[Diagnosis] Help me read my CPAP Study Result
#1
Question 
Help me read my CPAP Study Result
I just finished my 5 day CPAP titration study and looked at results in OSCAR while I am waiting to hear back from my doctor (~2 weeks wait time).

On my first night, there were two extended periods of many successive "Clear Airway" events (57 total), which correlated w/ significant drops in SPO2. I zoomed in on the first cluster in the attached screenshot: 

   

My second night had similar such CA events (32 total), but they were more spread out:

   

On nights 3-5, there were only 4-9 CA events/night and no oxygen drops below 88%:

   

The large amount of CA during the first two nights seemed a bit worrisome, curious about people's thoughts?

Anything else noteworthy overall? Does this look like CPAP will be a good treatment for me?
