Hyperparathyroidism: Shortness of breath/low oxygen is NOT a typical symptom of hyperparathyroidism, unless very severe disease with cardiovascular complication and anemia.

Yes: There are many conditions, e.g. Heart disease and anemia, that can cause shortness of breath without significant drop in oxygen saturation.
