Peak flow, tests and other information

Peak flow recording for the occupational lung disease clinic

Peak flow measurements

You will be shown how to use a simple device known as a peak flow meter, and make measurements with it every two hours for about a month. We appreciate that this requires quite a lot of work from you, but it is a very important test which helps us to reach a diagnosis in many cases.

  • You can download the instructions for the self-measurement of peak flow readings in Word and PDF format
  • You can download a useful form to write your peak flow readings and other important information in Word and PDF format
  • You can bring this record to clinic with you or send us a copy in advance, either by e-mail or post (please keep a copy if you post it, in case we do not receive it)
