Am I a Candidate?

Please answer the 8 questions below to help us assess for possible sleep apnea, a condition in which your breathing pauses or stops for periods of time while you sleep. Sleep apnea can increase your risk for many health conditions. It can also increase your risk for breathing problems after surgery. If you answer yes to 3 or more questions, you are at risk for sleep apnea. Your physician may ask that you be evaluated by a sleep physician. This is for your own safety.

STOP-BANG Questionnaire

  1. Snoring: Do you snore loudly (louder than talking or loud enough to be heard though closed doors)?
  2. Tiredness/fatigue: Do you often feel tired, fatigued, or sleepy during the daytime, even after a “good” night’s sleep?
  3. Observed apnea: Has anyone has ever observed you stop breathing during your sleep?
  4. Pressure: Do you have or are you being treated for high blood pressure?
  5. Body mass index: Do you weigh more for your height than is shown in the tables at right?
  6. Age: Are you older than 50 years?
  7. Neck size: Does your neck measure more than 15% inches (40 cm) around?
