In the early hours of the 27th December I had a severe asthma attack that put me in hospital. My peak flow reading was less than 120 even though I'd taken Ventolin through my spacer and the paramedics put me on the nebuliser. The reading hadn't gone up by the time I got to hospital. My usual peak flow reading is usually 450.
What I found worrisome is that the Ventolin didn't seem to help me at all. I kept doing what I should as I should. I wonder if, because my peak flow reading was so low, the Ventolin didn't work. It concerns me that it might well happen again.
