Both groups were assessed by carrying out their peak expiratory flow rate
via standard peak expiratory flow rate
Mathur, "Statistical models relating peak expiratory flow rates
to age, height, and weight in men and women," Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, vol.
Two European studies have reported that airborne iron was possibly associated with a decline in peak expiratory flow rate
(PEFR), production of phlegm, or exacerbation of respiratory symptoms (Dusseldorp et al.
Laboratory studies have found that the Mapleson C circuit has a higher peak expiratory flow rate
than the Laerdal circuit (Maxwell and Ellis 2003, Savian et al 2005) which may explain the increased amount of secretion clearance obtained with the Mapleson C compared to the Laerdal circuit in this trial.

The association of ambient air pollution with twice daily peak expiratory flow rate
measurements in children.
This article describes a pilot study using a Free-Running Asthma Screening Test (FRAST) and peak expiratory flow rate
(PEFR) measurements in screening 437 school-age children for EIA in rural Alabama.
To correlate FVC volume forcibly exhaled in one second (FEV1), and peak expiratory flow rate
(PEFR) in diabetes patients and duration of disease.
* The peak expiratory flow rate
(PEFR, also known as a peak flow) is the maximal rate that a person can exhale during a short maximal expiratory effort after a full inspiration.
The means height, weight, forced expiratory volume in 1 second, force vital capacity and peak expiratory flow rate
were 137.3713.41cm, 30.448.56kg, 1.560.58, 1.720.50 and 3.661.10, respectively.
Spirometery on urban and rural children showed that peak expiratory flow rate
(PEFR) values correlate best with height; there was no difference in sex, religion, and urban/rural children.
One clinical parameter, peak expiratory flow rate
(PEFR), was reported in 6 of the studies.
