Negative pressure wound therapy for partial-thickness burns
There is not enough evidence regarding the use of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for treating partial thickness burn wounds.
Treatments for burns include a variety of dressings, but newer strategies such as negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) have been developed to try to promote the wound healing process and minimise burn wound progression. NPWT uses a suction force to drain excess fluids from the burn. This review assesses the effectiveness of NPWT for people with partial thickness burns.
