By this method, 50 to 100 ml of the patient's own blood is withdrawn in the normal manner, enriched externally with an exactly defined quantity of ozone (with disposable sterile material and containers!). The ozone reacts completely - ie at a rate of 100 % - with specific substances making up the red and white blood cells and thereby activates their vital activities = metabolism. It is this activated blood (not ozone or oxygen!) that is immediately reintroduced into the patient's system using a normal drip unit.
Indications (treatment of the patient's blood outside the body before reinfusion):extensive burns; icu patients; systemic viremia; generalised sepsis; peritonitis; immunodeficiency—cellular & humoral ; rheumatoid arthritis; diabetes mellitus; hypertention; ihd; arterial insufficiencies
