Nasal irrigation is the irrigation of the nasal passages with ozonated water or ozonated saline solution. The use of a neti pot is the simplest method.
In order to be able to do nasal irrigations you need:
oxygen + ozone generator + ozonated water + neti pot
Essentially, you're gonna need the same equipment as for the preparation of ozonated water plus a neti pot made of ozone resistant material.
Oxygen source: Either an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator can be used. Both the oxygen concentrator and oxygen tank have to allow for oxygen flows between 1/8 LPM and 1/2 LPM. Super low oxygen flows are not necessary to make ozonated water.
Oxygen concentrator: There are several possibilities. One can either use a low flow oxygen concentrator which allows for oxygen flows of 1/8 LPM to 1/2 LPM, which is enough to ozonate water, or one can use a regular oxygen concentrator (which usually allows for oxygen flows of 1/2 to 5 LPM) and attach an external low flow regulator to bring the flow down to 1/4 to 1/8 LPM and so to be able to achieve higher ozone concentrations.
Ozone generator: It should be a generator which uses ozone resistant materials in the air chamber, can be fed oxygen from an oxygen concentrator or an oxygen tank, and can reliably produce stable ozone concentrations at given oxygen flows. Ozonating water can be performed using relatively high ozone output of up to 100 ug/ml or even higher.
Accessories: 1) trap or check valve. A trap is preferable, which is usually an empty humidifier. 2) Water bubbler: this is a glass container which has a water stone attached to its ozone outlet and which allows for the creation of super small ozone bubbles and hence for a better ozone saturation of the water. An ideal water bubbler has also a destructor attached to its outlet so that no excess ozone leaks out and one can remain in the room while the water is being ozonated. 3) Neti pots made of ceramic or glass can be used.
First, connect the equipment as described in the “Ozonated Water” section and prepare the water. If you prefer ozonated saline, just dissolve some salt in the water before ozonating it.
After the water has been sufficiently ozonated, pour it into the neti pot and perform nasal irrigations with it as you would with regular water. Be careful to hold your breath during the procedure in order to not breathe any ozone in.
