Abstract: 
Objective. Disability due to mustard gas emmisions arised by respiratory involvement among chemical afflicted at rate of 84% level reportedly, they treated with medications with side effects and sharp expenditures, the presents paper deals with pressure medicine (non-invassive method) on respiratory complications warfare the said patients.
Material and Methoods . The current work based on semi-field experiments with crossover methodology in 30 samples in two groups through two trial and error stages and followed by pressure medicine by application of Sea-band attached to wrist. Data was collected through questionniare from S. T. George and spirometry pre-post intervention.
Results. Significant conclusions are drawn as follow:
1. There was apnea background in 53.34% of subjects.
2. There was significant difference between average of apnea attacks during control stage and tests within two groups (P=0.05).
3. Significant difference between Mean of cough attack during control stage and tests within two groups (P=0.05).
