Oxygen level while sleeping
I just had a pulse/ox test done and the nurse call me back and said my oxygen levels dropped to 58 while I slept.
Is this bad?

I do not know why the pulse oximetry was performed to begin with, but a drop to 58 is pretty significant.  Not knowing any other information it is difficult to say any more about this.
