The system features AirLock technology and includes an integrated Y extension that allows for two dressings to be used from one pump to allow for two wounds to be treated at the same time.
Pico 7Y also features extended soft port and multisite dressings that are designed to conform to different body parts. The system is suitable on multiple wounds like breast surgical procedures. The sNPWT system comes with a check dressing indicator that reduces unnecessary dressing changes and waste. It is 23% quieter than Smith & Nephew’s first generation of Pico devices.
“With breast surgical procedures becoming more frequent, increasingly complex and with more women at high risk of breast cancer choosing to undergo risk-reducing surgery, such as bilateral prophylactic mastectomy, Pico 7Y is improving the delivery of therapy for what is currently an unmet need,” Paolo Di Vicenzo, Smith & Nephew’s senior VP of global marketing of advanced wound management, said in a press release. “Pico 7Y delivers effective therapy to two surgical wounds simultaneously with a unique patient-friendly system, which we believe will help improve patient outcomes, patient management and healthcare professional efficiency across diverse clinical settings.”
The Pico 7Y sNPWT system met all regulatory requirements in Europe on Aug. 21 and is currently pending regulatory clearance in the U.S.
