Answer

Several published, but proprietary, questionnaire instruments may be useful in assessing asthma control. Such validated questionnaires include the Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ), the Asthma Therapy Assessment Questionnaire (ATAQ), and the Asthma Control Test (ACT). Low scores (3-4 in ATAQ or ≤15 in ACT) indicate poor control.
