Resources for surgeons to support patients benefitting from Prevena Therapy
Protecting the incision after surgery is important to your patient’s recovery, and with patients increasingly discharged more quickly into the community this can be a cause for concern for both clinicians and patients.
This page is designed to provide surgeons with resources to support patients and community healthcare professionals to be empowered and informed in managing surgical incisions at home.
This easy-to-understand video explains to patients why their surgeon has chosen Prevena Therapy to manage their surgical incision, how they should wear and use the device at home, and what to look out for in case they need to contact a healthcare professional.
NOTE: Applicable therapy units include the 3M™ Prevena™ Therapy 125 Unit and Prevena™ Plus 125 Therapy Unit 7 Day.
The indication statement does not apply to the Prevena Plus 125 Therapy Unit (14-day) that comes with the 3M™ Prevena Restor™ System Kits (see Prevena Restor™ System indications for use).
Our patient discharge leaflets provide patients with all they need to know about going home with Prevena Therapy protecting their incision.
This simple infographic can be sent home with the patient to add to their notes. They can show to their community healthcare professional to explain that their incision is being protected by Prevena Therapy.
