The sleep apnea screener features the STOP BANG questionnaire to help you gauge your risk for sleep apnea. Please write down your answer to each question. Talk to your doctor about the results.
STOP BANG (Answer yes or no for each question)
Do you snore?
Do you feel fatigued during the day?
Do you wake up feeling like you haven’t slept?
Have you been told you stop breathing at night?
Do you gasp for air or choke while sleeping?
Do you have high blood pressure or are on BP medication?
SCORE: If you checked YES to TWO or more questions on the STOP portion you are at risk for OSA
Is your body mass greater than 28?
Are you 50 years old or older?
Are you a male with neck circumference greater than 17 inches
or a female with neck circumference greater than 16 inches?
Are you a male?
SCORE: The more questions you checked YES to on the BANG portion, the greater your risk of having moderate to severe OSA and you should speak with your doctor about a Sleep Study
