My pullmonolgist gave me a pulse ox on my CPAP to test it and it is mostly at 92 to 90 and below into the 80’s while I’m sleeping. This is at 6cm to 15cm of H20.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I should be way higher no? I was doing better before I was the APAP. My air says I have lower than one AHI. But my O2 sats disagree.
I think I downloaded it on my PC, but I don’t understand what I am looking at at all. Could bad settings be messing up my red blood count? My hematologist thinks so. I have been tested for everything under the sun. I have no blood problems.
I started CPAP or APAP three mo tha ago for mild sleep apnea. I definitely get better at first and the myAir app says I’m doing great, yet I still feel tired all day. I still take three hour naps. The worst part is, my RBC count is way up since I started, as is my Hematocrit and my Hemoglobin. I never had an in lab study. I’m scared because I have already had a PE. I can’t even get my sleep doctor to call me back. I am seeing him next week, but does anybody have any idea what is going on with me? I also fill up with air so badly. My machine is set to 6 to 15cm H2O. HELP! I already have a fib too.
