Assess Your Risk for Sleep Apnea

STOP-BANG

The STOP-BANG questionnaire is one of the most widely accepted screening tools used for determining your risk for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Achieving good sleep and good health is a journey that can begin with a sleep screening tool to evaluate your risk and take control of your health.

There are a number of factors to consider in risk assessment for a sleep disorder, such as a sleep history and self-reported symptoms. But sleep apnea can only be determined and diagnosed by completing a sleep study, either in the lab or at home.

STOP-BANG is an acronym, which stands for Snoring, Tiredness, Observed apnea, blood Pressure, Body mass index, Age, Neck circumference and Gender.

Take the brief self-administered test below and see if you are at risk for sleep apnea.
