Findings presented recently at the meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology gave a thumbs-up to the Childhood Asthma Control Test. Researchers touted the 7-question quiz as a reliable and accurate method of judging asthma control in children aged 4 to 11 years.
The test traces asthma symptoms to guide parents and physicians in determining whether a child's asthma is under control. It is the first validated asthma evaluation tool to involve both children and their parents/caregivers. The researchers reported that the Childhood Asthma Control Test accurately classified a child's asthma control level in 72% of the cases.
