I am a Neurologist as well as an Internist
and I am in agreement with you
O2 sat levels are just one indicator of sleep disordered breathing
apnea periods are very important and so is sleep fragmentation levels
you can have a hypopnea index as being very high, without relevant changes in O2 sat, and still have a problem
so it would depend on your polysomnogram record
you also can have a low hypopnea index with marked O2 sat levels
so I would ask you how you feel?
and if you feel better with the CPAP as it is, that is probably sufficient
as you are offline, please get back to me with questions, or rate my service if satisfied. Dr Frank t
Good most of the time..this makes me very anxious thinking I may be 02 for the rest of my life. I guess traveling with it is the hardest part for me to accept with only one little measly test. Do you think I should retake this test?
I did not have confindence in an overly confidant nurse practioner either!
Getting old is for the birds.
I can talk about the polysomnogram record if you will ever get back on line!
Where are you?
