The Berlin questionnaire has 11 questions grouped in 3 categories.
1) In view of her interrupted sleep and published report, (4) sleep quality was assessed using validated questionnaires and found inadequate; Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (Global PSQI score of 13; poor sleep) and Berlin Questionnaire (2 out of 3 positive categories; high risk for obstructive sleep apreal (OSA)).
In particular, the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, the STOP (Snoring, Tiredness, Observed Apnea, and High Blood Pressure) questionnaire, the STOPBANG (STOP plus BMI, Age, Neck Circumference, and Gender) questionnaire, the Berlin Questionnaire, the Wisconsin Sleep Questionnaire, and the Multivariable Apnea Prediction (MVAP) tool have not been adequately validated in primary care settings.
Other effective screening tools that have been used in the primary care population are the Berlin Questionnaire (BQ), STOP-BANG questionnaire, [2] Sleep Apnea of Sleep Disorder Questionnaire (SA-SDQ) [6] and Apnea Risk Evaluation System (ARES).
Epworth sleepiness scale (ESS), Berlin Questionnaire (BQ), STOP-BANG Questionnaire are some of frequently used scoring systems3.
Methods: We used the Berlin questionnaire (BQ) for OSAS, the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) to determine the frequency of sleep disorders and their possible relationships with fasting blood glucose, HbA1c, and lipid levels.
A number of other screening questionnaires have since become popularised, amongst them are the Berlin questionnaire (BQ), and the "Snoring, Tiredness, Observed apnea, and high blood Pressure" (STOP) questionnaire.
Sleep patterns were assessed by the Berlin Questionnaire, Epworth Sleepiness Scale, and questions regarding napping behavior.
