As an exception is considered the use of high doses of ozone 4000-6000 for major AHT to achieve immunosuppression in viral hepatitis, rheumatic diseases, herpetic infection.
The frequency of procedures can be different. Intravenous infusions of ozonated saline should be performed daily or every two days. Major AHT should be performed every 2-3 days, minor AHT usually every two days. An exception is made for generalized infection of different genesis when different methods of ozone therapy can be used within one day.
For example, locally can be performed a treatment with ozone/oxygen gas mixture or ozonized water in a special chamber plus intravenous infusion of ozonated saline for systemic effect. The duration of treatment course depends on the severity grade, kind of disease etc. In spite of existing treatment protocols the frequency and number of procedures should be if possible determined individually.
The achieved positive results of treatment after ozone therapy can be kept on average from 5 to 7 months depending on the kind, form and stage of disease. That means it is recommended to repeat treatment courses 2-3 times a year to support the received therapeutic effect.
Ozone therapy is characterized by after-effect i.e. the patients notice changes in their state some time later after the end of treatment course. This phenomenon can be explained so that the increased point of oxyhemoglobin reduction time decreases very slowly, within several weeks. Thus, the high level of oxygen in the blood exerts a therapeutic influence even after the treatment course has been finished.
For patients with somatic pathology before ozone therapy it is necessary to collect the complete anamnesis on availability of any chronic infection. The matter is that ozone is able to aggravate these processes. In this situation it is necessary to continue ozone therapy that facilitates the arrest of inflammation. In some cases it can be necessary to use additional medicines.
