Asthma Clinic

Fact or Fiction?
 
A Canadian survey of 893 adult asthma patients revealed that 97% of the patients believed that their asthma was well controlled.  In reality, when they were tested, only 47% of those patients were controlled according to the Canadian Asthma Consensus Guidelines.  If you're not sure how well controlled your patient is or, if you have asthma, how you are doing, inquire about a breathing test or check out " The 30 Second Asthma Test."
