Sleep Test

Epworth Sleepiness Scale

You can use this self-test to see if you are getting enough sleep.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, nearly seven out of 10 Americans say they experience frequent sleep problems and 67% of American adults do not get the recommended eight hours of sleep per night.

How tired are you, and how likely are you to doze off at inappropriate times?
