Answer

Outpatient visits should include the following:

  • Interval history of asthmatic complaints, including history of acute episodes (eg, severity, measures and treatment taken, response to therapy)

  • History of nocturnal symptoms

  • History of symptoms with exercise, and exercise tolerance

  • Review of medications, including use of rescue medications

  • Review of home-monitoring data (eg, symptom diary, peak flow meter readings, daily treatments)
