Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Dr Sue Levy (X): maximum EXPIRATORY flow or peak (expiratory) flow rate// EXPIRATION is not an option - it is incorrect - and there are 187,000 hits for peak expiratory flow rate which is the best translation here
7 hrs
  -> You are probably correct, since there are 391 hits for "maximum expiratory flow rate" and only 11 hits for "maximum expiration flow rate". I'll add this option to the glossary and advise the asker. Thank you, Sue.
