SLOW DEEP BREATHING INTERVENTION REDUCE THE FREQUENCY OF RECURRENCE OF PATIENTS WITH ASTHMA BRONCHIALE
Asthma is one of the problems that arise for people in various age and number of asthmatics is growing. Exercise have been widely used as complementary therapy people with Asthma Bronchiale. The goal this research is to analize effect of slow deep breathing intervention reduce the frequency of recurrence in patients with Asthma Bronkiale. This study used Pre Experimental Design with One Group Pre-Post Test. The samples in this study used purposive sampling technique with 10 respondents, while the instrument measured the value of PEFR used a flow meter and the frequency of recurrence in patients with Asthma Bronchiale checklist sheet and analyzed using the dependent sample t test (paired t test) with α 5%. The results showed that most respondents (88%) showed PEFR values increased and 60 % of respondents experienced a decrease in the frequency of recurrence of Asthma Bronchial after intervening slow deep breathing. Based on analysis of Paired T Test on PEFR values (p = 0.001) and the frequency of recurrence of asthma (p = 0.003), so it can be concluded that there is effect of slow deep breathing with the frequency of recurrence of Asthma Bronchiale. Slow deep breathing in the lungs causing get plenty of oxygen will flow throughout the body. This supports the activity of the cells and stimulate spending hormone such as endorphins to prevent the recurrence of asthma. Proper asthma management among others are making near-normal lung function, prevent recurrence, control regularly slow deep breathing.
