What other health conditions do you have in addition to OSA? Are any of the medications sedatives that you take before sleep?

Oxygen levels should always be higher than 90 and with a drop like yours there is certainly cause for concern. Has your doc given you any reason for the O2 drops?

Technicians at sleep centers are not doctors and legally cannot give you any treatment without an order from a doctor which is why they did not add oxygen during your second study.
