Stop watch, nose clip, inch tape, pediatric asthma quality of life questionnaire [PAQLQ] were used as the operational tools. Paired and Unpaired “t” testing was used to analyze the pre- test and the post- test values after a period of 6 months.

Results: Analysis of the peak expiratory flow rate and the quality of life over Group “A” and Group “B” at 0.05% level of significance showed positive results for Group “A” when compared with the ‘t’ value.
