What is an Asthma Action Plan (AAP)?

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states "All people with asthma should have an Asthma Action Plan.  An Asthma Action Plan (also called a management plan) is a written plan that you develop with your doctor to help control your asthma."

The Asthma Action Plan (AAP) lists all medications with instructions on when they should be taken.  It is a simple plan that describes how to achieve long-term control and what to do when asthma symptoms arises. If you or your child do not have an AAP, please download and print one out below.  Bring it to your next medical appointment, so you and your provider can fill out the plan together.
