Surprising results after surgery

Surprising results after surgery
I was put under yesterday for about 1.5 hours for a hernia surgery. At night I had to sleep on my back loaded up with oxycodone. I was expecting my RDI to be sky high but it was only 2.11!

RE: Surprising results after surgery
Oxycodone reduces REM and slow-wave sleep. Breathing events typically take place during these two stages of sleep. So you had less events because the quality of your sleep architecture was lower.
