TAKE THE ASTHMA CONTROL TEST!
Are you in control of your asthma or your child’s asthma? Take the Asthma Control Test to find out.
The Asthma Control Test is a five-question test that measures whether a person is in control of his or her asthma. It is available for children 4 to 11 years old, and for ages 12 through adult.
MAKE AN ASTHMA ACTION PLAN!
Are you or your child living with asthma, but don’t yet have an Asthma Action Plan?
All people with asthma should have an Asthma Action Plan, also called an asthma management plan. This is a written document that you develop with your doctor to help control your asthma. The plan:
- Shows daily treatment, such as what kind of medicines to take and when to take them;
- Describes how to control asthma long-term;
- Explains how to handle worsening asthma symptoms or asthma attacks; and
- Explains when to call the doctor or go to the emergency room.
Make an Asthma Action Plan with your/your child’s doctor. Share this plan with coaches and school officials (if applicable).
Update the Asthma Action Plan at least yearly.
