Sleep Screening Tool

  • Epworth Sleepiness Scale

    Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation. Even if you have not done some of these things recently, please try to choose a rating for how they would have affected you.

    RATING SCALE:
    0 = would never fall asleep
    1 = slight chance of falling asleep
    2 = moderate chance of falling asleep
    3 = high chance of falling asleep
  • SCORING KEY:
    Each of the eight situations is scored from 0-3. The total of these figures is the final score. According to research, snorers who show no significant obstructive sleep apnea socre an average of 6.5. Those with significant OSA scored an average of 10 or greater.
  • Sleep Apnea Questionnaire

  • An answer of Yes to 2 or more of the Sleep Apnea questions should be discussed with your physician regarding the potential need for a sleep study.
