Peak Flow Meter Low Range - Philips
The Philips peak flow meter is an inexpensive, portable, handheld device for people with obstructive lung conditions that is used to measure how well air moves out of your lungs. Measuring your peak flow using this meter is an important part of managing your symptoms and preventing an attack and should form part of your personal action plan.
Peak flow is measured using a small handheld device called a peak flow meter. The scale is in units of litres per minute (lpm). When you blow into the mouthpiece the small marker will move depending on how fast you are blowing. Where the marker ends up, is your peak flow reading. The highest reading from three attempts should be recorded as your personal best peak flow reading.
Your healthcare professional will set the colour zone indicators based on your or your child’s personal best peak expiratory flow rate (the best peak flow measurement achievable when your condition is under control). The peak flow measurement will fall into one of three zones.
Built-in flexible three-zone management system and easy-to-read numbers. The integrated three-zone asthma management system helps patients comply with treatment regimens. The colour-coded indicators (located to the right of the scale) can be adjusted to delineate a patient's green, yellow, and red zones based on personal best peak flow.
Available in Full (60-810 L/min) and Low (50-390 L/min) ranges.
