According to my Pulse Oximeter, I have mild sleep apnea. I have less than 5 events a night and each event is triggered at 90% Sp02. I have never been below 89%.
However, during these events, my pulse goes up to 120. When this happens, I awaken with what seems like a high adrelenline rush and I have a hard time going back to sleep.
I know this does not compare to folks that have severe apnea, but it is affecting my sleep, and I find myself getting sleepy on the drive home from work.
We have a very high deductable and I am not sure if I want to do a sleep study unless absolutely necessary.
See attached chart..
Any comments would be appreciated.
