Asthma is a chronic disorder characterized by airflow obstruction, causing chest tightness, wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. In California, 7.9% of patients have an asthma diagnosis. The 2007 NHLBI Expert Panel Report 3 recommended using asthma action plans in asthma management (NHLBI, 2007). Patients with asthma were taught to use an AAP to improve asthma control. Overall, 80% of patients improved by at least one EPR3 asthma control category.
