Title (EN) APPARATUSES, SYSTEMS, AND METHODS FOR MANAGING LIQUID FLOW ASSOCIATED WITH A TISSUE SITE USING THE PRESENCE OF REDUCED PRESSURE
(FR) APPAREILS, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS PERMETTANT DE GÉRER UNE CIRCULATION DE LIQUIDE ASSOCIÉE À UN SITE TISSULAIRE À L'AIDE D'UNE PRESSION RÉDUITE
Abstract:
(EN) The illustrative embodiments described herein are directed to apparatuses, systems, and methods for managing liquid flow associated with a tissue site that involves using reduced pressure to control fluid flow. In one instance, an apparatus includes a first valve and a second valve in fluid communication with a reduced-pressure source. The valves are movable between an open position and a closed position and are operable to change flow status (open to closed or vice versa) based on a presence of reduced pressure. At least one of the first valve or the second valve is in the closed position to obstruct a flow of a liquid while the other is in the open position. The apparatus also includes a reservoir fluidly coupled to the first valve and the second valve. Other systems, methods, and apparatuses are presented.
(FR) La présente invention a pour objet, dans les modes de réalisation donnés à titre d'exemple, des appareils, des systèmes et des procédés permettant de gérer une circulation de liquide associée à un site tissulaire qui implique l'utilisation d'une pression réduite pour réguler la circulation du fluide. Dans un exemple, un appareil comprend une première vanne et une seconde vanne en communication fluidique avec une source de pression réduite. Les vannes sont mobiles entre une position ouverte et une position fermée et sont conçues pour changer l'état de circulation (ouvert à fermé ou vice versa) sur la base de la présence d'une pression réduite. La première vanne et/ou la seconde vanne sont en position fermée pour obstruer la circulation d'un liquide tandis que l'autre vanne est en position ouverte. L'appareil comprend également un réservoir couplé de façon fluidique à la première vanne et à la seconde vanne. D'autres systèmes, procédés et appareils sont également présentés.
