Thirty-six patients with chronic obstructive lung disease (34 cases with bronchial asthma, one case with chronic bronchiolitis and one case with pulmonary emphysema) have
received spa therapy. Clinical effects of sa therapy on patients with bronchial asthma depended on patient age and asthma types classified by allergic reactions and clinical
symptoms. Spa therapy was effective in the cases with ages more than 31 years and the cases with non-atopic type of bronchial asthma. Regarding asthma type classified by clinical symptoms, spa therapy was more effective in the cases with bronchiolar obstructive type and the cases with bronchospasm + hypersecretion type than in the cases with bronchospasm type of bronchial asthma.
