Hsd a sleep study done and my 02 fell to 86% during deep sleep. Is this normal? Seems low.

No.: If you had a sleep study then the doctor who ordered it should address this question. As a rule we like to see O2 levels remain above 90% during sleep, although even higher levels, if more than 3 or 4 points below your usual O2 level during sleep, and if associated with a detectable breathing disturbance, can be a sign of a problem. COPD, etc., can cause lower O2 levels during sleep as well. ...Read more

23y/o female, I wet the bed for the 1st time last night could this be a undefined medical condition? I was in a deep sleep I had no idea until I woke

Not to worry: About this, if you are a very deep sleeper it is possible you were having a dream about urination; that could cause you to go and is not likely to be any kind of problem. You might want to sleep on a towel for a few nights just to be sure. Some medications could possibly cause this, so if you have just started on something you might want to check the side effects. A lot of alcohol could too. ...Read more
