My Diary (Repeat Prescription, Doctor's Visit, To Do, Peak Flow, Symptoms & Treatment, Personal Achievements, Triggers, Quick Test and Exercise)
The Diary is the central tool for day-to-day monitoring of your personal activities such as appointments, medication, doctor's appointments, etc. Each time an event is opened and completed, its icon is marked on the relevant date. You can click on any date on the calendar to view the recorded events and the 'To Do' list (if applicable) for that particular day on the right side of the Diary. *Please refer to How to use the Diary.
Each Diary event has a specific role:
||The Repeat Prescription event allows you to log dates and times when you need to refill or renew your reliever, preventor or protector.
||Tracks information related to your visits to the Doctor's -- both before and after a visit.
||Acts as a reminder to log diary events or to do personal tasks. Some To Do reminders can be added to the Diary from within other events.
||The predicted P.E.F. calculation is based on your height.
|Symptoms & Treatment
||The symptoms you are experiencing today and/or the treatments you are taking today.
||The Personal Achievement event allows you to log something special you have managed to do or to set goals for the future.
||Tracks the triggers that are causing your asthma today.
||Check yourself out -- even when your asthma seems under control, it may be troubling you more than you realise.
||Tracks all aspects of any physical activity that you do including the duration, distance and heart rate.
