pulls fluid and bacteria from the wound. This helps pull the edges of the wound together and promotes the growth of new tissue.

    CPC Non-Spill Connectors Offered in a Variety of Options to Meet the Needs of VAC Wound Therapy Applications

    NS1 Series Connectors

    • Smallest plastic non-spill coupling on the market

    Non-spill Connectors from CPC Enhance Wound Therapy Safety

    CPC drip-free disconnect couplings feature non-spill valves in a variety of configurations―providing options no matter what size of tubing is used by vacuum-assisted wound closure therapy. When even a few drops of extracted wound fluid pose safety concerns, CPC non-spill connectors are the answer. These innovative couplings are lightweight, chemically resistant and easy to use. Engineered to effectively eliminate spills, CPC non-spill couplings and connectors minimize VAC system wound dressing changes and enhance healthcare provider safety. Intuitive interfaces and user-friendly, ergonomic designs enable a secure, reliable connection each and every time.

    Trusted Reliability

    CPC couplings are purpose-built for VAC wound therapy applications. They help keep fluids collected by the vacuum pump from spilling and help ensure that the entire VAC can be counted on to work as designed. User-friendly, easy-to-use, ergonomic designs improve usability and eliminate misconnections.

    Dependable Durability

    CPC non-spill connectors deliver optimized flowrates with excellent flow-to-size ratio for superior performance. Featuring non-spill, closed-system designs, CPC couplings ensure mess-free, drip-free functionality necessary for vacuum-assisted wound closure applications.

    Overall Robustness

    CPC offers a wide range of non-spill couplings that are compatible with the VAC wound therapy systems on the market today. CPC non-spill, quick disconnect couplings are designed to provide a seamless and safe fluid handling solution. All CPC non-spill connectors are rigorously tested ─ including materials testing, product testing and torture testing to failure ─ to meet product specifications.

    Straightforward Serviceability

    When wound therapy devices need vacuum pump repair or for wound dressing changes, CPC streamlined design ensures intuitive and rapid disconnections. Designed to ease replacement when wound dressings need to be changed, CPC non-spill connectors ensure safer and quicker operation. The simple-to-use thumb latch provides both ease and speed of tubing reconnection.

    Connection Assurance

    CPC non-spill connectors help make a cleaner, faster and safer connection with VAC wound therapy devices. Quality connectors from CPC ensure a secure fit in even the most demanding applications. The non-spill coupling design allows tubing to rotate freely when connected, preventing both kinked tubing and accidental disconnection during use.

    Assurance of Supply

    CPC has a proven track record of providing products that meet difficult specifications and quality requirements through having a strong supply assurance program. The program includes control of the manufacturing process from raw materials to final product manufacturing. Investments in extra capacity and redundant manufacturing ensure capacity when it’s needed. Medical customers have confidence in CPC’s ability to fulfill demand and a track record of accurate lead times, and most importantly, by sound supply chain management.
