Under Control

How do I know if my child's asthma is under control?

If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, your child's asthma may be out of control:

  • Does your child have asthma symptoms during the day more than twice per week?
  • Does your child have asthma symptoms during the night more than twice per month?
  • Is your child using their rescue inhaler more than twice per week?
  • Is your child having difficulty with exercise because of their asthma?

The Asthma Control Test is a simple tool you can use to assess your child's asthma control. Go to www.asthmacontrol.com.
