The aim of the research is to study the influence of different levels of evergreen cypress pollen concentration as a biological factor of air on the effectiveness of health resort treatment (HRT) of patients with chronic nonspecific respiratory diseases (HNRD) at the South coast of Crimea (SCC). Materials and methods. The aeropollenological study of air at the SCC (Yalta) was conducted by means of gravimetrical method in 2011-2013. 93 patients, inhabitants of the Crimea, afflicted with HNRD (bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) were observed. The results of the research. At the SCC the evergreen cypress's blossoming is observed from February to April inclusively, and the highest concentrations of cypress pollen is registered in March and in the first half of April. In the absence of cypress pollen in the air, moderate and maximum pollen load, results of HRT, with the same content of basic medicines and health resort methods of treatment, are fully comparable, resulting in the achievement of comparable clinical state and the quality of life of the patients, the dynamics of research indicators. Conclusion. The presence of pollen of evergreen cypress, including its maximum concentration in the air, doesn't negatively influence the results of HRT of patients afflicted with HNRD at the SCC.
