For choice of medical ozone generator, most of physicians take into account, first of all, pricing information and disregard technical aspects as well as safety points of medical ozone generators. Unfortunately, some sellers take advantage of lacking recommendations for choice of appropriate equipment by distributing a misconception regarding technical characteristics and performance capacity of equipment.
Below are some reasonable recommendations, which should be taken into consideration for choice of medical ozone generator.
Otherwise it can be too late when you understand that your purchase is hardly suitable for medical use. Once your technician has got familiar with the technical documentation, it becomes evident that:
The manufacturer did not indicate durability of the ozonization chamber (the most important parameter and at the same time the most "weak" point of ozone generator) !
The manufacturer did not indicate i.e. did not guarantee accuracy in maintaining the chosen ozone concentration !!
The manufacturer did not enclose test results received before shipping, and the built-in ozone concentration measurer is not tested for accuracy !!!
As proofs of the above mentioned we would like to make a comparison between 2 types of medical ozone generator: the traditional unit UOTA-60-1 and the unit of the New-Generation MEDOZONS-BM with regards to the parameters defining the dose-depending factor, efficiency and safety of treatment. For comparison we have used the technical characteristics provided by the manufacturers.
|Accuracy in maintaining the chosen ozone concentration at level 1 mg/L||Not guaranteed||±5%||Medical ozone generators of Medozons series are tested for accuracy in maintaining the chosen ozone concentration and ozone/oxygen flow-rate, and the test results are indicated in the technical documentation, so, the manufacturer guarantees the parameters responsible for safety of ozone treatment.|
|Accuracy in maintaining the given ozone-oxygen flow-rate||
|Modes of setting and maintaining the chosen ozone concentration and ozone-oxygen flow-rate||Manual||Automatic||In case of completely automated process of ozone generation with guaranteed accuracy +/- 5% the use of a built-in ozone concentration measurer is not necessary.|
|Applicability of a built-in ozone concentration measurer (if tested for accuracy)||No||Not used||Most of the concentration measurers used have not been tested for accuracy that is why the physicians treat the patients at their own risk and bear the responsibility for treatment results.|
|Capacity for a dose-related therapy||No||Yes||Only high accuracy in maintaining the chosen ozone concentration and flow-rate allows performing a strictly dose-related therapy and using ozone like the generally accepted pharmaceutical products.|
|Warranty||1 Year||2 Years||A two-year warranty is given on the medical ozone generators of Medozons series|
|Durability of the ozonization chamber (before scheduled service)||Not indicated||2000 hrs of continuous operation||The manufacturer guarantees durability of the ozonization chamber and accuracy in maintaining the chosen ozone concentration for 2000 hrs of continuous operation (about 5 years of usage) before scheduled prophylactic service.|
|Completely automated operation system, defense from any accidental errors of the user, capacity for connection to external computer||No||Yes||The operation algorithm of the MEDOZONS-BM is automatically set by the micro-processing system of controls blocking the operation of ozone generator in case of any alarm situations. By connecting the ozone generator to an external computer you can receive a computerized work place for any ozone therapy practitioner.|
|Extra purification of oxygen at the inlet of ozone generator||No||Yes||At the inlet of the MEDOZONS-BM oxygen undergoes extra purification from microparticles of technical oils as well as extra drying thus preventing the formation of adverse toxic products during the ozonolysis. The ozone-oxygen gas mixture generated by the MEDOZONS-BM contains no toxic impurities (valid through mass spectrometry evidence).|
|No toxic impurities in the ozone-oxygen mixture delivered||Not guaranteed||Guaranteed|
It is a fact that most of the available "traditional" ozone generators do not comply with the actual requirements for dosage accuracy, efficiency and safety of treatment and therefore can be hardly suitable for medical use, below we would like to provide a few illustrative examples:
Already after 100 hours of operation the "traditional" ozone generator indicates significant variations between the display reading and the actual delivered ozone concentration. This problem was many times discussed by medical scientists (Prof. V. Bocci, 1996; G.A. Boyarinov, MD, 1998).
The "traditional" ozone generators do not have an automatic mode of setting and maintaining the chosen ozone concentration and flow-rate.
The "traditional" ozone generators are not reliable within the low and medium range of ozone concentrations that makes impossible to use most of the methods developed by the Russian school of ozone therapy.
It is a time to exchange "traditional" ozone generators with up-to-date ozone generators like medical ozone generators of Medozons series because most of the available "traditional" ozone generators do not comply with the actual requirements for dosage accuracy and safety of medical equipment and thus do not allow using medical ozone like the generally accepted pharmaceutical products.
And now a little of humor:
"The Traditional Ozone Generator" - to be operated "manually"
The medical practitioner using the "traditional" ozone generator has to continually control stability of treatment parameters (ozone concentration and flow-rate) by regulating them manually.
"The Up-to-date Ozone Generator" - the process of ozone generation is completely automated.
The happy user of the ozone generator of Medozons series has much more spare time to comprehend ozone therapy mysteries
