Abstract

The hemostatic properties of ozone were studied on models of parenchymatous (from a wound in the liver) and stem (from the stump of the tail) bleedings in rats. An air-ozone mixture at a flow rate of 1 liter/min and a concentration of 2 mg/ml was found to exert a pronounced hemostatic effect. Our findings indicate that the arrest of bleeding under the influence of ozone is due to the formation of a fibrin membrane on the surface of the flowing blood, this leading to rapid and effective hemostasis. Preliminary drying of the wound still further speeds the onset of hemostasis.
