Welcome to your Sleep Apnea Questionnaire (Berlin)

The questionnaire consists of 3 categories related to the risk of having sleep apnea. Patients can be classified into High Risk or Low Risk based on their responses to the individual items and their overall scores in the symptom categories.

The Berlin questionnaire (BQ) reliably identifies middle-aged and older persons in the community who are at high-risk for OSA. We aimed to validate the BQ as a screening tool for OSA in IIH patients.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common condition in which there are intermittent partial (viz., hypopneas) and complete (viz., apnea) limitations in airflow, with associated hypoxia and sympathetic arousals, during sleep.[1,2] It is associated with obesity and older age, is more common in men, and, when left untreated, results in increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality
