An error occurred in this article by Chipps B et al, titled “Longitudinal Validation of the Test for Respiratory and Asthma Control in Kids in Pediatric Practices” published in the March 2011 issue of Pediatrics (2011;127: e737–e747; originally published online February 21, 2011; doi: 10.1542/peds.2010-1465) on page e738, Fig 1, Questions 3 and 5. This figure shows the Test for Respiratory and Asthma Control in Kids (TRACK) tool. Question 3 states, “During the past 4 weeks, to what extent did your child's breathing problems, such as wheezing, coughing, or shortness of breath, interfere with his or her ability to play, go to school, or engage in usual activities that a child should be doing at his or her age.” The correct answer choices are “Not at all,” “Slightly,” “Moderately,” “Quite a lot,” and “Extremely.” Question 5 states, “During the past 12 months, how often did your child need to take oral corticosteroids (prednisone, prednisolone, Orapred®, Prelone®, or Decadron®) for breathing problems not controlled by other medications?” The correct answer choices are “Never,” “Once,” “Twice,” “3 times,” and “4 or more times.” The corrected Fig 1 follows.
