How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations, in contrast to just feeling tired?
This refers to your usual way of life in recent times.
Even if you have not done some of these things recently, try to work out how they would have affected you.
Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation:
0 = would never
1 = slight chance
2 = moderate chance
3 = high chance
It is important that you answer each question as best you can.
What is the likelihood of you falling asleep while sitting and reading?
What is the chance you might doze off while watching television?
Sitting, inactive in a public place (e.g. a theatre or a meeting)
As a passenger in a car for an hour without a break.
Lying down to rest in the afternoon when circumstances permit.
Sitting and talking to someone.
Sitting quietly after a lunch without alcohol.
In a car, while stopped for a few minutes in the traffic.
