  • Insomnia with sleep apnea: a new syndrome. Science Guilleminault, C., Eldridge, F. L., Dement, W. C. 1973; 181 (4102): 856-858


    A new clinical syndrome, sleep apnea associated with insomnia, has been characterized. Repeated episodes of apnea occur during sleep. Onset of respiration is associated with general arousal and often complete awakening, with a resultant loss of sleep. An important clinical implication is that patients complaining only of insomnia may be suffering from this syndrome.
