Asthma Control Test™
Do you know your asthma score?
With asthma, coping isn’t controlling. Take the first step towards staying ahead of asthma by finding out what your asthma score is.
The Asthma Control TestTM (for ages 12 and above) and Childhood Asthma Control Test (for ages 4 to 11) are quick ways for you to determine your level of asthma control. You only need to answer a few – 5 for adults, 7 for children – multiple choice questions.
The answers and scores will help your doctor advise you on how to reach the best asthma control possible. That means you:
- Hardly or never get daytime asthma symptoms (two times or less a week)
- Rarely need your quick-relief medication for your symptoms (two times or less a week)
- Rarely wake up at night because of asthma (two times or less a week)
- Are not limited in your activities due to asthma
What the scores indicate
- If the score is 20 or above
It may mean you’re doing okay – your asthma may be well controlled.
- If the score is 19 or less
It indicates there may be more you can do for your asthma
Whatever your score, show the completed test to your doctor to discuss your asthma. Also, ask about having an Asthma Action Plan.
Take the Asthma Control Test
As your asthma may change over time, take this test periodically so that you and your doctor can monitor your level of asthma control together.
(For ages 12 and above)
(For ages 4 to 11)
