I was advised by someone on here that the results of my sleep study show that my spo2 levels were too low and that I may benefit from oxygen along with cpap.
I would be grateful if someone who understands the sleep study report can help me understand the results.

My sleep study results are below:


Many thanks

Until your Apnea and hypopnea are corrected I don' think you will be able to tell if oxygen is needed. Mine went down to 82% during my sleep study, is 93% to 95% while being treated with CPAP.

Hi dizzy1,
The sleep study is from 2014. A lot can change with your oxygen level in 3 years.
If you are concerned about oxygen levels you might consider buying an oximeter off Amazon or ebay. The Contec cms50f or cms50i are often recommended. They are fairly  cheap and can record your oxygen level for the entire night.

Not that different an O2 desaturation to me, you spent half hour under 85% and didn't spend much time really low. I doubt you will need oxygen. You have a cpap now and that should have fixed it. Did they sleep test, titrate you?
I got a cms50f off ebay from china for $50. it was worth it to me. get the usb and software, I saw that someone with V3.9 is having trouble with sleepyhead, so get the V3.5 or V3.7 OS
