In the modern conditions there is a tendency of increasing morbidity among children, especially after their entering primary school that demands necessity of implementing health saving techniques (HST).
Objective: to evaluate the influence of HST «Education in moving» on the anti-infectious resistance and the rate of functional and chronic somatic disease formation in pre-school aged children.
Material and methods. A deep clinical and instrumental examination of 153 children was conducted prior to entering school, then in the one- and two-year period of schooling, and also after leaving primary school in gymnasium No.283 in Kyiv (the main group included 65 pupils), in which HST «Education in movement» was implemented by professor O.D. Dubogai and in primary school in the town Boyarka of Kyiv Oblast, in which HST was not implemented (the comparing group included 88 persons). The status of anti-infectious resistance was evaluated according to the incidence of acute respiratory infection (ARI) episodes during the year, the presence of their complications, and the rate of functional and chronic somatic diseases.
Results. During the 4-year period of observation of children a positive influence of HST on the children's anti-infectious resistance was proved. In the main group there was no increase in the proportion of children with chronic pathology, the rate of pupils with cardiovascular functional disorders decreased significantly (from 30.8% to 8.3%), while in the comparison group there was a significant increase in the proportion of children with musculoskeletal disorders (from 29.5% to 44.4%), diseases of the digestive (from 21.9% to 36%) and respiratory systems (from 7.9% to 44.4%), endocrine pathology (from 32 5% up to 50.0%), functional disorders of the cardiovascular system (from 46.6% to 58.3%). Pupils of the main group missed classes significantly less commonly due to the disease as well as there were significantly more children who were never ill during the year.
Conclusions. The usage of HST «Education in movement» allows ensuring a high level of anti-infectious resistance of pre-school aged children, manifested by a significant decrease in the incidence of seasonal ARIs, a decrease in their duration, prevents complications and formation of functional disorders and chronic pathology. The data obtained allow recommending this technology for the large"scale implementation in general educational institutions.
Key words: pre-school aged children, morbidity, health-saving technologies, acute respiratory infections, anti-infectious resistance.
