Abstract: Introduction: Ozone bubbles with a diameter less than 100 nanometers can remain in the water for a long term. This is called the “ozone nano bubble.” The main feature of this ozone nano bubble is that it has an excellent antiseptic capability to bacteria. A trial using the ozone nano bubble water in conjunction with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO2T) for osteomyelitis, and soft tissue infection were carried out. Methods: The following research was carried out from December 2009 to October 2010 at Kawashima Orthopaedic Hospital. Eight osteomyelitis cases were treated with closed irrigation therapy using the ozone nano bubble water as irrigation water. Closed irrigation therapy is a method used to wash lesions by draining the irrigation water in continuous succession for one or two weeks. 1000-2000mL ozone nano bubble water per day was used. 27 soft issue infection cases had their wounds washed with 20-50mL of ozone nano bubble water every day. All cases were treated with HBO2T, as well. HBO2T was carried out under the condition of 2 ATA and for 60 minutes once a day. Results: Wound healing was seen in seven out of eight osteomyelitis cases. In 27 cases of soft tissue infection, 20 cases (74.1%) were finally cured. Seven cases (25.9%) continued exudation or were amputated. For the control group, we researched skin ulcer cases which were not treated with the ozone nano bubble water. In the control group, 13 cases (56.5%) out of 23 were cured by HBO2T, 10 cases (43.5%) were not cured. Conclusion: Good results were obtained by using the ozone nano bubble water. This could be a further adjunct to therapy; further research with larger numbers is required to confirm these results.
