BENNY HINN: BIENVENIDO ESPIRITU SANTO PDF
The present invention relates generally to the treatment of wounds, and more particularly to apparatus for the application of negative pressure to a wound in order to enhance wound healing.
The stimulation of a wound or site of a surgical incision for the purpose of promoting healing is generally accepted. Various devices have been used or proposed to achieve such stimulation. A “forced air” system has often been used, in which the negative pressure air is delivered through a porous sponge or the like. This type of device has many disadvantages, such as a tendency to clog with dust and other particulates, and a rather short life. A “sock” type device has also been used, but this type is quite bulky, uncomfortable and difficult to maintain. A “fluid” flow system has also been proposed, utilizing an infusion pump or the like to administer fluids to the wound at a prescribed rate. While this type system does not require a spongy porous material, it is quite cumbersome, and it is difficult to regulate the rate of infusion.
Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment system which is portable and which overcomes the problems of prior systems.
It is another object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment apparatus which is thin and which is comfortable to wear and use.
It is yet another object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment apparatus that is capable of rapid and efficient cleaning and maintenance.
It is still another object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment apparatus which is capable of delivering negative pressure to the wound for a long period of time without requiring frequent changing of the positive pressure control.
It is a further object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment apparatus capable of delivering positive and negative pressure to a wound over a long period of time without either the need for frequent changing of the system, or the use of a multi-chamber dressing.
It is yet a further object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment system which is substantially sealed to the skin surrounding the wound and in contact with the wound, to prevent contamination of the wound.
It is a still further object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment system which is capable of transporting multiple doses of drugs to the wound at relatively rapid rates.
It is an even further object of the present invention to provide a wound treatment system which is capable of applying a vacuum to a wound
