I was hoping someone could explain the information provided to me from my sleep study. I had the absolutely the worst follow-up interview: the doctor was not prepared; could not explain the information; and walked out to get a copy of the study for me to look at while we spoke, but sent in his assisstant with the copy of the study and asked if I had any additional questions before I was released.
What is the SaO2 nadir value? What is a "good" SaO2 nadir value? My value was 84%. How does this relate to the oxygen saturation value? The thing that I really do not understand is how over the course of a study is how my O2 saturation level is 94% and I had a O2 level below 90% for 90 seconds, and I would an RDI of 28.
