Using Asthma on the Run

This film shows how science teacher Stuart Murphy uses the Asthma on the Run video to engage the students at the start of the lesson and to introduce practical activities related to lung function.

Students carry out peak flow tests, measure total lung volume, blood oxygen levels and measure the effects of exercise to investigate lung function.
