Sleep Timing Questionnaire (STQ)
- 422 Downloads
The STQ was created in order to obtain an accurate sketch of an individual’s typical sleep schedule, allowing sleep technicians to tailor the timing of polysomnographic studies to the patient’s specific needs and habits. The questionnaire is meant to function as an alternative to the more time-consuming sleep diary format. Consisting of 18 items, the STQ queries a variety of issues, including preferences for bed and waking times, frequency and length of night awakenings, and stability of sleep schedules.
