Top 10 Apps and gadgets for Asthma control

People with asthma should periodically measure the forced peak flow in order to prevent the dangerous asthma attacks. Peak flow is measured using a special device - a peak flow meter.

Asthma app can read and record readings directly from the device or allows you to enter the data manually. At a critical peak flow value the application warns the patient about the danger.

In addition, Asthma apps help to keep track of asthma symptoms, triggers, that cause attacks (i.e. dust, weather, pets), medications you are taking. All this can be exported as a report and sent to your physician so that he could identify the most effective treatment for you.
