Epworth Sleepiness Scale

Epworth Sleepiness Scale – a self-administered questionnaire

The ESS was introduced at the Epworth Hospital in Melbourne in 1990 by Dr Murray Johns. It is a self-administered questionnaire (usually less than 4 minutes to complete) that is aimed at measuring daytime sleepiness.

It focuses on measuring the Average Sleep Propensity (ASP) in selected types of day-to-day activities. ASP has three stages of different severity: mild, moderate, and severe, that are used to quantify the propensity of falling asleep.
