Periods of prolonged desaturation, lowest 79%
Conclusion:moderate positional obstructive sleep apnea
with only 1 obstructive event and 3 central, why do I have obstructive sleep apnea?
I have been tested a couple of times over the years for pulmonary hypertension with no definitive diagnosis but have a low diffusion capacity(69%). I am not followed by a respirologist for this. Could this "play" in to it? I am 40 lbs overweight, female and 52 years old. If it is 100 % because of my weight, I get it but if not, should I be asking for a consult to a respirologist?
the only good thing is maybe I will be able to get some sleep! I had this done two years ago and it was perfectly normal! and my weight has not changed. Thanks for any guidance.
