SLEEP SELF ASSESSMENT

How much sleep should I get? Which mattress is best? What’s the best pillow? Should I buy my own bedding or just use what I’ve got? SleepSelfAssessment is a quick test to find out how well rested you really are. Learn about the tips and tricks to help you get the restful sleep you need and still look good doing it!

Sleep assessment

The first step in dealing with a sleep problem is an accurate assessment of its nature, severity and causes. Only then can a diagnosis be made and appropriate treatment implemented. To help this process, two assessment tools have been included

in this factsheet.
1. Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS)

2. Assessment Flow Chart and Symptoms / Management Table

 

  Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) (To be used for patients not on sleep medication to determine impact on daytime functioning. To be completed with a health professional).

The ESS is a questionnaire that subjectively measures the patient’s daytime sleepiness.
Score indicator:

0-4 more alert than normal, common with insomnia

5-9 normal range of sleepiness

10 excessive daytime sleepiness, possible   underlying medical condition.

The patient needs to consider the   following  when answering the ESS   questions.

How likely are you to doze off in the   following situations,
rather than just feeling tired or fatigued?

If you have not done these things recently,   think about how they have affected you in the past
