Sleepiness Scale

The Epworth Sleepiness Scale is used worldwide to measure tiredness.  We have found many tired snorers improve with SnoreOp.

How likely are you to doze off in the following situations?

Choose the most appropriate score for each situation, and add the total.

0 = would never doze
1 = slight chance
2 = moderate chance
3 = high chance of dozing

Sitting and reading 0 1 2 3
Watching TV 0 1 2 3
Sitting inactive in a public place (eg theatre or meeting) 0 1 2 3
Passenger in a car for an hour without a break 0 1 2 3
Lying down to rest in the afternoon when circumstance permit 0 1 2 3
Sitting and talking to someone 0 1 2 3
Sitting quietly after lunch without alcohol 0 1 2 3
In a car, stopped for a few minutes in traffic 0 1 2 3
