OBJECTIVE To determine whether lung function alters asthma severity based on symptom history in asthmatic adolescents. DESIGN Data on asthma symptoms and lung function were collected from adolescents randomly selected from the general population. SETTING Five schools from the central Wellington, New Zealand, area during 2003 to 2005. PARTICIPANTS Two hundred twenty-four secondary school students aged 13 to 17 years (asthmatic, 118; nonasthmatic, 106). MAIN EXPOSURES Asthma questionnaire… CONTINUE READING
