Description

The Pediatric Asthma Risk Score (PARS) is the first continuous scoring system for predicting asthma risk in young children.

PARS is superior to the existing Asthma Predictive Index (API) with an 11% increase in sensitivity.

By answering just 6 simple questions about eczema, wheezing, race, sensitization status and parental asthma history, families and clinicians are able to determine a child’s personal risk of developing asthma.
