It sounds like it is critical for you to get and use a BIPAP for sleep. You may be doing damage to yourself with these low oxygenation levels during sleep. My wife uses the BIPAP with full support backup for sleep. We have ordered a pillow made for BIPAP/CPAP users so that she can move her head more freely during sleep without displacing the mask.

Sorry to distract from the thread but am concerned about these oxygen levels.
