Sleep apnea is a significant health problem and when left untreated affects many serious chronic conditions including drug-resistant hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes. Treating sleep apnea has been shown to improve patients’ quality of life and may help improve glucose control, lower blood pressure, and improve heart health.

We have devised this simple questionnaire to assess your lifestyle, size and BMI coupled with your Epworth Sleepiness scale result to help us indicate whether you may be suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Please note that this is not a diagnosis and should not be regarded as such. If you are suffering from excessive tiredness, fall asleep regularly during the day and stop breathing during sleep, you should book an appointment with your GP.
