Abstract

Airway obstruction is an important physiological disease in asthma clients that will inhibits the flow of air during inspiration and expiration, so that lung ventilation is not optimal. This situation makes clients lose base ability to reach normal airflow during breathing, especially when expiratory, which leads to reduction in peak expiratory flow. Non-pharmacological therapies can be used as a supplementary or complementary pharmacological therapy, one of which is progressive muscle relaxation. The objective of this research was to analyze the effect of progressive muscle relaxation on peak expiratory flow of clients with bronchial asthma. Respondents in this research were 11 people. Data analysis used dependent t-test with CI 95% (α=0,05). The results of data analysis showed the results of p value = 0,000 (p<0,05). The conclusion of this research is that there is a significant effect of progressive muscle relaxation on peak expiratory flow of clients with bronchial asthma. This research is expected to be applied and administered in health care, especially in the rehabilitation of clients with asthma to improve respiratory function optimally.
