Objective: Study the effect of a total of hyperthermia in sauna and iodine-bromine baths on functional status and physical characteristics. Materials and methods: Sauna therapy (7–9 treatments at intervals of 3–4 days (2 times a week) at a temperature range 65–70 °C and iodine-bromine baths (in the free of sauna days – 12 sessions of 10 minutes at a temperature range of 37–38 °C). Assessment of the recovery of physical performance in young athletes (n=65) and school children with Chronic Non-Specific Lung Disease (CNSLD) in history (n=54).
Results: The study showed a significant increase in adaptation to physical and thermal load, expressed in positive hemodynamics, optimization of circulation in athletes compared with the control group (CNSLD). A significant improvement in bronchial permeability and increase in the maximum ventilation in children with (CNSLD) after completion of rehabilitation with respect to the original data were found. Physical performance after exposure increased in the group of young athletes by 5.8% to 499.01 kgm/min (10.12 kgm/min.kg). In the comparison group, it increased by 23.46% to 366.84 kgm/min (11.08 kgm/min.kg).
Conclusions: The positive effect of iodine-bromine baths and sauna therapy occurred immediately after intervention and remained over the year in young athletes and in children with CNSLD.
