Abstract

: Children identified as having poor asthma control using the pediatric ATAQ instrument had significantly higher rates of asthma-related hospitalizations, ER or urgent care visits, and doctor visits than those with good control. This asthma control measure may be useful in identifying children in need of more intensive asthma management.
