ALVEAR T, GONZALO; FIGUEROA R, LIDIA; HURTADO G, JAVIERA  y  MOYANO M, LUIS. Assessment of the degree of asthma control in a primary care center. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.2, pp.68-76. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482016000200002.

Achieve a good clinical control by reducing symptoms and management of modifiable risk factors for exacerbations is the main goal of asthma treatment. Our objective was to assess the degree of clinical control and the presence of modifiable risk factors of exacerbations in asthmatic patients controlled in primary care. Data were extracted from clinical records of asthmatics attending their scheduled visit between November 2014 and June 2015. In each visit the Asthma Control Test was performed. 236 visits (183 patients) were analyzed. 10% had totally controlled asthma, 34% partially controlled and 56% uncontrolled. The worst clinical control was significantly associated with greater use of health resources. 92% had modifiable risk factors of exacerbation, mainly obesity and active smoking.
