Lisabeth that does not sound weird. Pilates kind of works like that. With it you do certain breathing exercises. I love it but it makes me sleepy.

I have gotten mine from the doctor each time, they charge the insurance company. You can find them on Amazon.com and other places on the web. Durable medical goods stores supply them as well. Most of them, though, need a prescription to provide one, as the set points are set by your doctor.

If it is to be, it is up to me!

I didn't think I needed a peak flow meter or an action plan. My insurance has a nurse that calls me to update on my asthma, how I am doing. She required both.
I began using the meter and realized my breathing was worse than I thought it was, my number was around 250. The more I used it, the better it got.
In a way, the meter exercises my breathing (taking a deep breath and blowing it out). That may sound weird and you can probably do it without a meter, but I saw my numbers go up, and my breathing better.

Dr does not think I need a peek flow meter. My asthma is going well (does that sound crazy?) Lets just say it is sleeping. I wish my allergies were asleep but they are not. That is my problem now. Just called dr. I hoping and praying he does not prescribe prednosone I can't take it. Sends my blood sugars soaring.

I've had one for several years. Peak flow at or below a certain point and I neb. If it is at the red level and I can't bring it to yellow, call doc or go to hospital.

If it stays in the yellow after 2 nebs, call doc stat. Really easy for me to figure out when my asthma is making it hard to think. DH knows the levels as well, so can help in decision making if needed.

This also gives me a feeling of some way of knowing how things are doing, as opposed to feeling as if the asthma is controling me.


If it is to be, it is up to me!

Who has heard of or has made out an Asthma Action Plan. I received some books from my insurance that ask me to have an asthma action plan wrote up and this is the first time I have every heard of one.
