Abstract: Objective To study the relation between asthma and anxious condition. Methods Totally 60 asthma patients (include outpatients and inpatients)and 60 healthy people were observed. Fill in the questionnaire before and after treatment, and calculate the score of asthma control test(ACT) and the Hamilton anxious meter (HAMA). To analysis the data by using SPSS 13.0. Results The characteristics of the two groups on admission were similar( P > 0.05 ). Before and after treatment, the ACT grading and the Hamilton anxious grading were significant different [ ( 11.45 ± 3.16) vs (20.87 ± 2.30);( 10.45 ± 3.81 ) vs (5.90 ± 2.00), P < 0.01 ]. The ACT grading and the HAMA anxious grading of asthma patients were significantly different compared with those of healthy people [ ( 10.45 ± 3.81 ) vs (4.02 ± 1.50);(5.90 ± 2.00) vs (4.02 ± 1.50) ] ( P < 0.01 ). During the treatment,the ACT grading was significantly correlated with the anxious grading( P < 0.01 ). After treatment, the anxious grading of asthma group was significantly lower and was correlated with the ACT grading before and after treatment ( P <0.05). The anxious grading after treatment was significantly correlated with that before treatment ( P < 0.01 ).Conclusions Asthma is not only a kind of physical disease, but also a kind of psychological disease. It is very necessary for the asthma patients to take a long-term drug therapy and psychotherapy.
