Description

The Rossmax Peak Flow Meter is a compact, lightweight and portable device that measures peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), an important indicator of your lung function. The device has three built-in zone management systems that make it easy for users to read. Measurement of the device can range from 60-800 L/min. It is designed for adult use and is also suitable for use with a disposable mouthpiece. The peak flow meter should be used for monitoring respiratory conditions such as asthma. Taking peak flow measures every day and keeping a record of the peak flow measures in your “peak flow diary” can help you and your doctor make important decisions about your treatment. You should use this meter and set its colour zone indicators according to a treatment plan developed for you by your doctor.
The 3 colour-coded indicators adjust to delineate a patient’s green (good), yellow (warning) and red (dangerous) zones:

  • Green – Follow your regular medication plan, and go ahead with normal activities (80-100% of best reading)
  • Yellow – Caution, your asthma might be worsening. Follow your medication instructions to get back to your green zone (50-80% of best reading)
  • Red – Medical alert, get medical advice and attention immediately (< 50% of best reading)

 

Uses

The Rossmax Peak Flow Meter is used to measure peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), an important indicator of your lung function. Peak Flow Meter should be used for monitoring respiratory conditions such as asthma.

 

Application

How to record your peak expiratory flow rate:
• This meter was designed to make following your asthma treatment plan easy
• Your doctor will set the colour zone indicators to your personalized zones based on your personal best peak expiratory flow rate value (the best peak flow value you can achieve)
• Do not change the position of the colour zone indicators yourself – if this should occur inadvertently, contact your doctor or specialist nurse for advice
• Reading should be taken twice a day, first in the morning and at bed time, or directed by your physician
• When you blow into your peak flow meter, the indicator will rise to your peak flow value. Your peak flow measurement will fall into one of three zones:
o Green – Follow your regular medication plan, and go ahead with normal activities (80-100% of best reading)
o Yellow – Caution, your asthma might be worsening. Follow your medication instructions to get back to your green zone (50-80% of best reading)
o Red – Medical alert, get medical advice and attention immediately (< 50% of best reading)


Cleaning:
• Clean at least once every week by immersing peak flow meter in warm (but not hot) mild detergent water solution for 2-3 minutes (max 5 minutes)
• Agitate the meter to ensure through cleaning
• Rinse in clean warm water and shake gently to remove any excess water and air dry completely before using again
