Peak expiratory flow rates (PEFRs) were measured in 424 healthy subjects (213 males and 211 females) from Karachi and Rawalpindi regions of Pakistan. The mean age, height and peak expiratory flow rate for males were 32.82 ± 10.52 yr, 163.5 ± 5.4 cm and 478.6 ± 63.2l/min respectively. The corresponding values for females were 35.54 ± 6.98 yr, 157.34 ± 8.2cm and 422.5 ± 42.6 l/min respectively. Body height was found to have a positive correlation with PEFR (JPMA:34: 363 1984).
