Blood Oxygen Finger Extremities
Yes: Absolutely. Depending on the degree of vascular disease in your arms and legs, this can definitely vary. However it is less common to have vascular disease in your arms than in your feet. This is why oxygen levels in the fingers are most often more accurate than in the toes in people with vascular disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Have unrepaired ASD; tingling&numbness in fingers when pulse is below 90, in feet below 80, now moving to face. Is this due to poor blood flow/O2?
Asd: These would be unusual symptoms for ASD or for heart rates under 80. This type of generalized parasthesiae can be due to deficiencies in vitamin B12,magnesium,calcium,potassium or types of neuropathy. Discuss this with your physician who will order the appropriate tests and/or refer you to a neurologist. ...Read more
What is normal levels of oxygen in the blood? What is considered low and what is considered dangerous? Is levels in the 80s ok?
Oxygen level....: The oxygen saturation, or pulse oximetry, should be in the 90's normally. Any value of less than 88% on room air qualifies a patient for supplemental oxygen therapy. So, an oxygen saturation in the 80s is not normal. Your doctor will need to find out why your oxygen level is low and provide treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Are there any tests to find out if blood is carrying oxygen to your body specifically your skin properly? I mean oxygenated blood and circulation.
Sores: Inadequate blood supply to skin results in sores where the tissue dies from inadequate blood supply. This can be seen in patients with severe raynaud's phenomenon (fingers or toes turn completely white for periods of time then red when blood rushes back in). If you have unexplained sores (not from an injury), then see a dermatologist.If affecting only fingers and/or toes, see a rheumatologist. ...Read more
Yes and yes: The meter used for saturation is dependent on blood pulse and the color change that's reflected in the machine at a spectrum of light. As long as the tester can do that on the finger, it should give the proper saturation within the error limit of the machine. ...Read more
If the oxygen finger sensor showers good oxygen level. Does that mean your getting good oxygen to you brain as well?
Few basic reasons: Haemoglobin- a protein molecule, carries o2 in the blood vs called arteries and after o2 is used by tissues, the deoxyg. Hb is carried by vessels called veins -> heart -> lungs to get new o2 molec. Added. When hb is low in quantity or abnl.In str-> o2 is low in blood. Iron, folate, B12 deficiency- anemia o2 defective basic str.As in thalssemia, sicklecell dz. 2.Heart defects->mixing a &venous bloo. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: If you live at sea level, and the pulse oximetry machine if functioning normally, your arterial oxygen saturation should be higher than 93%. If you live at high altitude, the partial pressure of oxygen in the air is lower and, depending on how high you are, an oxygen saturation level of 93% may be normal. ...Read more
