Sažetak
The aim of the study was to determine whether an examined group of asthmatic patients differ significantly from a control group of coronary patients with regard to perception of two groups of etiological factors and their interaction: a) ecological factors, and b) habits and behavior of the patients. The study included 100 patients with bronchial asthma and 102 with coronary disease. A questionnaire was used to obtain data on ecological factors in the living environment of the patients and information on habits and behavior. The questionnaire was structured according to the specific needs of the study, and as a starting point known, calibrated, psychometric scales were used. Asthmatic and coronary patients did not differ with regard to their place of residence, i.e. the same number lived in the town and village, in similar ecological environments, and they also did not differ with regard to life style and habits. The study indicated statistically significant differences between asthmatic and coronary patients in their perception of several ecological and other risk factors. The asthmatic patients significantly more frequently perceived harmful ecological factors in their environment and regarded them significant for the occurrence of their disease. The coronary patients perceived their unhealthy habits and behavior as the causal factors of their disease.
