Self- assessment for SNORING and obstructive sleep apnea
These four yes-or-no questions can help you determine your risk for sleep apnea:
S: Do you snore loudly?
T: Do you often feel tired, fatigued, or sleepy during the day?
O: Has anyone observed you not breathing during sleep?
P: Do you have, or have you been treated for high blood pressure?
You would have a high risk of sleep apnea if you answered “yes” to two or more of these questions.
The questionnaire has an even higher prognostic value when you answer four more questions:
B : Is your Body Mass Index more than 35 kg/m2?
A : Is your age more than 50 years old?
N : Is your neck circumference greater than 16.5” for women and 17.5” for men?
G : Is your gender male?
Three or more yes answers indicate a high-risk for OSA, and you need immediate medical attention.
Two or less yes answers indicate a low risk for OSA.
