The Respirologist said that I de-saturated down to 87%. My AHI/RDI was 17.5 and the pressure I will need on CPAP is 7.
The doctor did not seem concerned that 87 was a low level. In the hospital, doctors usually put people on Oxygen when they are going into the low 90% area.
She said that people normally drop oxygen levels during sleep, but I am confused about why 87 is acceptable.
I figured by sleep levels dropping, she meant 98-99 down to 94 or so, not into the high 80s.
