Peak Flow Meters
A peak flow meter is a device used to measure lung capacity and lung functionality. Sometimes referred to as a spirometer, peak flow meters compliment neb sets and neb machines very well because a peak flow meter will show you how well your body is receiving a nebulizer treatment. Spirometers like the AirLife AirX are used not only to test lung function, but are also used as an exerciser meant to help you increase your lung volume by keeping the internal ball suspended with your breath. If you use a nebulizer or have asthma, highly consider purchasing a peak flow meter so you may better gauge how well your lungs are functioning.
