Frequently Asked Questions

What is the MicroDoc® system?
The MicroDoc® is a specialized negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) system designed for shallow wounds with a moderate amount of exudate (approximately 10 ml/day) that do not require or no longer require a collection canister.

This compact and lightweight system includes a disposable, battery-operated suction device with an electric motor-driven vacuum pump, Enluxtra™ Smart Wound Dressings made of hydrophilic gelling fiber, adhesive polyurethane drapes, and StingRay® flanges with PVC tubing to connect the dressing and drape to the suction device. The dressing is applied over the wound, secured by the drape, and connected to the MicroDoc® suction device using the tubing. These components are supplied in a sterile condition and intended for single-patient use. While the negative pressure Control Unit is also for single-patient use, it is not provided sterile.

The MicroDoc® is suitable for hospital and home care settings, offering portability through pocket placement, carrier attachment, or use of the included arm/leg velcro strap.

What’s included with the MicroDoc® system?

The MicroDoc® system includes the following:

  • MicroDoc® Control Unit
  • Complete Wound Dressing Kits, which includes:
  • 4” x 4” Enluxtra Dressings
  • Mini StingRays®
  • Velcro Strap
What is the weight of the MicroDoc®?
The MicroDoc® weighs 0.25 lbs.
What is the size of the MicroDoc®?
The MicroDoc®’s size is 3.23" x 2.21" x .95".
How do I use the MicroDoc® system?

To use the MicroDoc® for wound therapy, follow these easy steps:

  1. First, turn on the device by holding down the POWER button until the -50mmHg pressure setting starts flashing.
  2. While flashing, you can adjust the pressure setting by pressing the POWER button. Keep pressing to choose between the three available pressure settings.
  3. Once you've selected your desired pressure, connect the device to the dressing tubing.
  4. The light for your chosen pressure setting will stop flashing when the device works correctly.
  5. To save battery power, the battery indicator will turn off after a while, still showing the battery status.
  6. When you're finished with your therapy, turn off the device by holding the POWER button until all the lights go off.
What are the pressure settings on the MicroDoc®?

The MicroDoc® offers three distinct continuous pressure settings for negative pressure wound therapy. The three pressure settings offer flexibility to accommodate different wound types and patient needs:

  • 50 mmHg: This setting provides a gentle level of negative pressure.
  • 80 mmHg: The -80 mmHg setting offers moderate negative pressure.
  • 125 mmHg: This setting delivers higher negative pressure and is often chosen by healthcare professionals as the default pressure level.
How do I wear the MicroDoc®?
The MicroDoc® offers versatile wearing options to suit your preferences and needs. You can choose to attach it to the closest extremity (arm or leg) using the included Velcro strap, whether it's on top of clothing or secured to a belt, providing flexibility in how you wear it at your waist. Alternatively, you can place it inside a convenient carrying case for on-the-go use.
How do I know if the MicroDoc® is functioning correctly?

You can easily verify that the MicroDoc® is effectively delivering negative pressure therapy by two visual cues:

  1. Ensure the chosen pressure light on the control unit remains consistently on during regular operation.
  2. Check that the outer drape surrounding the Enluxtra dressing looks tight and snug.
What do the flashing lights on the MicroDoc® mean?
Visual alerts in the form of sequentially flashing lights promptly notify users of potential issues, such as suction line blockages or vacuum leaks. These intuitive notifications make troubleshooting straightforward, ensuring continuous and effective wound therapy. For more troubleshooting information, please refer to the MicroDoc® User’s Manual.
What does the blue light flashing in sequence mean?
When the blue lights on the MicroDoc® flash in sequence, it signifies a low-pressure condition, which usually indicates a leak in the system. After one minute of detecting this condition, the pump will automatically turn off.
How should I respond if a low-pressure indicator occurs on the MicroDoc®?

If you encounter a low-pressure indicator, follow these steps:

  1. Check the tubing for an airtight connection to ensure there are no leaks.
  2. Inspect the Mini StingRay for any visible leaks.
  3. Verify that the dressing has a proper seal around the wound.
  4. Ensure that the dressing/drape opening and Mini StingRay are correctly aligned.
  5. If you've corrected the issue, turn the unit off and back on.
  6. If the problem persists or if you are uncertain about how to proceed, it is essential to promptly notify your healthcare professional or doctor for further evaluation and assistance.
What do the three pressure lights flashing sequentially mean?

