If I use a peak flow meter:

My personal best peak expiratory flow (PEF) is ________

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

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