Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Apria helps make healing wounds easier.

Apria is a dedicated provider of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) equipment and supplies to facilitate wound care while at home. NPWT assists in the healing of wounds that occur as a result of damage to the surface of the skin.


Every year, millions of people in the US suffer from chronic wounds that fail to heal. The results can be deterioration of the surrounding tissues, infection, gangrene, and even the need for amputation. Successful wound care is at the center of healing, and allows the individual to get back to full health so they can lead a happy and productive life.


Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) uses a pump to apply gentle suction on the surface of a wound through a foam or gauze dressing placed on the wound. The pump removes dead tissue cells, reduces inflammation, removes bacteria, and increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the wound in order to promote and speed up the healing process.

The most common types of wounds treated with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy are pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, post-surgical wounds, burns, or other wounds developed as a result of a traumatic injury. The proper individualized course of treatment for any serious wounds is determined by your physician.
