Sleep is an essential biological function and insufficient sleep or the presence of a sleep disorder can negatively impact health. Men are more commonly diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea OSA whereas women are more commonly diagnosed with insomnia. Comorbid insomnia and OSA COMISA negatively impacts health with increased rates of heart disease and mood disorders. There have been few studies that assess the different baseline characteristics of men vs women diagnosed with COMISA. The purpose of this study was to assess whether military women with insomnia, OSA, or COMISA have different military service-associated factors or biologic characteristics than military men with the same sleep disorder.
