RESULTS:

All the bacteria tested were killed in vitro by ozone solution. In addition, when ozone solution was applied on burn wound, its clearance rate of bacteria was 94.5% and the clinical effective rate was 97.1%.

CONCLUSION:

Ozone is low in cost and high in effect which might be used as an agent for burn wound disinfection.
