How is major autohaemotherapy performed?
For extracorporeal blood treatment, as a rule, only sterile single-use material must be used. Furthermore, the treatment needs to performed within a closed, pressure-free system.
50 to 100 ml of autologous blood are taken from the patient, which is subsequently enriched with precisely predetermined quantities of ozone to be directly reinfused. In order to ideally activate all erythrocytes and immunocompetent cells, the ozone/oxygen mixture should be be finely dispersed to be bubbled through the blood. Our micro-bubble system allows for the finest distribution. Ozone will react within split seconds, while the oxygen is bubbled through the blood over an ample surface area to eventually gather on top of the liquid level. Blood will be reinfused as a regular intravenous drip at 60 to 90 drops per minute. This means that neither a single oxygen molecule nor a single ozone molecule will enter the vascular system (Source: Ozone in Medicine: The Low-Dose Ozone Concept—Guidelines and Treatment Strategies: Ozone: Science & Engineering: Vol 34, No 6 (tandfonline.com). Besides a hygienically faultless operation, the handling of ozone also requires the use of ozone-resistant materials.
The following video precisely illustrates the procedure of major autohaemotherapy performed by means of our ozone generator OZONOSAN alphaplus.
- patients under 18 years of age
- deficiency of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (favism, acute haemolytic anaemia)
- (uncontrolled) hyperthyreosis, thyrotoxic crisis
- pregnant or lactating women
- major autohaemotherapy is not indicated for leukaemia
What actually is ozone? Which are its indications and contraindications? How does an ozone therapy act and which kinds of ozone therapy are available? All of these questions and many more will be answered in our Ozonosan Magazine. For decades we have conducted research in the field of ozone therapy and have continuously enhanced our products. Here, both medical personnel and patients will find useful information on the subject of ozone therapy. Please come back and visit our site regularly as it is continuously updated.
Material Requirements for Ozone Therapy
Since ozone is highly reactive, the used materials must be selected with utmost care in order to prevent undesirable side-effects (material dissolution due to decomposition and the creation of toxic substances). This starts already with choosing the starting substance – oxygen.
Ozonized water and its action principle
The medical application of ozonized water has a long tradition with regard to wound-healing, mouth rinsing and presurgical and postsurgical disinfection. Ozonized water kills bacteria, fungi and viruses. For water treatment , ozone has been successfully utilized for more than 100 years.
Ozone therapy as complementary therapy type
The healing properties of ozone have recently become an indisputable fact among experts. Alternative therapists and non-medical practitioners make use of the positive, biological properties of ozone within the scope of the so-called ozone therapy to accelerate the wound healing of patients and to revitalise their immune system.
