85% sat isn't good. There are many factors that can affect an O2 sat. I recommend that she see a pulmonologist and request a sleep study & pulmonary function testing. If she is having an acute exacerbation call 911.

Are you saying that her oxygen level falls when she is asleep? What are the daytime readings?
