SPO2 Diagnostic Criteria

RE: SPO2 Diagnostic Criteria
(07-10-2022, 10:59 PM)YouTakeMyBreathAway Wrote: My SPO2 drops >4% throughout the entire night. While my AHI is <5 most nights, SPO2 drops are consistently more frequent than that.

Is there any diagnostic criteria that would make me qualify for ASV? My current machine is not marking the hypopneas, but clearly I am breathing too shallow to keep my oxygen in the 90+ range, given the frequent dips.

The 4%+ desats was both confirmed on multiple nights  with the lab’s oxygen meter and my Wellue O2 Ring.

What device are you using to measure your SPO2?

What stored files are you referring to?  What were you using prior to O2 Insight Pro?  The Wellue/Viatom will store up to 3 sessions before overwriting the oldest.

RE: SPO2 Diagnostic Criteria
I am a bit clueless, any suggestions on what to try? It does not look like I have any flow limitations that coincide with my oxygen drops.

No, I live at sea level.

The binary export files. I had been using them in OSCAR.
