For the purposes of this policy, poor asthma control is characterized by at least one of the following: 1. Use of a short-acting inhaled beta2-agonist (“rescue” inhaler) more 2. Variation of peak expiratory flow rate of more than 30% over the 3. Peak expiratory flow rate less than 80% of highest recorded for the 4.
