Yes. KCI has established two methods for connecting wounds to one therapy unit: “Bridging” and “Y-connecting.” Bridging can be accomplished when you have multiple wounds of similar pathology in close proximity to one another. The V.A.C.® Drape is placed on the intact skin between wounds, and a strip of foam is placed from one wound bed to the other over the draped skin. As long as all pieces of foam are touching each other, you can place the tubing in a central location and use one pump to distribute pressure throughout all the wounds.
Y-connecting allows you to treat multiple, non-infected wounds that are a larger distance apart by using the Y-Connector that can support two separate tubing connections. Negative pressure in either situation is distributed across the wounds, yet controlled by one pump. Please reference the V.A.C.® Therapy for Veterinary User Manual for more information. Note: Negative pressure will be monitored at only one arm of the Y; it is not recommended for use for flaps/grafts.
