Could some of you offer your peak flow meter results so I can have comparison with mine? I can't blow over a 250. I am on Spiriva and Albuteral. Any suggestions? Thank you so much- I don't feel short of breath until I exercise or walk real fast or far.
Peak flow values are very personal. 250 maybe perfectly normal and healthy for you for you.
Here is a link to normal values. These are averages by gender, height and age. Your values may be very different from these "predicted" values. For example the charts say that I should be around 445, but my personal best is 590. I am VERY sick when I am at the predicted value.
