Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
To test efficacy of device under development in treating combined central and obstructive sleep apnoea as compared to conventional CPAP as control. The subject will undergo one night polysomnography whilst using device and one night polysomnography with CPAP (control) in randomized order 1 week apart. The subject will be requested to wear CPAP at night for one week at home prior to each study night to acclimatize to positive airway pressure and mask.
