Survey Measurement Instruments

The Asthma Control Questionnaire includes lung function tests and has been extensively evaluated.[11] 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.
