Acute respiratory infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in young adults worldwide. T hey account for nearly 3.9 million deaths every year globally. Chest physiotherapy plays an import ant role by promoting drainage and ensuring normal lung expansion in parenchymal lung diseases and pleural diseases. Hence I was keen to evaluate the effectiveness of nebulisation with chest physiotherapy on respiratory status among adults patients with selected respiratory disorders like bronchitis, bronchiolitis, asthma, COPD and pneumonia. It was a quantit ative approach , Quasi experimental study design used (30) with respiratory disorders within the age group of 20-35 above years receiving nebulisation with chest physiotherapy using purposive sampling technique. Respiratory status assessment of clinical parameters (Rating Scale) and Bio physiological measurements(BPM) was done. For experimental group nebulisation with chest physiotherapy for 6 minutes in 10 positions. For control group nebulisation alone given both morning and evening for 2days. Mean, standard deviation, t -test , pearson chisquare test is used for statistical analysis. In experiment al group the respiratory disorder patients are reduced their clinical parameter distress score from 11.33 t o 4.17 . They are able to reduce 7.16 score from base line score. In control group 11.33 t o 7.90 t hey are able to reduce 3.27 score from base line score. Regarding bio physiological parameter, the reduction is statistically significant (P=0.001***) in both groups. Thus the author concludes that Improvement in respiratory status seen in children who receive nebulisation along with chest physiotherapy . Thus patients with respiratory diseases will benefit from the intervention in improving their respiratory status by clearing the secretions.
