A Spanish version of the Epworth Sleepiness Scale ESS-Sp was developed by translation, back-translation, formal discussion, and a meeting of researchers with a group of patients with sleep apnea syndrome SAS. The translated questionnaire was then tested in patients, with SAS at various levels of severity and 70 without SAS. Total scores and individual item scores were related in both groups. Likewise, each item was related to total score in patients with SAS. Differences continued to be detected when multiple correlations were looked for, with differences increasing with severity. We conclude that the Spanish version of the ESS is equivalent to the original, is reproducible in patients with SAS, sensitive to post-treatment changes and seems to discriminate level of severity, showing correlation with polysomnograph variables.
