In the main study, 113 (male n = 19, female n = 94 Previous studies (Müller-Kerenyi, 2009), performed by persons) respiratory patients were participated who had been the Medical Mátrai treated 50 patients with asthma, allergy and COPD showed that after the first month of the treatment questionnaire was filled out by every fifth patient, who were of the examined patients’ suffering the 3 types of desease treated asthma, rhinitis or COPD disease from September of needed significantly less medicine, than a half year later.

After the first month of hospital treatment the patients used less steroids (t =- 2.840, df = 81, p = 0.006) and intravenous injection (t = 1.997, df = 81, p = 0.049) These data partly confirm that the personal hospital treatment, climate therapy of Mátraháza added, significantly improves the life quality, health status of asthmatic patients and reduce the medicine demand. The research results confirm that the investigations being continued with more chart 1. The disease is confined to the core activities of the extent of hospital
In the chart, can be observed that after the hospital treatment in the first month in almost all activities, the improvements in the last few years. Today, the inflammatory average low is between 0 and 1, which means that patients in nature of asthma proven and accepted fact. Therefore the the hospital treatment after the first month the illness were steroid-contained antiphlogistics play important role in the not or only slightly limited in the everyday activities and treatment of asthma. These drugs are very expensive and it work.6 months later, the averages have increased, which sets a significant burden on individuals and society as well, indicates the reduction of the impact of the treatment and because of the growing number of asthmatics.
