Sleep Apnea Self Help Test
 

The Sleep Apnea Screening Evaluation is an important tool designed to both quickly and easily determine if a sleep disorder could possibly be present or be a factor in your overall health and well being. Sleep Apnea is a dangerous medical condition that causes a person to momentarily wake up, throughout the night, from breathing disturbances. (You stop breathing which lowers the oxygen level in the blood). Sleep Apnea disturbs your sleep leaving you tired and fatigued during the day. Sleep Apnea contributes to many medical conditions, making them more difficult for you and your doctor to manage. Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), Diabetes, Heart Failure, and Stroke are more common in people who suffer from Sleep Apnea as are motor vehicle and work related accidents. Taking this test and the results provided in no way substitutes for a medical assessment or diagnostic procedure, but serves as a useful guide to help focus future consultations.


 Begin the evaluation by answering the first question below:

Are you the snorer or is it your bed partner who snores?
