Volunteers needed for sleep study
Volunteers needed for a new trial investigating treatment of people with both insomnia and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).
The COMISA trial is a research study of a non-drug (behavioural) treatment designed to help people with the two overlapping sleep disorders and will test if insomnia therapy will improve Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) adherence leading to better sleep quality.
Participants are required to be in the trial for six months and will receive CPAP free of charge, with some also receiving four sessions of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for their insomnia.
Participants should be aged 18-75, have symptoms of OSA (e.g. snoring, day time tiredness) and insomnia.

This research has been approved by the Southern Adelaide Clinical Human Research Ethics Committee.
