Ozonized Water

Ozonosan photonik plus

Ozonosan cytozon

In topical applications, the use of ozonized water is now gaining in importance. Ozone is present in water in molecular form, i.e. as O3, presenting a physical solution. When using bidistilled water (aqua bidestillata) and a high-quality ozone generator, a maximum saturation of approx. 20 µg ozone per ml of water at room temperature can be obtained. It reacts immediately on skin contact, contrary to ozonides, such as e.g. ozone cream, which have a long-term effect.

Local infections, ulcus cruris, decubitus ulcers, mycosis, mycotic infections, herpes simplex and herpes zoster (also including subcutaneous ozone injections where required), burns, also superinfected burns, intraoperative rinsing, eye injuries and infections,surgical scars (healing: primary or secondary), edemas of traumatic or bacterial origin.

Method and concentration
For 5-10 minutes, allow an ozone/oxygen gas mixture at an O3 concentration > 100 (4 min in Ozonosan alpha plus) or 60-80 µg/ml (10 min with Ozonosan photonik) to pass in the form of small bubbles through 1 litre aqua bidestillata with a water column of approx. 40 cm. In bidistilled water, the half life of ozone is approx. 10 hrs at room temperature, the concentration remaining approx. 18-24 µg/ml at 20 °C [68 °F]. In the refrigerator, ozonized bidistilled water can be kept for several days.

Overdosage is not possible, as the dose is limited by the solubility of ozone in water, approx. 24 µg/ml for aqua bidestillata. Ozonized water is basically applied on account of its pain-relieving, disinfectant and antiinflammatory effects, as well as its tissue-activating properties in acute and chronic injuries with and without infection. In these indications, it is being applied with increasing success. Here, especially, the elimination of perifocal edema is in the foreground. Ozonized water is also being used intraoperatively for rinsing (disinfection), as in hand surgery, in dental medicine and particularly in oral surgery. The healing time for primary scars is shortened and irritation-free. In a number of cases, long-term treatment can be continued using peroxidic oils.
