Topic Overview

Week of ________________________

If I use a peak flow meter:

My personal best peak expiratory flow (PEF) is ________ .

  • My PEF for green zone is ___________ liters per second (80% to 100% of my personal best*).
  • My PEF for yellow zone is ___________ liters per second (50% to less than 80% of my personal best*).
  • My PEF for red zone is less than ________liters per second (less than 50% of my personal best*).

* To figure out 80% of personal best peak flow, multiply your personal best by 0.80. To figure out 50% of personal best peak flow, multiply your personal best by 0.50.

If your peak flow is lower than normal, check your asthma action plan or call your doctor.
