New tool to assess excessive daytime sleepiness in adolescents published in JCSM
Date:10/15/2007

ep related breathing disorder.

  • The CASQ detected differences in daytime sleepiness between both normal controls and primary snorers, and between normal controls and adolescents with OSA.

  • In contrast to the CASQ, one of the two other surveys did not detect significant differences in sleepiness between adolescent controls and those with OSA, while the second survey did not detect differences between primary snorers and controls.

  • The CASQ was associated with objective measures derived from the polysomnograms, or a sleep test.

The CASQ shows promise as a valid measure of daytime sleepiness in adolescents, said Dr. Spilsbury, who added that future research should examine the association between the CASQ and additional objective measures of sleepiness and sleep duration, as well as the inclusion of participants with greater social and ethnic diversity and those with other sleep disorders or problems.

Administering the CASQ to groups of adolescents with other known sleep disorders would provide additional information about clinically significant score cut-off points. Having a brief, valid and inexpensive measure of daytime sleepiness at their disposal would enable clinicians to avoid the more costly and burdensome multiple sleep latency test. Such an instrument could also be used as a simple, inexpensive way to monitor patient responses to treatment for sleep problems or disorders, added Dr. Spilsbury.
