Epworth Sleepiness Scale

Epworth Sleepiness Scale

« Back to Glossary Index

The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) is a set of questions that measures how likely you are to fall asleep in each of 8 situations. You respond with 0 (would never doze), 1 (slight chance of dozing), 2 (moderate chance of dozing), or 3 (high chance of dozing). Your responses are added to make a final score, which can range between 0 and 24 and indicates your level of sleepiness. Higher scores indicate higher levels of daytime sleepiness. Most doctors and scientists consider scores of 10 or higher to indicate abnormal sleepiness.
