Abstract


Take A Deep Breath And Release.” Yet many of us still think of breathing as a natural involuntary function that our bodies just know to do. Bronchial asthma is chronic inflammatory disorder of the lower airway due to temporary narrowing of the bronchi by bronchospasm, manifested as dyspnea, wheezing and  excessive cough. These symptoms may only aggravate with poor breathing technique. these techniques that improve the breathing are known as breathing exercise and will help the school age children to control their respiratory muscles and improve their condition. Objectives :the present study was aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of buteyko breathing techniques on respiratory function among school age children  with bronchial asthma  at selected hospital, vadalur. Design: the research study made use of quasi experimental research design. Participants: the non-probability purposive sampling technique was used to select 50 samples. Methods:demographic variables and pre test was conducted on the first day for both experimental group and control group to assess the respiratory  parameters in experimental group. The data gathered were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics.result: the result shows the comparison of pretest and post test  mean level of respiratory function among school age children with bronchial asthma.pre test and post test difference in experimental group is 4, level is the difference between the pre test and post test  mean in control group is 1. It seems that the effectiveness of buteyko breathing techniques on respiratory function were differences of 3%. The experimental group paires “t” test was 23.78 and control group was 14.16 (p<0.05) ,the experimental group and control unpaired “t” test value was 3.658(p<0.05) in respiratory function. There is significant difference in independent “s” test regarding respiratory function level.
