The Versajet Hydrosurgery System is used for wound debridement such as:

  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Pressure Sores
  • Infected wounds
  • Burns

The Versajet uses saline under extremely high pressure (water jet) that precisely excises the tissue. Because the saline pressure is so strong a vacuum effect occurs, so the tissue that is excised is also suctioned away into the suction canister

Versajet Machine

  • 3L IV Saline
  • 3L Suction Canister to gravity NOT to suction
  • Prime on level 10 then lower setting for dissection (usually between 4-7)
  • Foot pedal to activate machine & increase / decrease power level

Versajet Hand Piece

– Orange end, IV spike, & suction end handed off to circulator

– For safety purposes, prime hand piece in metal or plastic basin. The water jet is strong enough to eat through the drapes, gown, & gloves.
