Hi Jason - about 8 months ago I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, my number was 47.5, and also had a home oxygen test and my O2 was in the upper 70s and 80 for over an hour, so I am on 2.5 L of O2. During my sleep study they said I had slight seizure activity, but I have never been diagnosed with epilepsy. Does low O2 and severe apnea cause seizures in a person without epilepsy? I use the swift nano fx for her and am on bipap with 11/6 settings and am very comfortable while I sleep :D

PAP Mask: Practically tried them all.
PAP Machine: Use Phillips Respironics System One APAP with Aflex for mask testing
Humidifier: None
Pressure Setting: When testing, I use APAP with a range of 5-10

I don't know the statistics on it or whether or not it's related. Of the studies that I score there are about half with severe OSA. Of these I probably see about 1-2 per year where there is clear seizure activity present. It's typical for a very low SPO2 desaturation in severe patients.

Short answer....I don't know. ;)
