extriCARE™ 2400 Negative Pressure
Wound Therapy (NPWT) System

The FDA-cleared extriCARE™ 2400 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy pump is portable and battery-powered. The device generates negative pressure (suction) to remove wound exudates, infectious material, and tissue debris from the wound bed, which may promote wound healing.


The extriCARE 2400 Pump is used with Devon Medical Products’ proprietary extriCARE™ bandages. These bandages have a wound pad enclosed in mesh under a sticky film that can be applied directly onto the wound bed. There is a drainage tube that connects to a canister adjacent to the pump that collects exudates and bodily fluid. The bandages come in oval shapes as well as other designs.

  • Lightweight & Portable: Only 8.6 oz. (competitors as high as 20 lbs. or more). A carrying pouch is available,
    promoting an active wound healing lifestyle.
  • Anatomically Fitted Bandages: Create tighter seals for all parts of the body, including various sizes and specialty bandages for the foot, and sacrum, etc.
  • Rechargeable Battery: 24 hours of continuous battery life, and the battery is rechargeable.
  • U.S. patent-pending
  • Able to handle multiple wound sites with use of Y Bridging Kit.
  • Medicare Reimbursement Code: E2402

2. CONTROL PRESSURE: Holding down the SET key for two seconds will initiate the procedure for setting the pressure. The screen will display a flashing pressure reading at this time. Press SET once to increase pressure by 20mmHg. In order to obtain a lower pressure, scroll through by pressing SET button. The pressure will increase until 140mmHg, and then will start at 40mmHg again. When desired pressure is reached, press the PUMP button to confirm and exit pressure settings.
3. SET MODE: Hold down MODE button for two seconds to select the mode (continuous or intermittent).

  Dressing and Canister Application
1. The clinician may loosely place extra gauze dressing material into areas of undermining and tunneling. The decision type of gauze material used is based on clinician preference. Document the amount of additional packing material used.  
2. Dressings should be changed as needed.
• The initial dressing should be changed in 24 - 48 hours or when leaking, whichever comes first. Dressings should not be left in place longer than 72 hours.
• If the dressing sticks to the wound, moisten with saline or water during
removal. Adhesive remover may be used.
• Dispose of soiled dressings according to facility protocol.
3. Avoid outside sources wetting the dressing. The dressing should be protected from moisture during bathing or changed prior to reconnecting to the pump. Do not use the extriCARE™ 2400 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Pump while showering or bathing. Always disconnect and remove pump from areas of moisture (bathing area or tub). Clamp the tubing when pump is disconnected.
4. To remove a canister, pull up on the canister clip on the top of the device and pull the canister away. To reinstall a canister, line up the notch on the bottom of the canister with the hole for it on the extriCARE™ pump, and then press the canister clip into place. The clip should click into place and the canister should feel snug.
5. The extriCARE™ 2400 Negative Pressure Wound Therapy System is capable of accommodating more than one dressing set for multiple wounds on a single patient. A Y Bridging Kit is available to connect the dressings to enable the use of one pump.
