Ozone therapy is presented like an alternative therapy in critically ill patients. After ozone therapy, an improvement in the hemodynamic parameters with an increase in tissue oxygenation were demonstrated. No modifications in the cardiac output were reported. A modulating effect of ozone therapy in certain biochemical parameters was observed. Also, microbiologic cultures were negative and leukocyte figure became normal. An ozone therapy preventive effect in the appearance of generalized sepsis was observed. With all these results we conclude that ozone therapy can be considered as a prophylactic therapy in critically ill patients.
