The PeakAir Peak Flow Meter measures how well your lungs are able to expel air and the highest speed you can blow air from your lungs. You can learn to use this simple device to monitor your asthma and head off attacks before they occur. The peak flow meter is small and lightweight which allows you to use it anywhere discreetly. It is a full range meter designed for both children and adults. It's reusable and includes a disposable mouthpiece.
Perfect for asthma sufferers of all ages, the PeakAir Peak Flow Meter is very simple to use. Stand when you take your peak flow reading to allow for the best results. You should do three blows and take the best of the three, they should all be just about the same. Your readings depend on your effort, so blow out as hard and fast as you can and be sure to keep your lips sealed around the mouthpiece. It shouldn't be a long exhalation, short and fast!
Use the colored markers of the zone monitoring system to determine the effectiveness of your asthma treatment. The green zone is when your peak flow reading is 80% or more of your Personal Best and you are in control of your asthma. The yellow zone is when your reading is 50-80% of your Personal Best. This is the caution zone and you should be making changes to your asthma treatment as discussed with your physician such as using your rescue inhaler to open up your airways. The red zone is when your readings are half of what they should be. Stop what you are doing and take your rescue inhaler.
