這一篇文章原文刊載於亞太區的專業醫療期刊上,由 Science Daily 每日科學 於2009年轉載,作者是台北醫學大學的王正信醫師,真的是很棒的研究!讓我們來分享這篇報告:


ScienceDaily (Aug. 24, 2009) — Research has shown that swimming aids asthma symptoms in children. The activity has been proven to be an effective non-pharmacological intervention for children and adolescents, according to a study in Respirology, published by Wiley-Blackwell.
Science Daily 每日科學 2009/8/24】研究結果顯示,游泳改善兒童的哮喘症狀。根據由 Wiley - Blackwell 出版的 Respirology 呼吸科 期刊,游泳活動已被證明是一種對兒童和青少年有效的非藥物干預治療方式。
Researchers divided children between the ages of seven to twelve into two groups. One group underwent a six-week swimming program in addition to their regular asthma treatments. All of the children in the experimental program showed significant improvement in all clinical variables including symptoms, hospitalizations, emergency room visits and school absenteeism.
Other improvements included asthma severity, mouth-breathing, snoring, chest deformity, self-confidence and general feelings of disadvantage.
研究人員將七至十二歲之間的兒童分成兩組。除了經常性的哮喘治療,其中一組接受為期六週的游泳計劃。所有接受游泳計劃的孩子在所有臨床變量包括:症狀、住院情形、急診次數和學校缺課情形,都表現出顯著的改善。
其他包括哮喘的嚴重程度、口部呼吸、打鼾、胸部畸形,自信以及整體而言的負面感受,皆在進步之列。

"Unlike other sports, swimming is unlikely to provoke asthma attacks. In addition to improving asthma, swimming promotes normal physical and psychological development, such as increasing lung volume, developing good breathing techniques and improving general fitness," said lead author, Wang Jeng-Shing from the Taipei Medical University.
He added, "Not only is swimming an excellent form of exercise for children with asthma, the health benefits reaped continued to be observed for at least a year after the completion of the swimming program."
本實驗主要作者,台北醫學大學的王正信醫師說:「不像其他運動,游泳是不太可能引起哮喘發作。除了改善哮喘,游泳促進正常的生理和心理的發展,如:增加肺活量,發展良好的呼吸技巧並強健體魄,」他補充道:「游泳不僅是罹患哮喘兒童的絕佳運動形式,經觀察在完成游泳計劃後,健康上的獲益持續至少一年。」
