In this educational video, we will talk about one of the alarms of the wound vacuum therapy devices produced by Teb Tajhiz Paya Engineering Company: Blockage Error
When the Blockage error appears, the dressing is not vacuumed on the wound bed and the suction of the device is blocked, the reasons of this alarm will be explained in this clip.
- kink of SPP tube
- Closed SPP pipe clamp
- The smaller size of the foam compared to the SPP in small wounds, in this case, with the suction of the vacuum therapy device, the foam is drawn into the knee of the SPP and causes the path to be blocked.
Therefore, care should be taken to ensure that the size of the foam is 2 to 3 cm larger than the SPP cup in small wounds.
4. Keep in mind that in all wounds, the height or thickness of the foam should be 2-3 cm higher than the surface of the wound.
