Now that the Food & Drug Administration has approved Smith and Nephew's PICO device for the treatment of wounds, the firm is hoping the pocket-sized device delivers a big payoff.  The portable single-use negative pressure wound therapy system consists of a disposable, one-button pump, attached to a dressing which allows for fluid to be absorbed through the dressing. Canisters are not needed and the dressing can be worn up to seven days.
