Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Epworth Sleepiness Scale
This is the standard series of questions that are widely used to see how your sleep affects your daily life.
How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations, in contrast to feeling just tired? This refers to your usual way of life in recent times. Even if you have not done some of these things recently try to work out how they would have affected you. Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation:
|0 = no chance of dozing|
|1 = slight chance of dozing|
|2 = moderate chance of dozing|
|3 = high chance of dozing|
|1 - 6||Congratulations, you are within * normal limits|
|7 - 8||You are on the borderline of having significant sleepiness|
|9 and up||Seek the advice of a sleep specialist without delay|
* NOTE: This survey/test and its results are not medical advice, and should not be used as a substitute for seeking a medical opinion from a physician.
* Normal: Insomniacs may still fall in the normal range on the sleepiness scale despite significant problems sleeping at night.
