Calgary Sleep Apnea Quality of Life Index (SAQLI)
A 35-item, interview-administered scale, the SAQLI evaluates four domains of quality of life associated with sleep apnea: daily functioning, social interactions, emotional functioning, and symptoms. A fifth domain – treatment-related symptoms – was developed for use with individuals currently undergoing therapeutic intervention. With its excellent responsiveness to change, the scale is ideal for monitoring the effectiveness of different apnea treatments.
