Summary: For children with asthma, use of an asthma-action plan (AAP) that is based on symptoms may lead to a lower risk of acute care visits than use of an (AAP) based on peak-flow (PF) measurements, and may be more acceptable to patients (although a PF based AAP may lead to a greater reduction in the number of symptomatic days per week).
