Ingestion of hydrogen peroxide is not an uncommon source of poisoning, and results in morbidity through three main mechanisms: Hydrogen peroxide has purported benefits ranging from HIV treatment to cancer treatment.
Its use in the natural health industry represents an emerging source for accidental poisonings. Hydrogen peroxide is a commonly used oxidizing agent with a variety of uses depending on its concentration. Although historically it has been used for medicinal purposes such as wound irrigation, its toxic effects preclude its routine use.
Ingestion of hydrogen peroxide is not an uncommon cause of poisoning, and results in morbidity through three main mechanisms: The growing naturopathic health industry has promoted the use of hydrogen peroxide in treating a wide variety of medical conditions.
Immediately after ingesting the hydrogen peroxide, he realized it was a caustic substance and drank mL of water to induce vomiting. A small amount of hematemesis was noted. He experienced mild epigastric pain without shortness of breath or oropharyngitis.
On arrival to the emergency department, he was hemodynamically stable and in no respiratory distress.
The oral cavity and oropharynx were slightly erythematous and the abdominal examination revealed mild epigastric tenderness but no distension, and normal bowel sounds. Intravenous IV fluids and IV pantoprazole, 40 mg twice per day, were initiated. Bloodwork was normal except for mild leukocytosis; the chest x-ray was normal.
Esophagogastroduodenoscopy was performed to assess the severity of the caustic injury. This revealed a normal oral cavity and normal esophagus. The stomach revealed grade 2 diffuse caustic mucosal injury of the entire stomach, including the cardia, characterized by superficial erosions with exudates and edema Figure 1.
The duodenum only revealed a few scattered superficial erosions in the first and second parts Figure 2.Jul 27, · Hydrogen peroxide is a commonly used oxidizing agent with a variety of uses depending on its concentration.

Hydrogen Peroxide (H 2 O 2). For those who prefer it, we also have hydrogen peroxide available. We ship only the 7% solution food grade H2O2 due to the volatility of higher concentrations. Atomic hydrogen produces hydrogen peroxide, H 2 O 2, with oxygen. Atomic hydrogen reacts with organic compounds to form a complex mixture of products; with etilene, C 2 H 4, for instance, the products are ethane, C 2 H 6, and butane, C 4 H Hydrogen peroxide emerged as major redox metabolite operative in redox sensing, signaling and redox regulation.
Generation, transport and capture of H 2 O 2 in biological settings as well as their biological consequences can now be addressed.
The present overview focuses on recent progress on metabolic sources and sinks of H 2 O 2 and on the role of H 2 O 2 in redox signaling under. PART I.
INTRODUCTION. Do you know anyone who suffers from brain fog, fatigue, constipation, spaciness, racing thoughts, PMS, headaches, trouble sleeping, depression, anxiety, rashes, white spots on the fingernails, slow wound healing or learning disorders?
Aside from their role in the monthly cycle, estrogens are responsible for the development and maintenance of the female sexual organs, cause the deposition of fat in the breast&buttocks (which contributes to the feminine figure) and have a potent effect on bone development.
