Peak flow diary and meter

Using a Peak Flow meter and keeping a diary will show any early changes in your airways, allowing action to be taken.

Using your appropriate treatments effectively:

  • Steroid inhalers to reduced inflammation in airways.
  • Reliever inhalers to prevent airway spasm.

Try a bedtime routine:

  • Avoid distractions like television, mobile or tablet use in your bedroom.
  • Reduce your caffeine or alcohol intake in the hours before bed.
  • Try a warm bath, milky drink or reading for a short time before you go to bed.
