Sitting and reading
Watching TV
Sitting inactive in a public place (e.g., a theater or meeting)

When lying down to rest in the afternoon, when circumstances permit
While sitting and talking to someone
While sitting quietly after lunch without alcohol

How to interpret your score

A score of 10 or more points may indicate excessive or inappropriate sleepiness. This can be a symptom of serious sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and narcolepsy. If you have a high score, or you are worried about your sleepiness, please make an appointment.

You may also want to have your spouse or partner fill out the form for you, as a double-check. In some cases, a person may not realize they are nodding off or dozing but this is noticed by the spouse or partner.
If the Compute Score button does not work in your browser: Each "Never" answer is worth 0 points, "Slight" is 1 point, "Moderate" is 2 points and "High" is 3 points. Simply add up your total points to find your score.
