[Sauna therapy in coronary heart disease with hypertension after bypass operation, in heart aneurysm operation and in essential hypertension].

It is reported about the influence of the sauna therapy on blood pressure, heart frequency, peripheric hemodynamics (Xenon-133-muscle-clearance) and the reaction of the cardiac output or left ventricular ejection fraction with hypertonia patients, patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) and hypertension and after aneurysm resection after heart infarction. It was shown that sauna therapy has a positive effect on hypertonic regulations troubles. One of the reasons of lowering blood pressure is the significant improvement of the peripheral hemodynamics. Sauna therapy does not result in any improvement of the left ventricles pumping function after operation. All described groups of patients showed a good tolerance and compliance with sauna therapy.
