Check Asthma Control

At planned follow-up visits, asthma patients should review level of control with their health care provider based on multiple measures of current impairment and future risk in order to guide clinician decisions to either maintain or adjust therapy.

EPR-3 Recommendation

The Expert Panel recommends that every patient who has asthma be taught to recognize symptom patterns and/or Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) measures that indicate inadequate asthma control and the need for additional therapy, and that control be routinely monitored to assess whether the goals of therapy are being met – that is, whether impairment and risk are reduced.
