Pulmonary: Despite your oxygenationaintaining at a good level if you are having symptoms it is time to see your doctor. Are you using inhalers and or inhaled steroids? Are you on a maintenance program? Talk to your doctor regarding these issues. If your having chest pain go to an emergency department.
