What Was Measured?

The percentage of children in the health plan, ages 5-18, who have asthma, got the right medicine — called anti-inflammatories or controller drugs — for their asthma.

Why Is It Important?

Children who have asthma can have asthma attacks that are painful and frightening and even deadly. Using asthma medicines regularly can help prevent these attacks and avoid the wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath that the attacks bring.

Asthma Medicine for Children

Look for differences of at least 4%. Smaller differences usually are not significant.
