Epworth Sleepiness Scale

Developed by researchers in Australia, the Epworth Sleepiness Scale is used by sleep medicine specialists at Jefferson to measure the extent of daytime sleepiness. The questionnaire measures how likely you are to fall asleep in certain situations.

Rated a Top Hospital for Sleep Disorders by Philadelphia magazine, the Jefferson Sleep Disorders Center was the first such program in the Philadelphia area and is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
