What does the app do?
This app lets you record your peak flow readings, asthma symptoms, triggers and medicines. You can email your records to others, such as your healthcare provider, family/whānau members or your school. The app allows you to create a 3-stage asthma action plan. The app records data anonymously for research purposes.
✔ Provides a video tutorial.
✘ The adult action plan template (NIH action plan) differs from those we use in New Zealand. It uses a 3-stage plan which is somewhat similar to our 4-stage plan but without the oral steroid step. Our 3-stage plan has oral steroids for the yellow stage instead of increasing preventer medication. It also doesn't have a SMART action plan and the plans in general are not particularly customisable. The child action plan seems similar to the New Zealand one.
