Survey Measurement Instruments
The Asthma Control Questionnaire includes lung function tests and has been extensively evaluated. The Asthma Control Test consists of five survey items and does not include lung function tests: shortness of breath, night-time symptoms, use of rescue medications, daily functioning and overall perceptions of asthma control. A simple sum of the items is used to create a score that indicates 'poor' to 'complete' asthma control.
