Asthma Management--By Risks, Conditions, and Quality of Life Measures

An asthma management plan is a printed form that tells when to change the amount or type of
medicine, when to call the doctor for advice, and when to go to the emergency room.

an asthma management plan?

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
