[The effect of sanatorium-health resort treatment using foot baths on bronchial patency in children with chronic nonspecific diseases of the respiratory organs].

174 children aged 7-14 years in remission of recurrent asthmatic bronchitis and bronchial asthma took feet baths in addition to standard course of sanatorium treatment. Measurements of bronchial permeability and reactivity have demonstrated that foot baths have no negative effects on bronchial permeability in all the disease forms and maintain tolerance of the respiratory system to both cold and exercise.
