O2 question
#1
O2 question
Good afternoon everyone,

My at home sleep study diagnosis included mention of O2 nadir of 84%. 

Should I consider getting a Pulse Oximeter to import data into Oscar alongside my APAP?

I don’t know what’s considered bad so I thought I’d ask first. 

If so, what model do you recommend that is good with Oscar?

Thank you!

RE: O2 question
You are routinely hitting 600 mL tidal volume and over 6 L/min minute vent with a low AHI. I’m sure your SpO2 nadir looks nothing like your test before therapy. If you’re curious or concerned get a recording oximeter, but I’d bet you rarely go below 92.

Then I won’t bother with adding something else that might making sleeping uncomfortable or the added cost. 

Thanks Sleeprider!

RE: O2 question
I'd agree not to complicate things unless necessary. FWIW my waking oxy shows 90-92 fairly often on my CONTEC CMS 50DL which does not record. I took it with me the last doc visit and it showed 1 number off their oximeter briefly then it showed the same reading. If you see low 90's while awake, you might have something to think on IMO.
