Do Other People With Pulmonary Hypertension Experience Feelings Of Isolation Especially During The Holidays?

I've been blessed with some improvements in my health but still find myself fatigued quite often especially at times when I want to be more active. I know the COPD and accompanying PH won't go away. I know they will probably get worse. I'm slower than I was, more SOB than I was, but I'm still trying to function without slowing my family and friends down. It is at those times when I feel "left behing" and… read more

I Had An Overnight Sleep Study Done On Oxygen.

I Had An Overnight Sleep Study Done On Oxygen.

The doctor's office called to say I was desaturating to 78% for 9.5 minutes. I have to go in for another sleep study to see why I desaturate while on oxygen. Is there a C-PAP with an alarm system to wake you if your oxygen level goes too low? How dangerous is it for this level? Does anyone have any answers?

A myPHteam Member said:

Yes, they did. I went last night for my sleep study. It seems that when I enter REM sleep my mouth drops and immediately my oxygen drops to the 70's. I… read more
