COMISA sleep study

Volunteers are needed for a new trial, investigating treatment options for 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 should be aged 18-75, and have symptoms of OSA (e.g. snoring, daytime tiredness) and insomnia.

Participants are required to be in the trial for six month and will receive CPAP free of charge, with some also receiving four sessions of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for their insomnia.
