Abstract: Clinical pattern of the disease, systolic pressure in the pulmonary
artery, external respiration, central hemodynamics were assessed in 111
patients (50 with chronic obstructive bronchitis and 61 with bronchial
asthma) to study the effect of laser puncture. The treatment course
consisted of 10 sessions performed with application of Uzor apparatus in
pulse regimen with 890 nm wave length, 1500 Hz frequency and 2 mw mean
The results indicate a positive response to infra-red laser
acupuncture evident from improved bronchial patency, enhanced bronchial
sensitivity to sympathomimetics, reduced systolic pressure in the pulmonary
artery. The promise of the laser puncture is attributed to its separate
broncholytic effect and the ability to lower pulmonary vascular resistance.
