Objectives:
To characterize sleep of subjects with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) with insomnia compared to OSA without insomnia in terms of polysomnography (PSG) and cardiopulmonary coupling (CPC) analysis.

Conclusions:
OSA-I demonstrated more fragmented sleep architecture and disruptive sleep in spite of lower sleep-disordered breathing related distress than OSA-O.

Practical Significance:
It is important to explore factors causing fragmented sleep architecture and disruptive sleep rather than respiratory disturbances in OSA subjects complaining of insomnia.
