Predicting the severity of bronchial asthma in children remains a difficult due to the heterogeneity of the disease. A clinical and paraclinical examination of 70 children with a diagnosis of bronchial asthma at the age from 6 to 18 years was carried out. 142 factors were analyzed and the degree of interrelationship between them was determined. To diagnose the severity of bronchial asthma,one-factor regression modelsare used and developed a method for constructing two-factor linear models. The proposed method for constructing evaluative two-parameter models has a satisfactory accuracy, which makes it possible to use the proposed class of models to determine the relationships between the observed value and the factors under study.
