Relevance. The physiotherapy method of dry carbonic acid gas baths (DCAGB) mediated through the effects of carbon dioxide (CO2) is a minimally invasive treatment and prevention method of many human diseases. However, the CO2 effect on the rate of human aging has not been sufficiently studied. Therefore, it is relevant to study the effect of dry carbonic acid gas baths (DCAGB) physiotherapy method on peripheral blood indicators and biological age. Purpose. To assess the effect of carbon dioxide in dry carbonic acid gas baths condition on peripheral blood indicators and biological age in patients of different age groups. Patients and methods. An interventional single center controlled clinical trial was conducted on 140 male patients. Within 1 day before the DCAGB sessions course start (10 sessions 40 minutes each) and 1 day after course completion, patients’ peripheral blood samples were studied, as well as biological and cardiopulmonal age on the patented method was determined.
Results. DCAGB course reduced biological age in young and middle-aged patients by 5.5 years (p<0.001), elderly and old patients – by 4.7 years (p<0.001), elderly and old patients had a decrease in cardiopulmonal bio age by 8.6 years (p<0.01).
Conclusion. The course of DCAGB sessions slowed the aging rate of the human body from young to old age, which was probably associated with antihypoxic, antitoxic, antioxidant effects of carbon dioxide, as well as possibly with erythropoiesis activation.
