The Sleep Apnea Evaluation Quiz is an important tool designed to both quickly and easily determine if a sleep disorder could possibly be present or be a factor in your overall health and well being.
Sleep apnea is an extremely serious condition that causes a person to wake up constantly throughout the night from respiratory disturbances like sleep apnea (when you stop breathing). Sleep apnea will cause medical conditions to occur, and existing medical conditions to worsen or make more difficult for you and your doctor to manage. Hypertension (high blood pressure, eventually renal failure), diabetes, heart failure, and stroke are very common in people who suffer from sleep apnea.
Taking this quiz and the results provided in no way substitutes for a medical assessment or diagnostic procedure, but serves as a useful guide to help focus future consultations.
Begin the evaluation by answering the first question below:
0 = would never dose
1 = slight chance of dozing 2 = moderate chance of dozing
3 = high chance of dozing
Chance of dozing
Sitting and reading
Sitting, inactive in a public place (theatre, meeting)
As a passenger in a car for an hour without a break
Lying down to rest in the afternoon when time permits
Sitting and talking to someone
