This is not relevant to in vivo water consumption. Furthermore, the authors may not have been aware that ozone therapy enhances prostacyclin synthesis and improves the prostacyclin/thromboxane ratio [3] . These effects stand in direct contradiction to the conclusion rendered by the authors of the single report, wherein an improvement in prostacyclin would be expected to have cardioprotective effects: ‘We assume that PGI2 stimulation may contribute to the beneficial effects of ozone treatment…

The researched literature corroborates that, in clinical practice, there is safety in the use of oxygen-ozone therapy through percutaneous injections for the treatment of lumbar pain, especially when compared to surgeries and use of medicines, provided that strict criteria are followed.
Ozonated water lavage and physiological saline irrigation combined with vacuum-sealed drainage in the treatment of 18 cases of chronic osteomyelitis
A combination of ozonated water lavage, physiological saline irrigation, and VSD provided good clinical effects in the treatment of chronic osteomyelitis, and thus, is recommended for such treatment.

It is shown, both by biochemical and morphological criteria, that heparin in the presence of O3 can promote platelet aggregation, and that after Ca(2+) chelation with citrate, Platelet aggregation is much reduced.
Metabolic Response during Impending Myocardial Infarction: II. Clinical Implications
There is increasing evidence that high arterial concentrations of FFA can depress myocardial performance by leading to ventricular arrhythmias and decreased contractility, and metabolic intervention in the management of heart attacks should accordingly be directed toward reducing mobilization of adipose tissue FFA and increasing myocardIAL glycolytic activity.
