Climato-physiological reactions can be considered as favorable or adequate one, when irregular reactions of functional systems initiate autoregulatory processes returning the system to optimal functioning. The weather dependence is an ability of an organism to respond to changes in particular weather parameter and a complex of weather factors (atmospheric pressure, temperature, wind, etc.). The climatic factors mainly exposure to the skin and the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract; the respiratory system changes induced by the contrasting climate can be the result of meteophysiological processes and meteopathic reactions. Disadaptation in patients with respiratory diseases occurs more often and is more severe than in healthy people. The aim of the current study is to defi ne the weather dependence degree of external respiration function of patients with bronchopulmonary pathology in the south of Primorsky Krai, characterized by the monsoon climate with negative effect on human health.
