During sleep, the body slows down, and it is normal for your pulse rate to drop a bit. However, your oxygen level should not drop. It should remain over 90% minimally, and preferably over 95%.

As long as your pulse stays between 50-99, it is considered normal. However, for athletes, it is often lower than the average person.
