The use of medical ozone for the treatment of acute respiratory viral infections

There are indications in the medical literature that in the pathology of ENT organs, ozonated distilled water or saline solution, ozonated vegetable oil should be used to irrigate the mucous membranes, and in purulent-inflammatory diseases, intravenous infusions of ozonated saline solution should be used.

In acute rhinitis with significant nasal congestion, in addition to the recommended therapeutic agents, it is possible to use insufflation of a gas ozone-oxygen mixture. This procedure is carried out in our Clinic under the supervision of a doctor.

At the final stage of uncomplicated acute respiratory viral infection, the use of infusion ozone therapy gives a clear clinical effect with a rapid cessation of coughing, the disappearance of symptoms of malaise and weakness.

With prolonged ineffective therapy of bronchopulmonary complications of acute respiratory viral infections (rhinitis, sinusitis, otitis, tracheitis, tonsillitis, pneumonia) and extrapulmonary (neuritis, radiculoneuritis), the addition of infusion ozone therapy to the main treatment almost always leads to a rapid recovery.

A clinical example.

Patient N., 47 years old, suffered from ARVI for a month. Then, against the background of drug treatment, the phenomena of bronchitis developed with a sharp intoxication, a rise in temperature to 38C, the appearance of chest pain, weakness and sputum with a putrid smell. The patient was hospitalized. An X-ray of the chest revealed the presence of a cavity with fluid (pneumonia). In addition to antibacterial therapy, ozone infusions were prescribed (400 ml of ozonated physical solution every day with a gradual increase in ozone concentration). After the second procedure, there was a decrease in cough and shortness of breath, an improvement in the properties of sputum, a decrease in chest pain, and an improvement in general well-being. In total, 10 procedures of intravenous ozone therapy were performed. By the end of treatment, the control blood tests had returned to normal. The R-images showed a sharp decrease in the intensity of the focus of inflammatory changes in the lungs, a decrease in the size of the cavity. After a full course (4 weeks) of complex treatment with medical ozone on the control R-images of patient N., the presence of only residual phenomena of pneumonia was noted.

In our clinic, ozone therapy is used in almost all areas of medicine. In our opinion, we should make greater use of ozone therapy in clinical practice around the world. Moreover, the experience of clinical application in Europe is more than 100 years.
