This device is used to measure Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) and Forced Expiratory Volume in 1-second (FEV1) in both children and adults. PEF is the fastest speed air can be blown out of the lungs after inhalation. FEV1 measures the volume after exhaling in 1-second. Peak Flow (PEF) and Forced Expiratory Volume in 1-second (FEV1) measurements can tell how well lungs are breathing by monitoring airflow. Doctors can have patients monitor changes in airflow and record the results. The automatic memory stores and provides easy access to the last 240 readings along with the time and date.

Another way I judge a product is based on how a company stands behind it. When I couldn't get any readings from this meter, I called the company--twice. Both times, I got a recorded message saying I'd get a call back within two hours. I never heard from the company at all.
The good news is that Amazon was terrific about making the return easy. The bad news is that the product was worthless.
A Spirometer measures the total volume of air that can be exhaled or inhaled. It can also measure the rate at which a certain volume of air is expelled from the lungs. A Peak Flow Meter, on the other hand, only measures the rate at which air is forced out of the lungs. This is known as the peak expiratory flow.
Some reviews here seem to have the two confused so I wanted to get that out of the way.
I have a manual Peak Flow Meter from the Doctor and never used it much for my Asthma.
Needed to use up some FSA money before the end of the year and this item fit the bill as the price was just right.
The item arrived with the box containing everything that comes with the item (USB cable, batteries, spare mouth pieces, directions and a nifty carrying case).
The included directions are good enough to setup and operate the device. I downloaded the software from Microlife's website for free, installed it on a Windows XP Computer without issue (I think the software supports later versions).
The software is able to communicate with the unit and pull the readings. Setting up the software only involves creating a "Patient" by inputting some information. You can create multiple patients which is cool because any device of this type at this price point usually doesn't support multiple users. So while it's cumbersome using this device along with the software it's possible to save readings for multiple patients.
The software allows for printing graphs or just the data so I can take them to my doctor's appointments as he's always asking me if I use a Peak Flow Meter and what are the readings. You can also export the data to a CSV (Comma, Separated Value) file.
This brings up an important point. All Peak Flow Meters are designed to aid in the diagnosing and treatment of a respiratory illness. Which means you should be seeing a doctor to help interrupt the results and plan your treatment.
I took several readings with this meter then several with the manually operated one the doc gave me and they were very close so I have confidence this device is working as intended.
All in all I am happy with my purchase. I refrained from rating it 5 stars as anything can be improved upon.
Asthma or COPD cannot be cured but effectively managed. This device does what it's supposed to do and aids in that.
As to its value as a spirometer, it is very consistent and the readings seem to align with my perceptions of my performance when using it.
