Abstract
気管支喘息に対する温泉療法の効果をピークフローメーターを用いて継時的(第1週,第5過,第9週)に検討した。1.軽症・中等症では,第5週で有意にピークフロー (PEF)値は上昇した.重症気管支喘息例では第9週に有意な改善を認めた。2.20%以上のPEF値の改善を認めた症例の割合は第5週では,軽症・中等症・重症群で40~50%であったが,第9週では軽症群で80%,重症群で54.5%に増加していた。中等症群では第5週と同等であった。3.第1週のPEFが200(L/m)以下の症例では第5週,第9過とPEFの有意な改善を示したが,200
Abstract Alternative
The aim of this study was to investigate effects of spa therapy on peak expiratory flow (PEF) in patients with bronchial asthma. Morning PEF metry was studied in fifty asthmatics who had spa therapy (swimming training in a hot spring pool, inhalation of iodine salt solution and fango therapy) for 5 - 9 weeks. Mean values of morning PEF at the initial stage, 5 and 9 weeks after spa therapy were assessed. In mild and moderate asthmatics, PEF significantly improved 5 weeks after spa therapy. In severe asthmatics, PEF showed significant increase 9 week. The number of subjects with PEF improvement more over 20%, compared with the intial value of PEF, were 50% at 5 weeks and 80% at 9 weeks after spa therapy in mild asthmatics. In moderate asthmatics, however, the number little changed between 5 (39.3%) and 9 weeks (38.9%) after the therapy. In severe asthmatics, 57.1% at 5 and 68.8% at 9 weeks. In asthmatics with the initial value of PEF<200L/m (low PEF group), the value showed significant increase 5 and 9 weeks after the therapy compared with the initial value. In asthmatics with the initial values of 200≦PEF<300 (middle PEF group) and 300≦PEF (high PEF group), the values showed no significant increase. The number of subjects with PEF improvement more than 20% showed a tendency to increase 9 weeks in low, middle and high PEF group, compared to the value after spa therapy (57.1% to 68.8%, 21.4% to 50% and 35.7% to 42.9%, respectively ).
