Bears Sleep Screening
The “BEARS” instrument is divided into five major sleep domains, providing a comprehensive screen for the major sleep disorders affecting children in the 2-to 18-year old range. Each sleep domain has a set of age-appropriate “trigger questions” for use in the clinical interview.
B = bed time problems
E = excessive daytime sleepiness
A = awakenings during the night
R = regularity and duration of sleep
S = snoring
