n on pulmonary function testing (PFT), peak expiratory flow monitoring (PEFM), and the severity of asthma (SOA). Twenty boys and 10 girls were randomly assigned to receive regular asthma treatment combined with a 6-week swimming training (experimental group) or regular asthma treatment alone (control group). Compared with the control group, the experimental group showed significant improvements in PEFM and SOA.

THAI CHI HELPS PATIENTS CONTROL ASTHMA

(Wednesday, October 29, 10:30 AM EST)

Thai chi training may help patients with asthma improve their exercise performance and asthma control. Researchers in Thailand enrolled 17 patients with persistent asthma in a 6-week Thai Chi Qigong training program. After Tai Chi Qigong training, patients showed significant improvements in peak flow variability, asthma control test score, negative inspiratory pressure, 6-minute walk distance, and quality of life. Patients also increased their maximum work rate, maximum oxygen consumption, and exercise endurance time. Researchers conclude that Tai Chi Qigong training could be an effective, nonpharmacologic, adjunctive therapy for patients with persistent asthma to help them achieve better asthma control and quality of life.
