Screening for Asthma

  • The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are usually administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.
    Aside from routine doctor visits, there are no screening tests or screening guidelines for asthma. Diagnosis begins when asthma symptoms are present.
