Sleep Disorder Screening Tools
In this section of our website we've provided four of the best sleep disorder screening tools. They were developed by sleep medical experts who understand that too many Americans are needlessly suffering from undiagnosed and untreated sleeping disorders and they're looking for answers and guidance.
You can confidently use these screening tools to help you determine if you, or someone you love, needs to seek medical help for your sleeping issues.
However, we strongly advise you not to use these screening tools as substitutes for a comprehensive evaluation by a board-certified sleep physician. He or she is specifically trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of sleeping disorders, and you should seek help immediately if you are concerned about any aspect of your sleep.
Below you'll find clickable links to our screening tools, and a brief description of each. You may also access these tools by choosing them from the sub-menu under the "Screening Tools" main menu:
- Epworth Sleepiness Scale - In this online questionnaire, you'll answer questions regarding how sleepy you are during the day. This tool is often used to help diagnose disorders such as narcolepsy and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS).
- Sleep Apnea Risk Calculator - In this online survey, you'll answer several questions regarding your height, weight, and other physical characteristics as well your sleeping habits. Once submitted, you'll be provided with your numerical chances of having sleep apnea.
- Berlin Questionnaire & Body Mass Index (BMI) - This comprehensive downloadable PDF questionnaire will also help you determine your likeliness for having, or developing, sleep apnea.
- Feeling Great Sleep Centers' Sleep Apnea Screening Tool - Our patients love this "friendly" PDF sleep apnea questionnaire, which can be downloaded to your computer, printed and filled out by hand.
