Excessive daytime sleepiness and on-road driving performance in patients with Parkinson's disease.
J Neurol Sci. 2007 Jan 15; 252(1):13-5.JN

Abstract

The impact of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) on road test performance was examined in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Twenty-one patients with PD completed the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) and an on-road driving test. Five participants had EDS according to their self-report on the ESS. Neither EDS nor PD medications were associated with on-road driving performance. These findings suggest that in this pilot study EDS did not impair PD patients' driving skills on a formal driving evaluation.
