    A comparison has been made of the new peak flow gauge and the Wright peak flow meter. Close correlation was found between measurements made with the two instruments both in normal subjects and in patients. The peak flow gauge is as consistent as the peak flow meter but is cheaper and more portable. It should be useful in survey work in general practice and for loan from hospital outpatient departments where serial measurements are used to monitor patients' progress.
