PEROGEN BATH

Sodium Perborate with Catalyzer
yields effervescing hydrogen dioxid baths evolving 35 pints nascent
oxygen in some 20 minutes. Acts specifically sedative and som-
nifacient, producing euphoria and sound sleep. Far preferable to
the Nauheim bath in cardiac processes with high blood pressure-
arteriosclerosis, asthma, chronic nephritis. Obviously indicated in
skin diseases where H2O2 is used.
