While you’re sleeping, your oxygen saturation levels tend to drop, even in individuals with healthy lungs. If you have COPD or another type of chronic lung disease, you may suffer with nocturnal desaturation which can interfere in your good night’s sleep, leading to substantial health issues. Supplemental oxygen can help and provide you with a good night’s sleep by keeping your oxygen levels up.
