Low Oxygen At Night
Depends on cause...: Most often, this is related to obstructive sleep apnea. This is when your airway becomes "floppy" while sleeping. The airway closes and no air can pass into the lungs. Therefore, the oxygen level drops. Using oxygen at night won't fix the problem if this is related to sleep apnea. You will need a special machine that increases the pressure in your airway while sleeping. See a sleep doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

2yo girl with 9 +11 at 53 instead of 60+ blood cell count with low grade fever and waking up at night screaming. What could this be?
See a pediatrician: Answered this yesterday, indicating that had no idea what the values (which blood cells?) you are quoting mean, but that no baby should be waking up screaming every night without some good reason, and the best and only way in which to resolve this is with a thorough history, physical exam and possibly labs and imaging studies. Do they not have pediatricians in the uk health service? ...Read more

Completed sleep study and have mild sleep apnea. Oxygen recorded during sleep 86%. Will a CPAP machine help ease my high rate of PVCs (20,000) a day.
CPAP and PVCs: Hi Derrick, there is data that demonstrates that CPAP usage does decrease the number of PVCs, but this was only in patients diagnosed with heart failure. Keep in mind that regular CPAP usage should improve any current symptoms related to sleep apnea such as day time fatigue and will also prevent long term complications such as pulmonary hypertension. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: The unhealthy breathing patterns and vascular effects of stress hormones combine to do that very often. Proper breathing clears out old air allowing better O2 levels. Please consider CBT or other good psychotherapy to get this under control. Rx may be helpful - but learning skills is a big part. Best! ...Read more

Yes: However, chronically low oxygen levels can cause changes in the heart. Figuring out why is important. Possible causes include chronic lung diseases, neuromuscular weakness or chest wall deformity, pulmonary vascular diseases, and of course sleep disordered breathing such as sleep apnea. Weight also plays a big role. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My mother has sleep apnea and falls during the day. Her oxygenation drops at night to 60%. Why would they avoid adding oxygen to her cpap & daytime?
Depends on reason: Does her oxygen drop to 60% when she stops breathing, or does it drop to 60% and stay there even when she is breathing normally during sleep? If the desaturation is because of sleep apnea, adding oxygen would not help as air is not going to the lungs. Opening the airway with CPAP allows normal breathing and oxygen values. If it is sustained desaturation, oxygen is usually added. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I take beta blocker in morn and CCB at night for high HR. there are times throughout whole day when my HR dips pretty low (sometimes into high 40's)?

If not you should probably see your clinician soon and have an EKG done to be sure there are no signs of a heart block or other problem. And lastly, is this regimen controlling your blood pressure adequately? ...Read more
Loss of sleep at night, always tired during the day and loss of energy since returning from dream trip. Causes at 59?
Lymphocytes are high at 57, my neutrophils are low at 28 and my WBC count is low at 2.6. Sometimes have night sweats. ?
Get seen: Doing the arithmetic, it sounds as if you have a low absolute neutrophil count. If you are on any medications you don't need to be taking, including "holistic herbal remedies", stop them now. You probably will need a hematology consult. This will include a good history and physical, a check for lupus, and probably some other studies. ...Read more
