Pediatric Asthma: Childhood Asthma Control Test


Recent studies have shown that many asthma patients mistakenly believe they have their asthma under control. A simple questionnaire can identify children and adults with poorly controlled asthma who needlessly suffer asthma symptoms that limit their daily activities.

A panel of asthma specialists developed two questionnaires - one for children ages 4-11 and another for those ages 12-60+. Download the Childhood Asthma Control Test (pdf).

Each question offers several answers, which are scored on a scale of 0 to 5. Patients whose combined score is 19 or less are deemed to have asthma that is not well controlled and are advised to talk to their healthcare provider about their asthma.
