Vitalograph recently visited St Bede's School in Romford, Essex to host an asthma awareness event in support of World Asthma Day 2008. The event was attended by the school council of pupils aged 6-11 years; also in attendance was 'Peter the Peak Flow Meter', a life size model of the Vitalograph asma-1 electronic peak flow meter.
The children took part in a fun quiz aimed at raising their awareness of asthma and how the condition can be controlled. The children received balloons and t-shirts donated by the British Lung Foundation.
