Product Overview


Device Description

A manual, hand-held instrument designed to measure only the maximum rate of expiratory gas flow [peak expiratory flow (PEF) or peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR)] from the lungs. It typically includes a tube for patient exhalation, an easy-to-grip handle, and a calibrated scale that shows the value of the peak flow. The device helps to discriminate the pulmonary status in routine tests performed in or outside of a clinical setting; it is also intended for periodic self-evaluation of the respiratory status of a patient, and to help in the treatment evaluation of patients suffering from chronic respiratory disorders (e.g., asthma, emphysema).
