Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes your body to stop breathing while you sleep. Air stops flowing to your lungs for 10 seconds or longer which can happen repeatedly during the night. Common symptoms of OSA include excessive daytime sleepiness and snoring.
A sleep test can provide a more detailed and reliable information to diagnose sleep disorders.
The Obstructive Sleep Apnea questionnaire is based primarily on user-indicated symptoms (hold breath while sleeping, pain) and demographic information including gender, age and BMI. The sleep apnea risk is based on logic derived from an internal ResMed Australia study of 1039 unique participants who completed an online questionnaire and a home sleep test (using a NightOwl, EctoSense device) between 2019 to 2021. A risk of OSA indicates a likelihood of having an Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI) of 5 or above which is considered as Mild, Moderate (AHI 15 to 30) or Severe (AHI greater than 30) OSA as per guidelines provided by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Note: this questionnaire has been translated from English (Australia) and the same levels of overall accuracy may not apply.
Conditions related to sleep health, such as snoring, partner snoring, acid reflux, fragmented sleep, or restless legs, are determined based on user-reported responses to questions about snoring, bed partner snoring, heartburn/acid reflux, light/poor sleep, and the need to move legs while sleeping in order to feel more comfortable.
