Child Asthma Risk Assessment Tool© (CARAT)


This risk assessment tool rapidly provides a personal risk profile for a child with asthma. A detailed questionnaire looks at a variety of potential risks for a child and then reports on those factors affecting that child. It is designed to help clinicians, asthma counselors, and parents determine potential risks for children with asthma.

The remainder of the CARAT Web site provides details on what asthma is, what causes asthma symptoms, and what can be done to reduce exposure to these asthma triggers.
