96 Oxygen Saturation
What does below CBC result mean?
Hemoglobin 11.5 g/dl
Hematocrit 33.5 %
Rbc 3.63 10^12/l
Wbc 13.3 10^9/l
Platelet 260 10^9/l
Mch 32.6 pg
Mcv 95 fl
Nothing by itself: There is probably a very mild anemia, the white count is minimally up, and as far as I am concerned the platelets are still in the healthy range. As a lab specialist, I am always reminding people that labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam. I can raise my white count to this level taking a cold shower. If you feel well and there are no abnormal cells reported, be thankful. ...Read more
For 57+ F with Hb 10.6, RBC 3.6, Pt 1.2L & ESR 51 while normal MCV & MCHC, does Ferritin 35 [4 - 204] indicate iron deficiency or haemolytic anemia ?
My ferritin level (15) dropped low (from 152) and tibc (471) is high, but iron is normal (71) and hgb remains slightly high (17.5). Iron deficiency?
Blood results showed high MCHC 36.2 (normal range said 31.5 - 35.7). Other stuff ok, Hemoglobin was 15.8 (range said 11.1 - 15.9). MCH 32.6 ?
No worry: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, none of your results are a cause for concern. Do follow your doctor's advice for follow-up care. Next time you get the test done, drink a couple of glasses of water in the morning before the test. ...Read more

What's the question?: It looks like you may have thalassemia or iron deficiency or both. Low MCV with just slightly low hemoglobin suggests thalassemia. Rbc (red blood cell) count would be helpful to distinguish the 2. Other testing could include a ferritin level to measure your body's iron content, and possibly a hemoglobin electropheresis. Is there a family history of thalassemia? ...Read more
Anemia: You have anemia. What is mcv. Most likely anemia is from blood loss and indicates iron deficiency. Can get reticulocyte count checked. Most common cause in you may be heavy menstrual flow. If that is not the case will worry about blood loss from gut and will advise check up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My hemo is 7.7, ferritin 0, iron 16, and iron saturation 4 and just had 2 units of blood. No heavy menses or apparent blood loss. What's going on?
Can be Many things: There are many reason why to have iron diff along with anemia. It could be simply a very sever form of iron difficincy anemia which result from malabsorption, inherited forms of Iron diff. It can also be related to poor iron intake, especially if you are strickly veggie. Blood loss can result also in this-can be from GI. Many other causes and its limited space, hope you feel better and this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My dad 70 yrs has macrocytic anemia. Hemoglobin 9.5, hematocrit 28. Hematologist gave maltofer pill a day. In a month hemoglobin 10 hematocrit 30?
What is the question: Please rephrase your question to get a better answer. Please discuss in detail with his hematologist. The fact that hematologist gave the iron- means that your hematologist thinks there is a component of iron deficiency. So, continue iron and f/u with your md. However, it does not fit exactly with macrocytosis. Other work up still needs to be done to see explanation for macrocytosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My father in law had his prostate removed a little over 1yr. Blood test: hemoglobin 9.8 iron 27 hct 31 MCV 71 RBC 4.4 mchc 31 MCH 22 RDW 19.6. Help?

Probably reactive: You are anemic and the numbers are suspicious for iron deficiency. If you are a healthy 34 year-old who menstruates regularly, you could easily be low in iron. The plaelet count is very high, but is likely reacting to the low iron and should come down if it is replaced. The elevated white cells (WBC) is not as easy to understand. Inflamation, infection, other? Could use more info. Good luck. ...Read more
5 year old has persistent normocytic anemia. High WBC, platelets, low RBC and hemoglobin. Normal MCV, MCH, ferritin and reticulocyte. What's the cause?
My blood test results:
total bilirubin: 1.41 h
ast: 40 h
alt: 100 h
total alk phosphatase: 43 l
serum total protein: 7.1
e.R. Said hepatitis?
Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more
Hard to say: These numbers don't mean anything special, particularly when quoted without the other values on the white count and or without a history and exam. ...Read more

Several factors: Several factors determine oxygen saturation. These include the amount of oxygen you breathe, the ability of the lungs to extract oxygen, the amount of red cells to carry oxygen, the ability of the heart and blood vessels to deliver oxygen to tissues, and efficiency of organ to use oxygen, any problems affecting these can cause low saruration. Treating a disease, exercise, supplemental o2 may help. ...Read more
No: Any oxygen saturation above 90% is ok, but most healthy people have oxygen sats between 95-100%. But, even being 94% can be normal. Oxygen saturation varies minute to minute, so one simple measurement may not give the whole picture. Moreover, pulse oximetry can be notoriously inaccurate, so make sure the measurement is truly accurate. But, in general, 95% saturation is great. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No: 92% is not severely abnormal but is abnormal for someone who is otherwise healthy and as young as you. Note that pulse oximetry is not perfect technology, however, and may not always be accurate. ...Read more
Safe is > 90%: Oxygen saturation is the % saturation of arterial blood with oxygen. Normal for people without lung or heart disease is usually greater than 95%. 85% is too low. If you have an oxygen saturation of 855 you need to see a doctor immediately even if it means going to Emergency. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can my oxygen saturation on my tester at home put it on it said 90% started freaking out quickly went to 97% how is this ?
I have an oxygen saturation reader at home I put it on it said 92% but within Five seconds went to 97% and staYed at 97% why is this?
Normal.: Because the machines are not always precise or accurate. They can be misled by a variety of factors. Don't use the meter to check your pulse either. They generally measure for 6 seconds and multiply by ten so that pulse seems to vary wildly. ...Read more
Oxygen Saturation: Red blood cells contain protein called Hemoglobin. Most of the oxygen in the body is attached to the hemoglobin. Oxygen saturation refers to proportion of red blood cells whose hemoglobin is bound to oxygen. It can be measure by pulse oximetry or by sampling blood from an artery. ...Read more
Are you sick?: Any measured finding has to be correlated with your condition. If you feel fine, then these values are okay. Do you smoke? If you feel bad: have shortness of breath, cough, fever, chest pain, etc. and if you repeat them and the numbers are the same, then you should get seen quickly. Either value can be normal, or indicate a problem, depending on what is going on at the time you measure them. ...Read more
Yes, generally : Speaking. Spo2 refers to any oxygen saturation obtained by using pulse oximetry, the type of absorption spectrophotometry - that is why "p" is added. It will reasonably accurately show the percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin in the individual's blood at the wide range of inspired oxygen concentrations - from room air to a 100% o2. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