If you observe the three pressure lights flashing sequentially, this indicates a gross leak. As a result, the MicroDoc® pump will shut off as a battery-saving feature. Follow these steps to resolve the low-pressure condition:

  1. Inspect the dressing seal and tubing for any signs of leaks or breaches.
  2. Ensure that the tubing connection is securely fastened and correctly attached.
  3. Examine the Mini StingRay for any leaks or issues.
  4. Verify that the dressing, drape, and Mini StingRay are correctly aligned and sealed.

After conducting these checks and addressing any identified issues, press the POWER button to resume the operation of the MicroDoc®. If the three pressure lights start flashing again, notify your Healthcare Professional or Doctor for further guidance. Please note that manually turning off the flashing lights to disregard a low-pressure situation is not possible; the underlying condition must be resolved for the system to operate correctly.

How can I identify a blockage in the MicroDoc® system?
During normal operations, the dressing and drape should have a wrinkled appearance, with the drape pulled in tightly against the edge of the dressing. This confirms that negative pressure is being applied to the wound. In a blockage condition, the dressing and drape would lose that effect, with the drape appearing looser around the edge of the dressing. If you observe this change in appearance, it may indicate a blockage in the system.
How can I resolve a blockage in the MicroDoc® system?

To resolve a blockage condition, follow these steps:

  1. Check the tubing for any blockage or kinks in the line.
  2. If there are kinks or a blockage, unkink the tubing or clear the line as appropriate to correct the issue.
  3. After addressing the blockage, turn the unit off and then back on.
  4. If the issue persists or if you are unsure how to proceed, it is essential to notify your healthcare professional or doctor for further guidance and assistance.
Why does the MicroDoc® use ENLUXTRA® dressings?
ENLUXTRA®’s Smart Wound Dressings provide a versatile solution that can be customized and sized to fit individual wounds perfectly. This flexibility ensures a snug and comfortable fit, enhancing patient comfort during the healing process.

Moreover, they bring many clinically proven advantages over standard absorbent dressings. These benefits include being non-cytotoxic, hypo-allergenic, and efficiently managing moisture while absorbing wound exudate. Additionally, they play a vital role in preventing skin maceration, maintaining a healthy wound environment, and reducing pain and odor, all of which contribute to patient well-being and comfort.

ENLUXTRA® dressings also possess the unique ability to self-adapt and regulate moisture levels as needed for optimal wound care. They effectively absorb wound exudate, lock in moisture without drying out the wound, and protect the skin around the wound site. Furthermore, they contribute to selective wound cleansing, gradually and painlessly removing non-viable tissue and other pro-inflammatory components.

In summary, the MicroDoc® chooses ENLUXTRA® dressings for exceptional performance and adaptability. These dressings enhance the patient's comfort and experience and contribute significantly to the effectiveness of negative pressure wound therapy with the MicroDoc® system.

Can I use regular gauze or hydrophilic foam as my dressing?
While it's possible to use regular dressings, the ENLUXTRA® dressing is integral to the MicroDoc®'s effectiveness. Switching to alternative dressings may diminish the healing attributes of the ENLUXTRA® dressing and increase the risk of maceration. The ENLUXTRA® dressing's self-adapting technology sets it apart for wound care.
How do I apply the wound dressings for the MicroDoc®?
Please refer to the MicroDoc® user’s manual for more information about applying the wound dressings.
Can I use the MicroDoc® for both acute and chronic wounds?

It offers benefits for both types, potentially aiding in wound closure and reducing scarring.
Is the MicroDoc® compatible with different wound sizes?
The ability to customize and size the Enluxtra dressing makes it adaptable to wounds of various sizes and shapes. Healthcare professionals can tailor the dressing to fit comfortably and effectively on the wound site.
Can the MicroDoc® be used for postsurgical scar management?
Yes, the MicroDoc® has been used effectively for postsurgical scar management. It may reduce scar visibility and promote optimal healing when applied to surgical sites. However, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional for guidance on scar management with the MicroDoc®.
How should the MicroDoc® be used on split-thickness skin grafts or skin substitutes?
When using the MicroDoc® on split-thickness skin grafts or skin substitutes, it's recommended to apply a non-adherent layer over the graft before placing the MicroDoc dressing. Depending on the contour of the graft site, you may also use additional filler to help stabilize the graft. To ensure optimal performance, it's essential to monitor the dressing and pump functionality frequently throughout the treatment process.
What type of wound care patients are the best fit for the MicroDoc® system?
