Is Your Asthma Well-Controlled?

FIND OUT AND GET CONTROL WITH AAFA’S ASTHMA PACT

Click to start the PACT!Asthma can be controlled and AAFA can help you do it. AAFA’s Asthma PACT™ (Personalized Assessment and Control Tools) page is full of free information and resources. Use it to help assess and personalize your plan to improve your asthma control. Controlling your asthma is the key to having a "life without limits." That means having very few symptoms, rarely waking up at night, and having no restrictions of your normal daily activities.

The Asthma Guidelines1 have slightly different criteria for asthma control in children and adults.

Children (ages 0 - 11)

  • Children whose asthma is under control should not have asthma symptoms more than two days a week, and not more than once on each day.
  • Children whose asthma is under control should not wake up at night due to asthma more than once a month.
  • Children whose asthma is under control should not have to alter any normal activities due to asthma.

Adults (ages 12 and older)

  • Adults whose asthma is under control should not have asthma symptoms more than two days a week, and not more than once on each day.
  • Adults whose asthma is under control should not wake up at night due to asthma more than two times a month.
  • Adults whose asthma is under control should not have to alter any normal activities due to asthma.
