A peak flow meter can tell if someone's airways have narrowed even before the person coughs, wheezes, or has trouble breathing.</p> <p>To use the peak flow meter, a person blows into it and then checks the reading. It's portable, doesn't need to be plugged in, and you don't need a doctor or nurse to use it. Some people use a peak flow meter at home to see how well they're keeping their asthma under control.</p> Medidor de flujo máximoUn medidor de flujo máximo es un dispositivo portátil manual que se utiliza para medir la exhalación de aire de los pulmones.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/peak-flow-esp.html/c7aee068-1e3c-4464-8cb6-c72c1c49c4b7
