Get Started with the STOP-BANG Sleep Apnea Quiz for Ballston Spa, NY

When it comes to diagnosing sleep apnea, there are a few key indicators that sleep physicians and dentists look for. One way to find out about them is by taking the STOP-BANG assessment, which is a short quiz consisting of 8 yes or no questions pertaining to your sleep habits and overall health. The name itself is based off of a few of these key indicators: Snoring, Tiredness, Observation Pressure—Body mass, Age, Neck size, and Gender. All of these factors should be easily observable, and they provide vital information for us. Dr. Fred Dreher suggests that anyone who has been suffering from sleep issues should take this quiz before contacting Integrative Sleep Center. This will allow our team to get a head start on your diagnosis and treatment so we can get you the help you need even faster. If you have any questions about this test, be sure to contact our Ballston, NY office before taking it. This could be the first step to you finally getting a full night’s rest.
