Check your daytime somnolence - Epworth sleepiness scale

Here is a subjective test most sleep specialists and some internal med physicians use to assess daytime somnolence. Anyone can take it but those with OSA should regularly evaluate themselves because they are at elevated risk.

Epworth sleepiness scale
Epworth sleepiness scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following eight 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. Sitting and reading _____
2. Watching TV _____
3. Sitting inactive in a public place (e.g a theater or a meeting) _____
4. As a passenger in a car for an hour without a break _____
5. Lying down to rest in the afternoon when circumstances permit _____
6. Sitting and talking to someone _____
7. Sitting quietly after a lunch without alcohol _____
8. In a car, while stopped for a few minutes in traffic _____


Add the total of the eight situations to gain your total score
* 0 - 9 - average score, normal population
* 10 - 24 - sleep specialist advice recommended

Basically, if you score greater then 10, you are very likely to fall asleep during the day and cause harm to yourself or others. Call your doc.

I got an 13......That would be if I didn't use my BiPap mask. I have been tested by a sleep specialist. I was diagnosed with sevre sleep apnea. When I use my mask I sleep great and am wired for the day. Oxygen is a good thing when you sleep.

Watch out or I'll vote that you're cut off from Oxygen for a while. You were ping-ie today.

You know, even when I'm very exhausted I barely break 3 on that scale.

Yeah! I don't know what crawled up your butt last night. I'm frightened of the morning. You'll be awake when you pick me up for work...
