Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS)
What it measures:
- Measures an individual's chances of having dozed off or fallen asleep during 8 different activities.
- Estimates a person's average sleep propensity throughout activities they conduct during their daily lives. Another version of the scale, ESS-CHAD, was developed for children and adolescents. Younger children may require the assistance of a parent/caregiver to complete this form.1
This summary measures an individual's chances of having dozed off or fallen asleep during different activities in daily life and contains information on the use of this assessment in patients who experience daytime sleepiness.
