Whistle Watch, part II

Neglected to mention -- when I spoke to the pulmonologist (in a harried panic the night before we left for holiday) I asked her about the Whistle Watch.

Her take: it's a piece of crap. (She was a bit more diplomatic.) There's a reason they don't trust kids younger than 8 with peak flow meters -- and the fact that this one has a whistle doesn't make it anymore reliable.

So there you have it.
