Asthma control test questions
 
 
 
 
 

 Your Asthma Control Test score (ACT) is:

Height and Weight
 
Body Mass Index (BMI):
 
BMI 20-25 - ideal range
BMI 25-30 - overweight
BMI > 30 - obese
A high BMI is associated with worsening symptoms of asthma including breathlessness and cough. It is imperative to have a healthy BMI to ensure good asthma control
Smoking

Medication
Using inhaled medication is not as simple as it may seem. There are all sorts of different inhalers and some of them will need to be used in a different way to others. If inhalers are not used with the correct technique, it is possible that the medication won't reach your lungs and you will suffer unwanted side effects. Please click on the link to view Rightbreathe and find your inhaler webpage. Then click on the video which will give you a demonstration on how to correctly use the inhaler.
If you use a metered dose inhaler (the inhaler that sprays out the medication when you press it) then using a spacer device (pictured opposite) will enable much better delivery of the medication to your lungs. Just check the boxes below and we will prescribe it for you with your next batch of inhalers (please note a spacer cannot be used with dry powder inhalers - these are the ones where you suck the medication out of the chamber).
