Overweight, asthma, : If they didn't see anything else on the ct scan abnormal, a low oxygen level in the blood could be due to being overweight, heavy smoking with chronic bronchitis and emphysema, asthma, increased pressure in the arteries of your lungs (pulmonary hypertension) are some of the conditions that can cause a low blood oxygen with a normal ct scan of the chest or x-ray.

Pulmonary problem: You may have a problem with gas exchange, or oxygenating your blood and removing carbon dioxide from it. Keep seeing the pulmonologist (lung doctor) to find out why.
