What device was used? I know when I use my CMS 50F at night I get a lot of variance just from the sensor moving on my finger as I roll about while sleeping. Regardless, your numbers look pretty good to me, however we would need to know the duration of the desaturations below 88% to know the severity of the desaturations.

Thanks, Quies and TAT.

It was done while sleeping with the Cpap on all night about 7 1/2 hours. And the duration of the desaturations below 88% was less than 12 seconds. Thank you.

I would discuss this with your primary care doctor, as supplemental oxygen may be authorized. I do think excursions under 88% while on the CPAP signals something is wrong with your treatment.

i think i would be happy

85% is a tad low but 5/hr is borderline nothing/mild

98% awake is normal
Here are some general guidelines to understandind oximeter readings and SpO2 values.
For a regular healthy person, the normal blood oxygen saturation level (SpO2) should be around 94% to 99%. For patients with mild respiratory diseases, the SpO2 should be 90% or above. Supplementary oxygen should be used if SpO2 level falls below 90%, which is unacceptable for a prolonged period of time.
Medicare will pay for oxygen therapy and oxygen equipment if your SpO2 readings are below 88%. If your pulse oximetry or blood oxygen saturation falls under 88% consistently, consult with a doctor immediately. Many doctors want their patients to have their SpO2 above 90%.
The best place to get the answer to your questions is in your doctor's office. Your pulse oximetry normal values are dependent on your health condition, respiratory rate, percentage of oxygen in the air, activities you are performing, and other factors.

12 s below 88% - I don't that's anything too concerning.

3M micropore tape has a few more uses, one of which is to keep my oximeter locked onto the finger.   Big Grin
