H2O2 i.e. hydrogen peroxide, in our time, is a great success. Medicine used various preparations on the basis of H2O2, which can easily buy in pharmacies. Depending on the concentration of peroxide has a bacteriostatic and bactericidal effect on microorganisms. Also, it can have a deodorizing effect, and in high concentrations when applied to the skin, irritating the place that is ingested, and may cause depigmentation of the skin or mucous membranes.
The action of the peroxide is due to the fact that when in contact with living tissue it begins to decompose. This releases molecular oxygen, which promotes oxidation of organic components of different cells. The decomposition of peroxide oxygen is released so vigorously that the solution foams.
The resulting in contact with the fabric foam AIDS in the mechanical cleansing of the damage and wounds. Along with the foam removed from the wound debris, bacteria, necrotic tissue, purulent discharge and so on. A solution of hydrogen peroxide is able by foaming to provide the hemostatic effect of a small bleeding.
The diluted solution of hydrogen peroxide in one hundred milliliters contains perhydrol – 10 g, 0,05 g of a stabilizer, about 100 ml of water. The hydrogen peroxide it contains in the amount of three percent. This liquid has no color, nor smell or it is very weakly expressed. The liquid quickly decomposes, releasing oxygen, when exposed to light, when heated, in contact with oxidizing or reducing substances, some metals and alkalis.
