Washington D.C., Oct 20 : A new study has found that aerobics is really helpful for asthma patients and is effective in controlling asthma.
The researchers of American College of Chest Physicians did a 12-week supervised aerobic exercise program for patients with asthma and found that exercise yielded significant improvements in asthma control.
The researchers observed that patients, who performed aerobics exercise, had clinically and statistically improved asthma control (0.5 decrease in ACQ), short-acting bronchodilator (SABA) usage (nearly three times less per week), and depressive symptoms (four-point drop in BDI-II).
The study is published in Chest journal. (ANI)
