  • Epsworth Sleepiness Scale

  • The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) was developed and validated by Dr. Murray Johns of Melbourne, Australia. It is asimple, self-administered questionnaire that is widely used by sleep professionals in quantifying the level of daytimesleepiness.

    How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations, in contrast to feeling ‘just tired’? This refers to yourusual way of life at present and in the recent past. Even if you have not done some of these things recently, try to workout how they would have affected you.

    Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation:

    0 = would never doze

    1 = slight chance of dozing

    2 = moderate chance of dozing

    3 = high chance of dozing
