Over the years, physicians and sleep specialists have constructed a wide variety of surveys and quizzes that are designed to determine a patient’s likelihood of suffering from sleep apnea. Here in Lake in the Hills, IL, Dr. Tim Stirneman relies on a simple one that provides clear-cut results – the STOP-BANG assessment. STOP-BANG stand for the top eight strongest indicators of sleep apnea: Snoring, Tiredness, Observation, Pressure, Body mass, Age, Neck size, and Gender. If you suspect that you may be suffering from sleep apnea, we strongly recommend that you complete this quiz at your earliest convenience and submit it to Sleep Better Illinois. Dr. Stirneman or one of our other team members will contact you within 24 hours and inform you of the results. If you don’t hear from us within this timeframe or if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us!
