Who can benefit from PulseCare Closed Pulse Irrigation™?
Patients who benefit from PulseCare include those suffering from diabetic ulcers, 
Non-healing vascular wounds, or post-operative non-healing wounds. Medical institutions and health care workers benefit too, because our pulse lavage system reduces the dangers of contamination and reduces cost of care.

Who can administer the PulseCare system? What training is necessary?
PulseCare products are safe and easy to use. Nurses, physical therapists, and wound cleaningspecialists can learn to use the system in just a few hours, and PulseCare provides comprehensive, hands-on training on-site or through
distance learning opportunities. To learn more about PulseCare training
Please email PulseCareMedical or call 978-687-3242, 9am-5pm M-F EST.

Can PulseCare be used safely on people over 60 years of age?
Yes. PulseCare has been used successfully with hundreds of patients
over 60 years old who have suffered from nonhealing wounds. Because
there are no side effects from use (as with some oral antibiotics) PulseCare is
safe as well as effective in removing nearly 90% of all bacteria from wounds.
In many cases PulseCare has eliminated the need for limb amputation and has saved lives of those suffering from critical conditions.

Is any anesthesia required?
No. PulseCare is a treatment that can be administered at bedside and requires no
anesthesia. The sensation is similar to that of a shower massage. On sensitive, open wounds this can cause some minor discomfort, but this is only temporary and subsides within a few minutes of treatment. 

Can PulseCare be used safely in doctors’ offices, clinics or a surgi centers?
Yes. PulseCare is regularly administered in doctors' offices, wound clinics and surgi centers nationwide. Because the system is portable, self contained and compact, there are no special treatment rooms required.

Is the PulseCare treatment painful?
Open, infected wounds are sensitive and painful. Many patients cannot sleep because wound pain is so disruptive. On critically infected wounds the first few treatments may be uncomfortable, but once most of the bacteria is eliminated ongoing wound pain is almost completely eliminated, improving the patient’s quality of life. For patients who have a difficult time tolerating initial treatments a mild pain reliever may be used prior to treatment.
