You will be hooked up to a pulse ox to measure o2 saturation
If your o2 is low you will likely already be on oxygen which can be turned up
You will be lying on your side which provides improved breathing as opposed to on your back.

It does not mention sleep apnea among the potential problems, but it wouldn't hurt to mention this to the anesthesiologist before the procedure, because I would imagine they would have a way to make sure that the airway is open if sleep apnea were to occur.
Be sure to follow all of the prep instructions that you were given. That's very important for the success of the procedure.
