STOP-BANG Sleep Apnea Quiz
There are many quizzes and questionnaires online that can help identify if you are at risk for sleep apnea. For years, Dr. David Schwartz has used one of the simplest and most straightforward ones that is also widely accepted by sleep dentists and physicians alike: the STOP-BANG Assessment. It’s an important part of pre-screening our patients at Sleep Better Chicagoland. The acronym stands for some of the key indicators that a person might have sleep apnea: Snoring, Tiredness, Observation Pressure—Body Mass, Age, Neck Size, and Gender.
This short quiz provides us vital information so we can start helping you even before you come to see us. If you have been suffering from consistent sleep issues, we invite you to answer the 8 yes or no questions. Dr. Schwartz or one of our team will go over your answers and contact you within 24 hours. If you don’t hear from us in that timeframe, have questions, or want to schedule an appointment, be sure to contact our Skokie, IL team.
