New Five-Question Test Helps Assess Asthma Control In Children Under Five Years Of Age
Date:7/17/2009

opment stage, five final questions were drawn from 33-item draft questionnaire about guidelines-based asthma impairment and risk that best classified controlled and uncontrolled patients based on physicians' ratings of control. These questions were then tested for reliability and validity. The results of this study provide the first evidence for the validation of a caregiver-completed asthma control tool for children younger than five years of age with symptoms consistent with asthma. The study is published in the April 2009 issue of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

About Asthma in Children
Asthma is a reversible obstructive lung disease caused by increased reaction of the airways to a variety of stimuli. Undiagnosed asthma has serious health consequences and can be life-threatening if not properly managed.4 Emergency department visit rates for asthma are highest among children under five years old,5 indicating a general need to improve the delivery of effective asthma management treatments to this age group.
