  could somebody please explain how to calculate 40% PEFR as according to ccs software normal is >350.
1)Big dilema with calculation as PEFR % dictates treatment. The case in uworld had pefr of 250 on presenation and improved to 304 which is almost 70%, but explanation is quite controversial-because you can send the patient home if >70%, however they did admit the patient.
2)in the explanation in clock managemnt in uworld , pefr is ordered very late after treatment.
However in the explanation they say that depending on pefr you decide whether to give ipratropium in the first instance and whether you give oral or iv dexamethasone?
3)when is the right time to order pefr,
@is it after physical exanm along with albuterol nebs

Please help
