About The STOP BANG & Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS)
The two questionnaires on this page are widely accepted screening tools in the practice of sleep medicine. Together they provide a starting point for diagnosis and treatment. According to the National Institute of Health review of a 2012 study, the STOP-Bang “correctly identifie[s] more patients with OSA and SDB than the ESS alone.**1**
In light of this study and his clinical experience, Dr. Sall uses both questionnaires together for a more complete introductory screening.
In addition to assessing your risk profile, the screening indicates how the quality of your sleep is impacting your life.
