Take this test to measure your level of daytime sleepiness:
The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (below) was developed by researchers in Australia and is widely used by sleep professionals around the world to measure sleep deprivation.


How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations:
0 = no chance of dozing
1 = slight chance of dozing
2 = moderate chance of dozing
3 = high chance of dozing


Situation/Chance of Dozing:
_____ Sitting and reading
_____ Watching TV
_____ Sitting inactive in a public place (such as a theater or a meeting)
_____ As a passenger in a car for an hour without a break
_____ Sitting and talking to someone
_____ Sitting quietly after a lunch without alcohol
_____ In a car, while stopped for a few minutes in traffic
_____ Total Epworth Score


Share your score with your physician to determine the benefits of having a sleep study.
