Stress-induced insomnia study
INSOMNIA TRIAL WITH CENTAL POLYSOMNOGRAPHY
Participants: 212 (stress-induced insomnia)
Average accrual rate: 20+ per month
Highlights: Central polysomnography reading and assessment as a “bottle neck” and successful patients management
Stress-induced insomnia study involving over 200 maladjusted patients. This study included polysomnography at a specialised research centre using a central reading and evaluation procedure. Since this is a lengthy procedure, the main challenge was to coordinate the enrolment of subjects in all participating centres, taking into account the availability of the polysomnography facility, as well as to standardise the assessment of a rather subjective phenomenon of sleep.
