Epworth Sleepiness Test
The Epworth Sleepiness Test helps to determine if an individual might have a sleep disorder. Use the following scale for each situation:
0 = No chance of dozing
1 = Slight chance of dozing
2 = Moderate chance of dozing
3 = High chance of dozing
How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations?
|Situation||Chance of Dozing|
|Sitting and reading|
|Sitting in a public place (e.g., a theatre)|
|As a passenger in a car for an hour|
|Lying down to rest in the afternoon|
|Sitting and talking to someone|
|Sitting quietly after lunch without alcohol|
|In a car, while stopped for a few minutes in traffic|
If you score 10 or more on the Epworth Sleepiness Test, you may have a sleep disorder. Tell your Sleep Center physician about your score.
