Asthma treatment generally aims to control asthma recurrence so that patients can lead an everyday life with few or no symptoms. In addition, low levels of asthma control are associated with a decreased meaning of quality of life. Therefore, this research aims to determine the study of asthma therapy in terms of the rationality of drug use and to determine the relationship between the control level of asthma and the quality of life of asthma patients at Rumah Sakit Khusus Paru ‘Respira’ Yogyakarta (RSKP Respira Yogyakarta), a lung hospital in Yogyakarta. This observational analytic research used a cross-sectional approach with 30 patients as the respondents. Patient data were collected from November 2019 to February 2020 using Asthma Control Test (ACT) questionnaire to measure the level of asthma control and Mini Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (MINI AQLQ) to measure asthma patients’ quality of life. Analysis of the relationship between the patients’ control level of asthma and the patients’ quality of life used the Chi-Square test. The results showed the rational use of medicine in asthma outpatients at RSKP Respira Yogyakarta was that 30 patients (100%) had the right indication, 27 patients (90%) received the right drug, 28 patients (93,33%) were the right patients, 30 patients (100%) had the right dose, and no side effects were found (100%). Overall, there were 83.33% of patients who met the requirements for the rationality of drug use. A p-value of <0.05 on the Chi-Square test indicated that there was a relationship between the level of asthma control and the quality of life of asthma outpatients at RSKP Respira Yogyakarta.
