The Blue Sky device is kinda scetchy to me. From what I understand, they have no clinical studies to support their product and use KCI literature. The devices are not the same, so why are they using the same literature. The device has no alarms on it, well how do you know if you keep your seal. I would try the KCI product first.

Have you used the new Bluesky device? Does it work? How does it compare with the VAC?

Another option for localized negative pressure is BlueSky Medical. They have a low cost product that they sell for $3850 versus high rental costs. They can be reached at http://www.blueskymedical.com or 760-727-1477 in USA

ARE YOU WORKING WITH A WOUND CARE CLINIC OR SPECIALIST? DO YOU HAVE A SPECIALITY MATTRESS IN PLACE TO AID IN HEALING OF THIS WOUND AND PREVENTION OF FURTHER WOUNDS? IF THE WOUND IS CLEAN(PINK TISSUE), THIS SOUNDS LIKE A TRIAL OF THE VAC SYSTEM BY KCI MIGHT BE WORTH A TRY. THE VAC SYSTEM IS A NEGATIVE PRESSURE DRESSING THAT HAS AMAZING RESULTS IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES I HAVE SEEN. IT USES SUCTION TO DRAW WOUND DRAINAGE AWAY FROM THE WOUND AND BY INCREASING BLOOD FLOW TO THE WOUND CAUSING INCREASED HEALING. IT ALSO DECREASES CAREGIVING TIME BECAUSE THE DRESSING NEEDS TO BE CHANGE THREE TIMES PER WEEK IN MOST CASES. GOOD LUCK WITH WHATEVER OPTION YOU CHOOSE AND DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR MORE. TO INQUIRE ABOUT THE VAC SYSTEM CONTACT KCI AT 1-888-ASK-4KCI OR ONLINE AT WWW.KCI1.COM

IMHO i think your doctor is right track with this therapy. Muscle transplant might be the quickest way to cure the wound. Before surgery the wound needs to be clean and healty. There are several ways to do this. A succesfull way to prepare the wound for surgery is using 'negative pressure therapy'. But I think it's best to discuss all this with your doctor, trust him in this matter. I whish you all the best and hope the wound of your son will be cured soon.

I am new to the wound care family. My son is 18 yrs old and Spina-Bifida with a level 4 wound on his left buttock. He has had a failed skin graft and suture surgery with debridement leaving a very down to the bone now wound. His doctor wants to do a muscle transplant. I want somoe info on this type of surgery before I say okay.....HELP. His wound is now dying and smells, we are using Alginate dressing and prayers. Is his Dr on the right track with this surgery at this pointF? Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
