Epworth Sleepiness Scale

This is a simple tool used to determine daytime sleepiness. Take a minute and rate the following questions:

0= Would never dose or sleep
1= Slight chance of dosing or sleeping
2= Moderate chance of dosing or sleeping
3= High chance of dosing or sleeping

1. Sitting or reading
2. Watching TV
3. Sitting inactive in a public place
4. Being a passenger in a motor vehicle for an hour or more
5. Lying down in the afternoon
6. Sitting and talking to someone
7. Sitting quietly after lunch
8. Stopped for a few minutes in traffic while driving

A score of 10 or more is considered sleepy. A score of 18 or more is very sleepy. For a score of 10 or higher you should take a look at your sleep habits (consuming caffeine or eating a heavy meal before four hours before bedtime). For scores of 18 or higher we recommend speaking with your physician about testing and treatment options.
