Asthma peak flow measurements

Hello

Where on earth can I find a chart to show what a 10 year old girl's peak flow should be?

We've been given a Mini Wright peak flow tube.

Thank you xx

I use these - the adult one seems to align to what the doctors measure me against.

Thank you.

I just cannot seem to find one for kids!

Im going to ring Asthma UK and try to find out.

Be wary of charts showing what thing should be. I was told to make sure I knew what my 'healthy day' peak flow was,as I kept getting high readings when I was poorly; fact was, my 'usual' flow was extremely high for someone my size so when I was poorly it didn't look abnormal.
