Case Number 092046 - Non-Ozone Depleting Vapocoolants
Contact: Dan O’Neill
Description: This patented technology provides novel chemical compositions for use as topical anesthetics or skin refrigerants. These compositions do not cause the depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer. They are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and less flammable than ethyl chloride. These chemical compositions match the skin temperature versus time profile needed in the management of myofascial pain syndromes, for effectively freezing skin prior to minor skin surgery and for effectively freezing skin prior to giving painless injections.
Issued US Patent # 6,737,041, “Non-ozone depleting vapocoolants.”
