Epworth Sleepiness Test

If you suspect you may have Sleep Apnoea, you can fill in the online Pictorial Epworth Sleepiness Scale directly on the British Lung Foundation's website and an immediate calculation will be made with results shown, suggesting if you need to take further action.  The Epworth Test is usually one of the first steps your GP or other medic will ask you to complete before being referred for a full Sleep Study.
 
 
You can also take a simple overnight Home Screening Sleep Test to check if you do have Sleep Apnoea.  These are particularly helpful for persuading your GP to send you to for a full sleep study at your nearest sleep clinic, or perhaps for convincing yourself that you need to take action!

IF YOUR EPWORTH SCORE SHOWS THAT YOU COULD POSSIBLY BE AN UNDIAGNOSED SUFFERER OF SLEEP APNOEA, PLEASE, FOR YOUR SAKE AND YOUR FAMILY'S, DO NOT IGNORE YOUR SYMPTOMS, AND SEEK MEDICAL HELP NOW!!

The Sleep Disorders Centre at Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, as part of King`s Health Partners in collaboration with the British Lung Foundation (BLF), have been working on an important project to screen for excessive daytime sleepiness online, a symptom that is frequently associated with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.  Since 2011 more than 28,000 subjects have been screened using an online version of the  Epworth Sleepiness Scale - a questionnaire validated for Sleep Apnoea.
The collaboration is designed to reach out nationwide to raise awareness of Sleep Apnoea and is constructed along the awareness campaign of the BLF for Sleep Apnoea. Since the beginning of 2012 age and gender information is collected to map out the symptom and understand the problems it causes on a public health scale.
First results of this project are accepted for presentation at the Winter Conference of the British Thoracic Society in early December in London.
