Sleep apnea test
If you answered "yes" to six or more of the questions, there's a strong possibility that you're suffering from sleep apnea. The first four questions represent major indicators of sleep apnea. If you answered "yes" to two or more of these questions, there's a high risk that you are suffering from sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea poses significant health risks and it's important that you visit with your physician to get a definitive diagnosis and explore treatment options.
Based on your score of HIGH RISK, you appear to have significant symptoms associated with obstructive sleep apnea. Talk to your primary care doctor or one of our sleep specialists for further medical evaluation and plan of care as soon as possible.
