Assess® Full Range Peak Flow Meter by Respironics, measures the peak speed at which you expel air from your lungs (called peak expiratory flow or PEF), and is an essential tool in gauging how well your airways are working. The higher the PEF, the more open your airways. The lower the PEF, the more narrow your airways (as in asthma). Using the Assess peak flow meter can help you identify triggers, detect subtle changes, and alert you to asthma flare-ups before they occur. Its large, easy-to read scale, transparent L-shaped construction, removable mouthpiece, and 3 or 4-zone management system using color-coded clips, all work to help you manage your asthma.Replace every 2 years.  1-Year Manufacturer's Warranty.

Assess peak flow meters meet the Technical Standards established by the NAEPP (National Asthma Education and Prevention Program).
