You should contact your doctor and discuss this with them.
Some things to consider …With apnea you are not able to get air into your lungs due to a blockage and this can cause your oxygen levels to drop. By using CPAP your airway remains open and you are able to get the air your body requests which keeps your oxygen levels from dropping making supplemental oxygen unnecessary for some. If you are wearing supplemental oxygen and not using the CPAP you will continue to have blockages of breath and just as room air can not enter your lungs the supplemental oxygen will not be able to enter either.
