Topical treatment as transcutaneous gas immersion or “bath” (bagging)

Foto Transcutaneous "ozone gas immersion" is a method of choice in extensive, deep topical infections. Here, after moistening the extremity to be treated or the area over the organ concerned, direct O3 gas immersion is applied inside a sealed, ozone-resistant plastic bag, or in a slight vacuum using a special, low-pressure "boot" or under a low-pressure cup.

Skin lesions, burns, superinfected wounds (surgical scars), diabetic foot, phlegmons (erysipela), large-surface, open and deep chronic ulcers, possibly infected, and decubitus ulcers.

Method and concentrations
In transcutaneous ozone gas immersions or low-pressure applications used in the treatment of infected ulcers, the O3/O2 mixture is initially applied at higher concentrations (70-100 µg/ml) after moistening of the area to be treated. Its microbicidal and virostatic effect already takes place at lower concentrations (< 40 µg/ml). Once wound healing has actually started, the concentration can again be reduced (< 20 µg/ml),
