Welcome to the Child Asthma Risk Assessment Tool, or CARAT, an app for generating a personalized asthma risk profile for children with asthma. Asthma is a chronic disease with multiple risk factors and causes. Research has shown that the factors responsible for asthma symptoms and attacks can vary widely from person to person. The CARAT uses information provided by patients and healthcare providers to identify and prioritize the unique asthma risk factors for an individual. The tool also provides useful information about how people can reduce their asthma risks. The CARAT was originally developed to support the NIH-funded National Cooperative Inner-City Asthma Study, and has been used for over 20 years by researchers, healthcare providers, and patients.
The CARAT is completely free and can be used as often as you like.
