The Mini-Wright™ Digital PEF and FEV1 Peak Flow Monitor helps in the management of both asthma and COPD by measuring, not only peak expiratory flow (PEF), but also forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), which is the volume of air expelled in the first second after inhaling a deep breath. Both of these measurements reveal how well air is moving through your airways. Lower PEF and/or FEV1 levels indicate a narrowing of the airways.
The Mini-Wright Digital performs PEF and FEV1 measurements easily, intelligently and accurately at the touch of a button. The device remembers up to 240 of each of your readings, so that you can keep track of them like your doctor recommended. Plus, its zoning function helps to provide feedback on the state of your asthma at any one time based on your peak flow numbers. Easily customized, the Mini-Wright Digital ergonomically fits in the palm of your hand and features a water-tight seal for worry-free cleaning. 1-Year Manufacturer's Limited Warranty.
What Comes with the Mini-Wright™ Digital Peak Flow Meter?
|¹||The included reusable adapter allows an Adult Disposable Mouthpiece to be attached to the device (or a Mini-Wright ribbed adapter can be attached to the device when a Pediatric Disposable Mouthpiece is required).|

This device may be used by for multi-patient screenings. You will need the reusable adapter that came with the device. Fit the oval end of the adapter over the neck of the device. If you will be testing adults, simply insert an Adult Disposable Mouthpiece¹ into the adapter. If you will be testing children or patients with smaller mouths, you will need to use a Pediatric Disposable Mouthpiece,¹ which gets attached to the device in one of two ways, depending on which pediatric mouthpiece you are using:
|¹||The "through and through" Adult and Pediatric Disposal Mouthpieces are available through National Allergy Supply.|
|²||We apologize, but we do not carry the "one-way valve" expiratory Adult Disposable Mouthpiece (Mini-Wright part # 3122064).|

Overall, I liked this product. Super Easy to Use. Only drawback for me is the mouthpiece is a little too large when on, but when taken off the device is too small itself making it a little more tricky to blow into it to get an accurate reading. (Posted on 7/10/10)
