Is it important to monitor SA02 while on BiPAP?

Hopefully I can persuade my Dr to cut me a script to get a Oximeter set up with my machine.

I wonder from time to time, what changes, ie, as you age the soft palet get worse and needs more pressure to keep the airway open?

As far as my Dr is concerned If I don't say anything neither will he.

I doubt you will persuade insurance to pay for a $1000 device unless you are suffering from a medical condition where you need a ventilator and need constant O2 monitoring. If I were the insurance or doctor, I'd tell you to pay $50-75 for a CONTEC CMS50F or CMS50I that records data.

No, it's normally not important to monitor SpO2.

So since you say normally it's not important, when is it important?

I guess I'd have to disagree with you. It is important to monitor saturation. Conditions change, therapy changes. If it's not important, then why check it during a sleep study?

what would be considered on OSCAR to show that I'm ok like PS to show that my saturation is fine?

If you had an oximeter that records, I have seen the SpO2 chart added to OSCAR. If not SpO2, it was another oxy stat.

What medical condition do you have that oxygen desat is serious enough of a problem that you need to monitor it? Have you monitored it while awake? If so, what's the numbers? In other words, why the obsession with oxy stats?

Here is an example of a reason to monitor and why.
I have COPD, so I do monitor mine with a non-recording CONTEC CMS50DL. I also have a heart condition called Premature Ventricular Contractions or PVC. There's 2 reasons I check mine. My numbers can be in the low 90s and sometimes lower at any given time.

Ultimately, you can track whatever stat you want. I personally think that you have a tendency to obsess over things where you don't need to. This in turn adds an extreme amount of stress. Feel free to obsess, just don't drag others into the obsession after informed opinion has been asked and given. Just my opinionated observation.

If it's an obsession..... tell that to sleep study centers who record saturations during a study. If it's recorded on a PSG then I would think I should monitor it too.

That is an apple to orange comparison BTW. You are not doing a sleep study every night. At least, I'd hope not. Following that line of thinking, you should monitor EEG nightly too, because that was done in the sleep study. And don't forget the breathing effort chest belt also.

If you're set on monitoring oxy, then go ahead and monitor it. I'm not stopping you. Look on Amazon and get a CONTEC. It's still a free country, monitor all you want. But be sure, you won't convince insurance to buy any expensive oxy monitor to connect to your PAP just because you want to monitor it.
