Like you said, it depends on the type of meter they use. Most meters read in \"Liters per minute\". If your good reading is 2.0 and your bad reading is 1.5 then your yellow zone is probably 1.5 . Your red zone would probably be around 1.25

If your breathing is as bad as you claim, you really need to be evaluated by a competent pulmonologist. Asthma Kills, don\'t mess around with and certainly don\'t exercise when you\'re in the middle of a flare. If your parents wont listen, seek help somewhere else. Talk to a counselor at School. Good luck!

Ive never taken them for pain, Ive only used them for my breathing. To me , the side effects out weigh the benefits, so after being on them for 10 years, I weaned completely off. I still use nebulized dilaudid when I my breathing gets really bad.

So sorry to hear that you were treated so poorly. This happens all the time and I hope you complain. It is rare that an O2 sat would be a 100% during a severe flare, but it is possible. O2 sat is usually the last thing to drop during an attack. It\'s also possible to have asthma and anxiety at the same time, One can cause the other. Do you have a resp consultant? You should have them write a letter on your behalf. You might consider joining my Facebook asthma group . Hope you feel better soon.

First of all, Thanks very much for your service to this country.Sorry to hear that your having a rough time with your health. A good friend of mine had BOOP, probably not as bad as yours, but he also has COPD and requires high flow O2. .In 2009 we did the Boston marathon together. We\'re both unable to run, so we walked it. Would you happen to know what your FEV1 is? I wish I could make some recommendations for you, but Im afraid my knowledge is limited to severe asthma. I do however know a lot of pulmonologists who specialize in all kinds of respiratory conditions. Please stay strong!
