Test-retest reliability of SOREMs in patients with narcolepsy was found to be high [11]. Maintenance of Wakefulness Test The usefulness of the MSLT as an objective test to quantify improvement in sleepiness after therapeutic interventions turned out to be disappointing, particularly in narcolepsy [13]. MSLT results usually did not relate clearly to subjectively experienced improvements in sleepiness, for which a “floor effect” was hypothesized: in very sleepy patients improvements were not detected because the test lacked sensitivity to tell severe and moderate sleepiness apart.

It comprises 18 self-rating questions and 5 questions to be filled in by the partner, if present. The 18 questions are divided into seven components which yield a component score between 0 and 3, which are then added for a global score. The components probe subjective sleep quality, sleep latency, sleep duration, sleep efficiency, several symptoms of specific sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, consumption of hypnotics, and daytime sleepiness. An empirical cut-off score of 5 allows discrimination of “bad” from “good” sleepers.
