Has your snoring become a nightly nuisance or are you waking up tired? Learn more about your symptoms and see if you might have Sleep Apnea by following the instructions on this page, which will guide you step-by-step through a preliminary Sleep Apnea assessment.

The Epworth Sleepiness Assessment is a tool used to evaluate daytime sleepiness levels. A total score of 10 or higher indicates that you might be experiencing excessive sleepiness. Scoring 18 or above suggests a severe sleepiness condition. Scores of 10 or more warrant a review of your sleep quality and habits or a consultation with Dr. Bragg. Write down a number for each scenario described. After finishing, sum up your scores and refer to the interpretation key at the end to understand your sleepiness levels.


  1. 0 = no chance of dozing
  2. 1 = slight chance of dozing
  3. 2 = moderate chance of dozing
  4. 3 = high chance of dozing

Interpretation of Scores

  • Reading while seated
  • Watching television
  • Sitting silently in a public place

  • Resting in the afternoon while lying down
  • Conversing with someone while seated
