Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) measurement often appears in OSCEs and involves a combination of both information giving (explaining the procedure) and the practical clinical skill of performing PEFR measurement. The communication skills aspect of this station is where most of the marks lie, so ensure you provide a clear explanation of the procedure to the patient, checking understanding and summarising as you go along.
