Mini-Wright Digital Oasys
Oasys has made an agreement with Clement Clarke to allow automatic entry of peak expiratory flow (PEF) and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1
This saves the time associated with hand entry and ensures that the results are accurate as transcription errors are not possible and patients are not able to falsify readings (although a friend or relative could "have a go" with the meter and add spurios readings).
A special "Oasys" version of the Mini Wright Digital meter is required, which can be bought from Clement Clarke on their Mini Wright Digital Oasys
ordering page. The Oasys program itself is provided free of charge.
The maximum reading on a Mini Wright digital is 850 L/Min, if a patient blows above this the meter records 0 L/Min. Patients with unusually high PEF will need to be given a different meter. The meter is waterproof and can be submersed in order to sterilise it. As a result of this the battery is not removable in the device and once it runs out the meter will need to be thrown away. The battery lasts about 2 years, depending on use.
