Researchers in Adelaide are working to help Australians who have both insomnia and sleep apnoea, Yahoo! News reports.
A team from Flinders University is recruiting for a trial that involves people with both sleep disorders.
Researcher Professor Leon Lack says people suffering both disorders are often reluctant to treat the sleep apnoea because it requires wearing a mask while asleep, which can prove noisy if their nose is blocked as well as an uncomfortable tactile sensation.
“Most insomniacs will really be very careful about their sleep and try to protect their sleep environment as much as possible,” he said.
