What is the CAUSE of the low oxygen levels whilst sleeping? That is THE real question. Because that answer determines the treatment.

If the cause is UARS (upper respiratory resistance syndrome) or OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) the GOLD STANDARD treatment is CPAP therapy.

If it is an underlying pulmonary condition such as COPD, emphysema, etc. then 02 supplementation might be the correct treatment.

HOW do you know you are experiencing low oxygen levels whilst sleeping? Have you had an at-home overnight oximetry? At-home sleep study? In-lab sleep study?
