We do not associate insomnia with obstructive sleep apnea, but a recent study by Dr. Barry Krakow (Mayo Clinic Proceedings) showed the role of OSA in causing and perpetuating insomnia.

Krakow investigated 1,210 insomnia patients who were unable to fall asleep or stay asleep using sleep aids. Subsequently, 942 patients underwent overnight sleep studies, and 91 percent of those who completed a sleep study actually suffered from previously undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, a critical factor aggravating their insomnia.

If you suffer from insomnia, please talk to us or your doctor about a simple home sleep test to diagnose and treat obstructive sleep apnea.
