Oxygen drops despite steady Minute Vent
Oxygen drops despite steady Minute Vent
Throughout the night, I have many 4%+ oxygen drops. At the same time my Minute Vent number stays at the same level (5.0-6.0) pretty consistently.

What could be the reason for my oxygen to drop during some periods but not others despite my ventilation staying consistent?
