A quote from the following paper...
"The first case in which he tried H2O2 was an infant three months old, suffering with broncho-pneumonia.  The disease was going rapidly to an apparently fatal issue: there was general cyanosis and every other evidence of insufficient oxygenation.  A teaspoon of Marchand's H2O2 (diluted with 4 volues of water) every five minutes was ordered, and this was continued for several hours.  The breathing gradually became easier, the cyanosis gave way to redness, and the child recovered."
