My AHI was 67 sleeping on my side and 80 supine with the O2 sat dropping to 78%. My treated AHI is 1.4 now i do have a bit of AHI envy of those that got down below 1 but I must say all is good now.

My AHI was 57 but no idea of SaO2. On APAP for 72 days and always below AHI 5 but still having large leaks 10% of time.

I've only been at this for 2 weeks. I had at at home sleep study which showed 12.6 and I think O2 went down to 88%? I was also snoring so much it sent my husband running for the couch. He is now back Smile

I wasn't overly tired before but I wasn't sleeping that great. Lots of tossing/turning, waking up, using the bathroom. That seems to be better but I am fighting the mask a little so not sleeping all through the night yet.

Over 80 per hour during the overnight test, Oxy dropping, the nurse was scared I was not going to make it through the test. But it only took me one night on my machine to realize that I was no longer in a fog or drifting off to sleep at stoplights. It's not perfect, and you do need to adjust to wearing it and all the complications, but after 6 years of continual CPAP use, I average less than 1 or 2 per night now. Sleep-well
