Study Objective: To assess the efficacy of essential oil inhalation, administered through the Dyshi inhalation patch as part of combination therapy for acute respiratory illnesses (ARI) in children.

Study Design: This was an open-label, randomized, controlled study.

Materials and Methods: The study’s participants were 80 children with ARI, aged 5 to 12, who were divided into two groups. Children in the main group (n = 40) wore the Dyshi inhalation patch in addition to the background therapy they were receiving. Children in the control group (n = 40) received background therapy alone. The efficacy of the therapeutic approaches was assessed by physical-examination data, measured on a 10-point visual analogue scale (VAS). Examination was performed on treatment days 1, 6, and 12.

Study Results: In the main group, a complete course of treatment led to greater improvement in symptoms than in the control group. After 12 days of treatment, the mean VAS scores for nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, and daytime cough in the main and control groups were 0.3 and 2.4, 0.4 and 2.1, and 0.4 and 1.1, respectively (р < 0.001 for all comparisons).

Children using the Dyshi inhalation patch did not experience any side effects.

Conclusion: Combination therapy including background therapy and the Dyshi inhalation patch provides the greatest clinical benefit for children with acute respiratory infections. The Dyshi inhalation patch is safe and well tolerated by children.
