ERS VIRTUAL CONGRESS 5-9 September 2020

The ERS Congress was to be held for the 5th time in Vienna, but is now virtual due to COVID-19

ERS International Congresses

In 2020, the European Respiratory Society (ERS) was to celebrate its 30th anniversary in Vienna, the city that hosted the 21st ERS Congress. But because of COVID-19 the congress is now virtual. Vitalograph has several ERS members who will be joining in the virtual sessions. Vitalograph has attended and exhibited at every one of the previous 29 international congresses.

The genesis of the ERS was the merger of two European scientific societies: the Societas Europaea Physiologiae Clinicae Respoiratoriae (SEPCR), founded in 1966 and the European Society of Pneumology (SEP), founded in 1981. The merge took place in London in 1990 during the joint meeting of SEPCR and SEP; the late Stewart Clark was the President of the unified Society. This unification brought together the basic scientists of SEPCR with the clinicians of SEP in a harmonious relationship, and is considered the driving force behind the successful story of the ERS.

SEP/SEPCR Congresses

Vitalograph attended many SEPCR/SEP and earlier respiratory meetings and congresses from 1951 onwards. From 1951 to 1964 under the company name Garthur (London) Ltd, which is still a Vitalograph subsidiary. Garthur services and distributed cardio respiratory medical devices which led to the formation of Vitalograph which has designed and manufactured respiratory diagnostic devices since 1963.
