Knossi and Sascha Huber carried a little potassium permanganate with them in their bottle. This was recommended to them by the Austrian Fighter Command. It actually works, and I have put together what it can be used for in this blog post.
But first Sascha's video - check it out, it's a great video with a very personable instructor from the Austrian Fighter Command.
The video is about potassium permanganate: Wikipedia .
The video is about potassium permanganate, among other things. This is a strong oxidizing agent. Knowing the exact dosage and making sure you know what you are doing is very important. As the instructor explained in Sasha's video, potassium permanganate can be used as an external treatment for skin diseases. This can be extremely useful, especially in the jungle or if you have a lot of diseases on your feet. Potassium permanganate is used in the laboratory to clean glassware. The Austrian military uses potassium permanganate for a variety of purposes, from water treatment to generating landing signals for helicopters.
The Austrian Jagdkommando uses the following dosage of potassium permanganate to purify 1 liter of water: A tiny tip of a knife, so that the water turns only very slightly violet.
The Austrian Jagdkommando uses a larger amount for wound disinfection: a large tip of a knife in 1 liter of water. The wound can be rinsed with this solution to prevent wound infection. After this addition, the water takes on an intense violet colour.
When handling potassium permanganate, you should definitely pay attention to the correct dosage, otherwise serious health problems can occur.
It remains to be seen whether Sascha and Knossi will use potassium permanganate to disinfect their wounds.
