Personal Best Peak Flow Meter
The Personal Best Peak Flow Meter measures peak expiratory flow in order to monitor respiratory conditions such as asthma. Peak flow monitoring measures how quickly a patient can expel air from the lungs, and when done regularly, can help patients and doctors manage asthma. Personal Best can help you make informed decisions about medication and emergency care by enabling you to track and log respiration from day to day.
Contents include: one asthma meter unit, instructions for use, daily record chart, and companion card.
Also available in a Low Range model (50-390 L/min) for small children or those unable to achieve a high PEF (sold separately).
I bought this and when I got it I loved the fact that it has its own case so it can be kept clean! I also loved the price, its good quality with an even better price.
- Best one around!
I have been using a Personal Best peak flow meter for several years now. I like that it has a cover and is compact. The numbers are easy to read. This is the second time I have purchased one from Achoo Allergy and they are great.
- Perfect for travel/office
This PFM is portable & easy to use. It fits easily in my briefcase & carry-on bag. It eliminates excuses not to use it, too. On my last trip to my mother's, a long-time asthma sufferer, I showed it to her. She'd never used one. She was delighted that it would fit in her purse and give her a way to monitor her expiratory rate. I highly recommend this device to anyone with respiratory issues!
- I like this one the best!
It's compact,and has it's own cover.
- very easy to use
Very easy to use. Results are easy to read. Excellent design for easy storage and travel.
- Handy Check
For managing asthma, this Peak flow meter allows you to set your green, yellow and red zones. These don't move, so it reminds you where you are with your lung function. Also folds up small and doesn't take a whole drawer to store. It is even small enough to carry in a pocket or bag. Very discreet.
- It takes the guessing out!
Recently, and surprisingly diagnosed with asthma, I found it difficult to know when I was to use my rescue inhaler. The Peak Flow Meter has taken the guessing out of when I need it! Small, light and compact, this handy device is a gem!
- Personal Best Peak Flow Meter
The best one I have tried. Easy for my seven year old.
- Just Trying To Breath!
I recently bought the Personal Best Peak Flow Meter and chose it because of the convenient size of it and it seemed like it was going to be pretty easy to use and understand. It turns out I was right. I suffered for two days hardly being able to breath because of alergies and sinus problems, which really scared me. Once I even went to the emergency room not knowing what was going on and the doctor mentioned if I had been using a peak flow meter. After the last two day scare I looked up on the internet and purchased one. Your company shipped it out quickly which was a huge relief to me.While I am still not at the mark I need to be - I feel a tremendous sense of security using this meter daily as a guide. It is all it claims to be and more - you can say personal "peace of mind" about the product. I have no regrets about buying it nor ordering from your company. Thank you and Bless you for helping me!
- excellent and reliable
this is a very reliable peak flow meter - the most accurate one i've used. it's simple, the cap keeps it clean, and its flat design makes it easy to take with you or pack.

Directions for Use:
Please see the Owner's Manual tab for full instructions on using and cleaning the Personal Best® Full Range Peak Flow Meter.
- Multi-Patient Use:
Please follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning the peak flow meter. Generally, the device should be cleaned at least every 2 weeks using warm water with a mild liquid soap, then rinsed and air dried. The device is dishwasher safe (top rack). Do not boil or autoclave.
Replace the peak flow meter every 2 years. For multi-patient use, replace more frequently.
Personal Best peak flow meters are designed and intended for single-patient use. The device may be used for multi-patient use so long as it is cleaned thoroughly after each use and disposable mouthpieces are used. To reduce the risk of cross-contamination during multi-patient screenings, it is recommended that one-way valve Safety disposable mouthpieces (Respironics Part # HS714¹) be used. The one-way valve prevents patients from inadvertently breathing in air through the meter during PEF testing.
