Patients with asthma will experience decrease in pulmonary function due to airway obstruction. Yoga Pranayama is a practice of meditation, self-hypnosis with positive suggestions and breathing exercise for patients with asthma that can cause optimal ventilation. This study was to explain the effect of Yoga Pranayama to pulmonary function improvement of patients with asthma in Puskesmas IV Denpasar Selatan. The study was using quasy experimental design with two group pre-post test design. The population was pastient with asthma in Puskesmas IV Denpasar Selatan with total sample of 12 patients, consisted of 6 patients for intervention group dan 6 patients for control group. The independent variable was Yoga Pranayama. The dependent variables were Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR) and Oxygen Saturation (SaO2). Data were analyzed using the Paired T-Test and Independent T-Test with significance level of =0.05. Instruments were peak flow meter, and pulse oximetry. Results showed that there was significant difference in PEFR (p=0.00), but there was no significant effect on the value of SaO2 (p=0.10). Yoga Pranayama can increased tidal volume as a result the value of PEFR increased. SaO2 values in asthma patients affected by (1) the cardiovascular circulatory disorders (2) Increased metabolic rate (3) Anemia (4) Decrease the inspired oxygen concentration. In conclusion, Yoga Pranayama had effect to increase PEFR but had no effect on SaO2.Future study may using spirometry and blood gas analyze for spesific measuring the PEFR and SaO2.
