External Limb Bagging

Bagging a limb is very similar, but requires only a clear plastic
bag in order to confine the ozone to the area being treated. The limb
is moistened first, in order to aid the penetration of ozone through
the skin, then enclosed in the plastic bag and the ozone is introduced
by the silicone tube from the generator into the bag. The top of
the bag is securely closed with either a cloth strip or an elastic
strap. If the flow rate is to be above 1/8 l/m, then an outlet from the
bottom of the bag will be necessary to allow the excess ozone to leave,
and avoid pressurization. If the flow rate is kept very low, say 1/16 l/m
or 1/32 l/m, there is no need to have an outlet, as the bag will not overfill
in a 30 minute treatment. This technique has been in use for many years,
and is especially useful with impaired circulation in diabetic legs,
removing the threat of amputation.
