Do you snore loudly? Feel tired, fatigued, or sleepy during the day? Has anyone
observed you stop breathing during sleep? Are you overweight but otherwise

If you answered yes to any of the above, you may be eligible for a study
investigating the role of the internal circadian clock in sleep apnea and heart

Eligible study volunteers will be between the age of 30 and 80 years old with a
BMI less than 40 who have no current or previous history of cancer, heart
disease, or pharmacological hypertension treatment. Eligible participants may
have a diagnosis of sleep apnea or mild hypertension. Further eligibility is
determined during a medical evaluation at no cost to you.

Researchers at OHSU aim to investigate how behaviors and the body's internal
clock affect the control of the heart and blood pressure. After 2-4 screening visits,
eligible study volunteers will maintain a set sleep schedule at home for up to 3
weeks and then spend 5 consecutive days and nights at our facility while sleep,
blood pressure, and other tests and measurements are performed.

Receive up to $1,800 for study completion as well as reasonable parking and
transportation cost coverage.
