Method: A quasi-experimental study with a non-equivalent control group approach was used for this experiment. Of 106 asthma patients, 51 patients who met the inclusion criteria were chosen to participate in this study. The participants were asked to do a PLB exercise based on the standard operating procedure of PLB provided by the researcher. Results: The data analysis showed that there was a significant difference in the RR before and after the PLB exercise with an average of 23.90 and 19.94 (p<0.05), respectively. Conclusions: This result indicated that PLB could affect the RR on asthma patients in Pulmonary Polyclinic, TNI AU dr. M Salamun Bandung Hospital.
