h there i wonder if anyone can help me
my son who is nine was given an inhaler just over 1 month ago as he had been coughing continuously for 3 months with no relief from cough medicines. We visited the doctor again yesterday as his cough was becoming much worse and he was vomiting because of the strain.
My little boy has been given another inhaler with a mask and also a peak flow meter. I have been told to check 3 times per day and record the highest reading. As the doctor dopesnt know if asthma is the cause we are to take readings for one week and then visit again.
I wonder if anyone can tell me roughly what the readings should be. My little boy is registering 140 as an average. I washed the mouthpiece and checked myself and I am registering roughly 350.
Does anyone have any ideas on what a child with asthma would normally read and also a child without.
