Sleep Evaluation

Whether a person may have a sleeping disorder or just has problems sleeping, it is never a bad idea to take some time to evaluate your sleep. There are a number of methods that can be used for sleep evaluation, and more are being developed over time. The methods listed below can be very useful for helping patients determine whether they are getting the kind of sleep that they really need and identify potential sleep problems that they may need help with.

Epworth Sleepiness Scale

The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) is a useful questionnaire intended to measure daytime sleepiness and how sleep can affect your daily life. ESS was introduced in 1991 by Dr. Murray Johns of Epworth Hospital in Melbourne, Australia and is widely used for helping to diagnose sleeping disorders.

NAMCP Sleep Patient Health Record

The NAMCP Patient Health Record has been designed to help patients keep track of information regarding potential sleep problems. The Health Record will record various data, such as how difficult it is for the patient to fall and stay sleep, how many hours of sleep the patient received, and how refreshed the patient felt upon waking up. The complete health record consists of two pages, where one page will need to be filled out at night and the other will be filled out in the morning.
