I am now starting to get concerned!! I have been reading many post where peoples peak flows are 350 upwards. As well as having Asthma I have what they describe as 'mild Emphysema (having peeped at the computer screen in the surgery and seen it describe as that) my peak flow rarely goes above 200 but unless I am doing something very strenuous like fighting with a super king size duvet cover which is trying to consume me, I do not get badly out of breath. Are there different sorts of peak flow readings?, I know at check ups with the asthma nurse she does use a different scale, but I thought the ones we use at home were standard readings.
