sleep apnea complications

Can sleep apnea (oxygen level 58) over an extended period of time (at least 8 months) cause you to have a loss of brain cells? I understand brain cells do not regenerate. Is that correct?

Yes.

Recent studies show that brain cells can regenerate, but not with continuously low levels of oxygen.
