Self- assessment for SNORING and obstructive sleep apnea

Self- assessment for SNORING and obstructive sleep apnea

October 23, 2020

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.
