The Narcolepsy Screener App is designed to provide doctors with two validated screening tools that can help screen patients for excessive daytime sleepiness and narcolepsy with cataplexy.
The screening tools are known as the Swiss Narcolepsy Scale and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale. The tools may be used together or separately. The app provides an interpretation of the screening results along with suggested follow-up (the app is not a diagnostic tool). Users can also email the results to themselves for incorporation into their patient’s records.
