Abstract


Aims: The aim of this study was to correlate the "PEAK EXPIRATORY FLOW RATE" as measured by miniature Wright Peak Flow Meter in normal school children between 5 – 18 years with Weight.
Objectives: This study was done to correlate Weight of healthy school children with PEFR.
Study area: R.G.M. School Sindhanur.
Study design: This is an observational study of 495 urban school going healthy children from SINDHANUR. This sample comprised of 268 boys and 227 girls in the age range of 5- 18 years.
Results: PEFR increases progressively with increase in Weight. The correlation of PEFR with Weight was statistically significant.
Conclusion: The present study has led to the following conclusions.
A. There is a positive and statistically significant correlation between PEFR and Weight in the sample of children selected.
B. Weight has a less closer correlation with PEFR than height.
