Infrared sauna in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis (2009)
In all patients, a clinically relevant improvement was seen during the IR sauna treatment with pain and stiffness decreasing 5 to 24 points. Pain reduced approximately 40% and 60% and stiffness approximately 50% and 60% for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis, respectively. All patients felt well during and after IR treatment, and 30 min after the end of treatment, 88.2% of patients felt “comfortable” or “very comfortable”. The results of this study show that the use of IR sauna as treatment is feasible and well tolerated in patients with inflammatory arthritis.
Repeated Thermal Therapy Diminishes Appetite Loss and Subjective Complaints in Mildly Depressed Patients (2004)
In mildly depressed patients, somatic and mental com- plaints decreased and a relaxation effect was obtained after repeated thermal therapy. Furthermore, we found that feeling of hunger occurred and the plasma ghrelin concentrations and daily caloric intake increased after repeated thermal therapy.
Clinical Cardiology: Review | Beneficial effects of sauna bathing for heart failure patients (2007)
Repeated sauna therapy (60°C for 15 min) improved hemo- dynamic parameters, clinical symptoms, cardiac function and vascular endothelial function in patients with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) […] Sauna therapy improved the cardiac index, mean pulmonary wedge pressure, systemic and pulmonary vascular resistance, and cardiac function. Sauna treatment is considered safe for CHF patients with NYHA classes I, II and III. It seems that sauna treatment may help improve clinical symptoms and hemodynamic parame- ters secondary to an improvement in the endothelial func- tion of patients with CHF whose endothelial function is impaired.
