Calculating Body Mass Index (BMI)
Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women. You can estimate your BMI online using the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s website at www.nhlbi.nih.gov.

Scoring the STOPBang Questionnaire

If your score is 0-2, your risk of having obstructive sleep apnea is low.
If your score is 3 or 4, you have an intermediate risk of having obstructive sleep apnea.
If your score is 5-8, your risk of having obstructive sleep apnea is high.
