Los coeficientes omega de McDonald y alfa de Cronbach fueron ambos de 0. Introduction : The Epworth Sleepiness Scale ESS has shown limited clinimetric properties compared to polysomnography, suggesting the need to review its factor structure. Objective : To review the factor structure dimensionality and internal consistency of the ESS in a group of patients who underwent polysomnography in Santa Marta, Colombia.
Materials and methods. A research was conducted to measure the clinimetric properties of the ESS. McDonald's omega and Cronbach's alpha coefficient were both 0. Conclusions : The EES had a limited one-dimensional structure in the study population, so it is necessary to review the construct of somnolence or refine its factorial structure, this way it may be possible to obtain better indicators in comparison with the best reference criteria for daytime sleepiness diagnosis.

About the ESS
Dr Johns first developed the ESS for adults in and subsequently modified it slightly in He named the questionnaire after Epworth Hospital in Melbourne, where he established the Epworth Sleep Centre in The ESS is a self-administered questionnaire with 8 questions. Respondents are asked to rate, on a 4-point scale , their usual chances of dozing off or falling asleep while engaged in eight different activities.
