Scoring: Answering “yes” to three or more of the 8 questions indicates that you are at high risk for OSA. Answering “yes” to less than three questions indicates that you are at low risk for OSA. If you scored in the high risk for OSA category, a sleep study or an evaluation by a sleep specialist may be warranted.
