POWERbreathe Trial – Colin White Week 2: Carry on Camping

Week 2 saw my PBK3 unit go camping.

I went camping with my family and had to keep things to a minimum, my PBK3 unit was able to be stowed away in my luggage without taking up too much room.
Day 1 of camp. I woke up and wasn’t wheezy despite the obvious damp outside (where is the summer??) I eat breakfast, take 30 breaths on my unit and head off for a morning run…on my return a friend of mine has the unit in his hand “inspecting it” or so he claims?? Asks what it can do so I explain about how it can strengthen my lungs and improve my fitness.

Over the weekend I continue to use the unit (twice a day 30 breaths each)

I also notice I am not using my preventer inhailer as much….coincidence?

Today (Monday 4th July) I visit my asthma nurse and show her the device… A praise for keeping on top of my care. My peak flow reading is up on last visit too 350 compaired to 330.

All round a good week.
