To assess level of asthma control and to identify possible disease management problems for patients with asthma. Surveys were mailed to a random sample of eligible participants, including the ACT, the Asthma Therapy Assessment Questionnaire (ATAQ), Mini Asthma. The Asthma Therapy Assessment Questionnaire (ATAQ), developed and distributed by Merck & Company, Inc., was used to evaluate the.

Eur Respir J ; 31 1: The minimum clinically important difference for a tool is the smallest change in score that can be considered clinically important.
Asthma control, severity, and quality of life: Analysis of a multinational cross-sectional survey. These barriers were the study outcome measures. Respir Med ; 4: Responsiveness Schatz et al 13 reported that changes in ACT scores were strongly correlated with changes in ACQ scores, moderately correlated with changes in specialist control ratings, and weakly correlated with change in percent-of-predicted FEV 1 values. J Nurs Res ; 15 2: Finally, responsiveness is the tool’s ability to detect important changes over time.
Respir Med ; 99 5: Later, an adult version was developed. Quality of life in asthma: Validity and reliability evidence of the Asthma Control Test: Asthma Control Assessment Tools. Evaluation of the Asthma Control Test: ATAQ demonstrated good internal consistency and the hypothesized relationships to corresponding measures from existing instruments.
You are going to email the following Asthma Control Assessment Tools. Gathering and Using Data 4A. Web-based diaries and the asthma control test. J Allergy Clin Immunol ; 2 Pt 1: The authors reported a test-retest reliability of 0. Each item is scored on a 5-point scale with the descriptors: The ACQ has shown high reliability in adult subjects who remained clinically stable between consecutive visits to the clinic an intraclass correlation coefficient of 0.
The child-reported questions, rated on 4-point Likert scale, include daytime and activity limitation due to asthma symptoms, nocturnal awakenings due to asthma, and self-perceptions of asthma; the caregiver-reported questions, rated on 6-point Likert scale, include asking about the child’s daytime and nocturnal symptoms. Knowledge of the psychometric properties of asthma control assessment tools is critical to ensure that the tool selected will measure the desired outcome.
Current asthma control predicts future risk of asthma exacerbation: Topics included symptoms of asthma; recognition of triggers and warning signs of asthmatic attacks; medications and other treatments for asthma; use and care of peak flow meters, nebulizers, and metered-dose inhalers; handling of emergencies; and ways to keep an asthma diary.
The LASS has been developed to measure asthma control in both children 73 and adults 74 with asthma. Nonetheless, considerable differences between them still exist. Ideally, the complete 7-item ACQ should be used.
CDC – Asthma – Potentially Effective Interventions for Asthma – Adults – Worksite
J Asthma ; 49 Respondents are graded as either having or not having a control problem in each one of these 4 items; the item scores are then summed to provide a total, which ranges from 0 no asthma control problems to 4 4 asthma control problems. However, a trained interviewer is required to administer asthja questionnaire to children 6—10 y old. Because those tools were designed to capture the overall level of asthma control, there are many similarities in their content.
Sullivan et al 68 reported that the costs for uncontrolled asthma, as indicated by the ATAQ score, were more than double those with scores indicating controlled asthma.
ATAQ – Asthma Therapy Assessment Questionnaire
The ACT is a multidimensional, standardized, and validated tool and the most widely used tool for assessing asthma control in patients with asthma older than 12 y. Eur Respir J ; 36 6: Accuracy An ATAQ score of 1 or greater was used as an established cutoff value for uncontrolled versus controlled asthma. Both the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Expert Panel Report 3 and the Global Initiative for Asthma guidelines identify achieving and maintaining asthma control afaq goals of therapy, and they emphasize periodic assessment of asthma control once treatment is established.
The reliability of the ATAQ has not been evaluated for the adult version.
Abstract Both the National Asthma Education and Taaq Program Expert Panel Report 3 and the Global Initiative for Asthma guidelines identify achieving and maintaining asthma control as goals of therapy, and they emphasize periodic assessment of asthma control once treatment is established.
Quality of asthma care: Accurate assessment of asthma control is difficult due to the complexity of asthma control and due to the limitations in the traditional methods of assessment, such as lung function tests, physician assessment, and patients’ self-assessment.
Asthma Therapy Assessment Questionnaire (ATAQ)
Validation of the Arabic version of the Asthma Control Test. Asthma Control Test The ACT is a multidimensional, standardized, and validated tool and the most widely used tool for assessing asthma control in patients with asthma older than 12 y. The association between asthma control and health care utilization, work productivity loss and health-related quality of life.
Measuring asthma ataqq is the first step to patient management: Characteristics of Asthma Control Assessment Tools. An English and Spanish pediatric asthma symptom scale.
A worksite-based asthma education program. Responsiveness Changes in the cACT scores correlated well with changes in specialists’ ratings of asthma control but correlated poorly with changes in peak expiratory flow aathma.
Internal consistency and validity of the SF- 36 questionnaire.
This finding limits the ability to use these tools interchangeably. Introduction Asthma continues to be a common disease associated with high mortality and high economic and social tolls despite the advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology of asthma, the availability of effective preventive therapy, and the availability of international treatment guidelines.
It is estimated that million people of all ages and diverse ethnicities suffer from asthma, and about 1 in every is estimated to die from asthma worldwide. A trained clinical asthma nurse specialist conducted the sessions.
