The range of oxygen saturation varies and the readings are within the normal range. The symptom of shortness of breath is concerning, particularly given your cardiac condition. Please have a Cardiologist evaluate. Is your shortness of breath worse with exertion or worse at night? You may need a cardiac echo and exercise test.
