Background and Objective: Achieving adequate asthma control is one of the primary goals in the management of this disease. There are limited data on the effect of the exercise training on asthma control and the relationship between Physiological and Psychological Parameters changes induced by exercise with asthma control. So the aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of aerobic exercise program with breathing exercises on asthma control and physical - psychological Parameters of women with asthma.
Methods: 24 women with mild to moderate asthma were selected and divided into two groups including experimental (n=13) and control (n=11) groups. The experimental group performed aerobic and breathing exercises in 12 weeks, three times a week. Asthma control test (ACT) and FEV1, VO2peak, resting blood pressure, depression, and Body mass index assessments were conducted at baseline and after 12 weeks of intervention, for both the exercise and control group.
Results: After 12 weeks training, there was significant increase in asthma control, FEV1 and VO2peak and a significant decrease in depression and BMI in the experimental group compared to the control group (P<0/05). VO2peak, resting blood pressure, depression and BMI changes were not significantly correlated with improvement in asthma control, and there was only one significant correlation between the increase of FEV1 and improvement of asthma control (P<0/05).
Conclusion: This study showed that 12 weeks of aerobic training with respiratory training can be useful in promoting physical-psychological health promotion of patients with asthma, and improvement of FEV1 caused by exercise can play an effective role in better controling of asthma.
Keywords: Exercise, Asthma control, Depression, FEV1, VO2peak
