The case of asthma in South Kalimantan exceeds the national number (3,6% of 2,4%). The increasing of this case certainly requires rapid treatment so that airway obstruction does not occur suddenly and unexpectedly. Giving a semi fowler position, as one of the independent nursing interventions, can reduce tightness because it can reduce the pressure on the abdomen and optimize the lung function. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of giving the semi-fowler position to the stability of the breathings of asthma patients at Ratu Zalecha Hospital Martapura. This study used a pre-experimental study design with 30 respondents, using simple random sampling technique. The intervention of semi-fowler position was given to the respondents when they were having shorthness of breathing, and observation sheets were used to assess the stability of the breathing before and after the intervention was given. The Wilcoxon test was used for analysis with alpha 0,05. To result showed that the semi fowler position affected the stability of the breathing of asthma patients (0,00). The independent intervention of nurses with the provision of positions to asthma patients turned out to be very effective as one of non-pharmacological interventions.
