Optimal Organization of the Respiratory System Therapy in Salt Mines and Caves
It has been discovered (see e.g. Skulimowski 1968) that a sojourn in the underground atmosphere of a salt mine is profitable for people suffering from bronchial asthma and other respiratory diseases. Since 1958 the subterranean space of the Wieliczka Salt Mine (Poland) has been utilized for therapeutical purposes. During this use the following problem has arisen: how to organize the therapy for a possible maximal number of patients without persistantly disturbing the therapeutic factors of the atmosphere. The most important factors to be concerned within the first order are oxygen and vapour weight contents per unit of volume.
