SLEEP APNEA QUIZ
Stop Bang Patient Questionnaire
Please answer the questions below to help us see if you might have sleep apnea. This is when your breathing pauses sometimes while you are sleeping. Sleep apnea adds risk with pain medicines. It can increase your risk for breathing problems after surgery. Your answers will tell us if we need to take special steps for your safety while in the hospital. In general, scores of less than three yes answers indicate low-risk for sleep apnea. Your provider will discuss your individual score with you and may ask you to see a sleep physician before any surgery.
