An asthma attack is frightening and can be potentially life-threatening. Asthma attacks are indicated in advance by low peak flow values, which can be detected with the Microlife asthma Monitor. Using the asthma monitor in conjunction with a doctor's consultation, helps patients with lung diseases manage their condition. Studies have shown that patients who regularly monitor their peak flow or spirometry and discuss results with their doctors have fewer severe asthma attacks. This high quality medical device measures both Peak expiratory Flow (PeF) and Forced expiratory Volume (FeV1) in 1 second. Monitoring your peak flow regularly can help control respiratory diseases, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis or CoPd (Chronic obstructive Pulmonary disease e.g. smoker). Microlife's monitor is very easy to use, and works for both children and adults. It can store up to 240 memories, so you will not need a pen to write your results down.

With the help of your doctor, you will be able to determine your ideal values, meaning, those values that you can reach under optimal circumstances, with no asthma symptoms, and feeling well overall. By using Microlife® asthma Monitor, you will be able to see if your values are within the following ranges:
Green: 80~100% of your ideal capacity. Green indicates that your respiratory disease or asthma is under control.
Yellow: 60~80% of your ideal capacity. If your values fall constantly within this range, talk to your doctor, as it may be necessary to change your medicine dose or seek an alternative treatment.
Red: under 60% This indicates that an asthma attack can happen shortly, therefore we recommend you follow your doctor's instruction or seek immediate medical assistance.
