Step 1: Sleep Apnoea Quiz
Wake up to the signs: There are a number of signs and symptoms of sleep apnoea, including snoring, morning headaches, daytime sleepiness, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and depression. These are often comorbidities of obstructive sleep apnoea, working to compound the severity of the condition.
Pharmacy Sleep Services use two simple screening quizzes – Stop BANG Questionnaire and Epworth Sleepiness Scale – to assess the likelihood of obstructive sleep apnoea. These simple quizzes are accredited screening methods for detecting obstructive sleep apnoea and determine whether you should do a home sleep test.
