Title Of Study : Peak Expiratory Flow Rate Measure Among Community Dwelling Elderly Rural Population Investigator : Miss. Mishra Ashwini Vidyasagar Guide : Dr Shyam Ganvir, Principal, DDVPF’S college of physiotherapy Introduction : PEFR is a widely used ventilatory function test that is defined as the maximum rate at which air is expired by a subject after a deep inspiration. The peak flow meter helps to assess the airflow through the airways and thus help to determine the degree of obstruction… 
Peak Expiratory Flow Rate Measure among Community Dwelling Elderly Rural Population
TLDR
The result shows the comparison of PEFR values in relation with the normal values of an individuals and comparison with gender and its relation with height and age in the elderly rural population.

Peak expiratory flow rate in elderly Malaysians.
TLDR
The relationship between peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), demographic variables, socioeconomic status, smoking, alcohol use and respiratory symptoms were examined and declined with age, particularly in women of all ages.
Peak expiratory flow rate and 5-year mortality in an elderly population.
TLDR
During a population survey in 1982-1983 among all community-dwelling elderly aged 65 years and over in East Boston, Massachusetts, measurements of peak expiratory flow rate using the mini-Wright peak flow meter were made, indicating that peak flow rate is a strong independent predictor of total mortality in the elderly.
Peak expiratory flow is a prognostic indicator in elderly people
TLDR
Using peak expiratory flow rate as an indicator of lung function in elderly populations the authors have obtained similar results as well as a part of a large prospective study on the peak expIRatory flow of random people in four elderly birth populations.
Variations in the peak expiratory flow rate with various factors in a population of healthy women of the malwa region of punjab, India.
TLDR
The PEFR increased with an increase in the age, height, weight and the BSA, but it decreased with an increases in the BMI.
An Evaluation of Peak Expiratory Flow Monitoring: A Comparison of Sitting Versus Standing Measurements
TLDR
Based on the results of this study it may not be necessary for the patient to stand while performing peak expiratory flow measurements, and further study among patients with asthma is warranted.
Respiratory symptoms, lung function, and mortality in a screening center cohort.
TLDR
It seems clear, based on these results and other published studies, that symptoms of cough, phlegm, and/or wheeze have important adverse health implications even in the absence of smoking and reduced lung function.
Comparison of PEFR and FEV1 in patients with varying degrees of airway obstruction. Effect of modest altitude.
TLDR
PEFR, measured by either waterless spirometer or mini-Wright peak flow meter, has greater intrasubject variability than FEV1, and it tends to underestimate the degree of pulmonary impairment.
Correlation of peak expiratory flow rate with age and anthropometric parameters in elderly (>65 years) -
TLDR
It was concluded that with advancing age, the PEFR declines, and the mean PEFR values of taller subjects were also higher, than in healthy men aged ≥65 years.
Peak expiratory flow rates of healthy school boys from Himachal Pradesh (north India).
Factors affecting normal values for ventilatory lung function.
TLDR
The ventilatory function of the New Guinea coastal population was similar to that of other non-European populations whereas that of the highland population wasSimilar to that in populations of populations of European descent.
