I don't understand... Do I have sleep apnea or not? And how can I tell how severe is it? Mild or Moderate? See link or below for graphs and charts:

Your blood oxygen dipped to 80-85 18 times during the testing period. I assume you were asleep during this time? If you are up and about, the meter isn't useful as is won't read correctly. It might be worth getting a referral to a sleep clinic as the O2 is way too low... sleep apnea may or may not be the cause but you should at least rule it out.
