Help. Old CPAP user coming back, Oxygen needed?
#21
Went down to the office. They told me that SD card is not included in the machines anymore. I gave up on that one. They gave me an Oxygen concentrator. The thing is much bigger than I thought it would be. They told me portable units aren't good for overnight with a cpap.

So now that I have everything including the O2. I want to try sleeping with both CPAP alone and O2 + CPAP. See how I sleep and also measure my Oxygen levels.

I was thinking:
-CPAP alone for a few nights, then maybe add my oximeter and see what my o2 levels are over a couple of nights.
then
-CPAP + O2 and measure O2 levels over a couple of nights.

or would it be better to try CPAP +O2 together and then trying to drop the O2 if things look good.
