The use of ozonated water as an alternative to traditional disinfectants
To confirm the effectiveness of ozonated water as an alternative to traditional disinfectants is a Norwegian study, published in February 2019 in the authoritative medicine periodical: Journal of Hospital Infection.
The research was carried out on 30 nurses, whose hands were infected with the bacterium of Escherichia coli with the aim of comparing the disinfection capacity of ozonated water and that of alcohol in hand contamination.
The published results show that all the contaminated hands before disinfection showed a battery charger of about 30,000 which dropped to 1017 after using ozonated water and to 2337 following the rubbing of hands with alcohol. The median values (range) were 500 (0–6700) and 250 (0–16,000), respectively (non significant difference).
What is really considerable, however, is that about 20% of the participants found negative effects on the skin such as burning and dryness due to the use of alcohol, with the ozonated water instead they did not register any problems. It was therefore concluded that ozonated water is an effective decontaminant and could be an alternative to traditional alcoholic hand sanitizers not only in public places but also in healthcare institutions. It is also evident that it can be particularly useful for people with skin problems .
