desaturation index
I recently had a sleep study done. So far, what I know is that it showed I do not have OSA. It did say that I had desaturations "mild in magnitude" and the desaturation index was 17.1/hr. Is this normal?

An oxygen desaturation index of 17.1 is usually considered abnormal, especially in a young person.  You should discuss this with the Sleep Physician Specialist who provided the sleep study interpretation.

Good luck
