STOP-BANG Questionnaire

The STOP-BANG questionnaire was originally developed as a presurgical screening tool to help identify patients at an elevated risk of sleep apnea. However, it’s a very useful screening tool for anyone because it’s easy, quick, and comprehensive. If you want to learn whether you’re likely to have sleep apnea, the 8-question STOP-BANG questionnaire can help, and the acronym makes it so easy to remember that you can easily use it to screen friends and family you might be worried about.
