Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep. Each episode, called an apnea (Greek: ἄπνοια (pnoia), from α- (a-), privative, πνέειν (pnein), to breathe), lasts long enough so that one or more breaths are missed, and such episodes occur repeatedly throughout sleep. The standard definition of any apneic event includes a minimum 10 second interval between breaths, with either a neurological arousal (a 3-second or greater shift in EEG frequency, measured at C3, C4, O1, or O2), a blood oxygen desaturation of 3-4% or greater, or both arousal and desaturation. Sleep apnea is diagnosed with an overnight sleep test called a polysomnogram, or a "Sleep Study" which is often conducted by a pulmnologist.

Bevie, I am so glad you posted that. I have had that test but thankfully I don't have it. I know so many ppl who have it and I have heard that if you don't wear the mask when you are sleeping you could loose oxygen.

It is odd. During the days I am short of oxygen but when I sleep it doesn't bother me. When I have gone to physical therapists or gyms or the last time I went to the ER they would ask me if I could breath. I think mine is just from obesity tho.

I am so sorry you have this disease. I hear that mask is very uncomfortable. I wish there were some other way for you.

Yes I Have a machine its Called a Cpap

A continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine is used mainly by patients for the treatment of sleep apnea at home. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the upper airway becomes narrow as the muscles relax naturally during sleep. This reduces oxygen in the blood and causes arousal from sleep. The CPAP machine stops this phenomenon by delivering a stream of compressed air via a hose to a nasal pillow, nose mask or full-face mask, splinting the airway (keeping it open under air pressure) so that unobstructed breathing becomes possible, reducing and/or preventing apneas and hypopneas. This has the additional benefit of reducing or eliminating the extremely loud snoring that sometimes accompanies sleep apnea.

I hope the nose mask is better for you. My friend wears a full one and has to wear oxygen all day. He is miserable and is in bad shape when the electricity goes off.
