I am not impressed with the Epworth Sleepiness Scale. When I fill it out much of the time I am undecided between two choices. Depending on my relative optimism or pessimism I could score a 6 or an 11 equally well.

As I said, "They often use..." My doc gives it to me every visit; and I lie like a rug on it.

Look for pulse rate spikes concurrent with O2 dips and those are apneas.

Going down to 80% is not to good.
