Asthma Control Test (For everyone 12 years of age and older): This 5-question quiz will provide you a score to find out if your treatment plan is working :

Please answer all the Question.
1. In the past 4 weeks, how much of the time did your asthma keep you from getting as much done at work, school or at home?  

2. During the past 4 weeks, how often have you had shortness of breath?  

3. During the past 4 weeks, how often did your asthma symptoms (wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, chest tightness or pain) wake you up at night or earlier than usual in the morning?  

4. During the past 4 weeks, how often have you used your rescue inhaler or nebulizer medication (such as albuterol)?  

5. How would you rate your asthma control during the past 4 weeks?  

If you scored 19 or less, it may be an indication that your asthma is not under control. Make an appointment to discuss your Asthma Control Test score with your doctor and ask if you should change your asthma treatment plan.

Ask your doctor about daily long-term medications that can help control airway constriction and inflammation, the two main causes of asthma symptoms. Many people need to treat both of these components of asthma on a daily basis for the best asthma control.

If you scored 20 or more, your asthma seems to be well controlled, but you should discuss your Asthma Control Test score with your doctor at your next appointment.

Asthma is unpredictable. Your asthma symptoms may seem mild or nonexistent, but they can flare up at any time.

Take the Asthma Control Test periodically no matter how good you feel, and continue to see your doctor on a regular basis to ensure you are taking the necessary steps to keep your asthma in control.
