What is course of action when co2 is 3 pts higher than normal
In case the elevation of CO2 is caused by lung or bronchus infection, even when the oxygen saturation is over 90, oxygen supply is still recommended.
When the oxygen saturation goes below 90, common practice is to get the person on oxygen. As long as oxygen saturation is over 90, it's okay.
So is it necessary to get some fresh air while sleeping ?
It's not about getting fresh air, it's about getting air or not. Hypercapnia is a disease, healthy people don't need to worry about it.
