This therapy can be used trough negative topic pression in both acute and chronical cutanic lesions at home and also in the hospital. To make an appropriate strategy, attention must be paid in evaluating the patient and his/her wounds. First of all the management of tne tissue is necessary, to control inflammation and infection, and the progress of epithelialization and to maintain the fluid balance. The application of a topic negative pression to a lesion accelerates the speed of tissue neoformation and reduces nursery community care system timing and hospitalization time as well. Important are the patient’s compliance, the support of the care giver and the training of the sanitary personnel for a correct management of the equipment.
