Abstract

Holistic approach to disease is strongly associated with assessment of patients’ quality of life. It is particularly important in chronic diseases such as bronchial asthma. Recently physical, psychological and social problems of patients with bronchial asthma have been discussed more often. These reports are generally focused on the influence of the chronic somatic illness on a patients’ psychical condition, their emotions, personality changes, changes in the value system as well as the cognitive functions.
