Abstract

Aim of our research was to evaluate the short-term efficacy of a cycle of thermal treatment in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD) we conducted a randomized single-blind study on 30 patients (mean age 64.6 ± 8.2) divided into 3 groups according to the treatment given: group A: they were submitted to the basic treatment only; group B: they were submitted also to a complete cycle of thermal inhaltory treatment (inhalation, aerosol and pulmonary ventilation); group C which were submitted to the same cycle of termal inhalatory treatment but with bronchodilators in solution added in the pulmonary ventilation. All the patients had a significant degree of bronchial obstruction (FEVI 56.7% of predicted ± 14.1). The respiratory profile of group A patients did not improve; while that of groups B and C showed a significant improvement in FEVI and Tiffeneau's index (p
