"Maybe it would be better put this way:   An overnight oximetry "could" strongly indicate the need for an overnight sleep study for obstructive sleep apnea.   An overnight oximetry should never be used to rule out an obstructive…"

Judy replied to John Hedley's discussion Pulse Oximetry
"The difference is in the interpretation of a desaturation by the oximeter and the interpretation of an apnea by the PAP device. You can have an apnea that does NOT meet the oximeter's definition of a desaturation. Thus an oximeter reading is…"

Judy replied to John Hedley's discussion Pulse Oximetry
"And, if you are interested, medicine is now beginning to recognize the importance of pulse pressure as well as the systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Pulse pressure is the difference between systolic and diastolic pressures, i.e. S - D = PP. If…"

Judy Y replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"Thanks for your answer Kath. The app I have is Philips Dreamapper . It tells me minimum/maximam/ 90% pressure, My AHI and mask fit, Hours usage. I cant see anything about obstructive or centrals. Is my app out of date, or my machine?"

Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"I don't think those symptoms are specific to central sleep apnoea.  Your app should tell you if those apnoeas are obstructive or  centrals.  It sometimes says 'CA.'  Sometimes when people first wake it takes a…"
