What is an asthma diary used for?

ANSWER

Keeping a daily asthma diary can help you monitor asthma triggers and asthma medications. Use the diary to:

  • Record asthma symptoms and peak expiratory flow (PEF) readings
  • Compare PEF readings with your asthma zones
  • Keep track of how often you use medications for a sudden asthma attack
