Blood Oxygen Saturation Level 84 End Stage Lung
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Oxygen sat curve: If you look at the p50 or oxygen saturation curve, anything above 90% is ok for the hemoglobin to unload as it gets into the tissues and supply them. As the curve goes down to 75% about pao2 of 45, this nears the saturation in the veins where unloading of oxygen to the tissues including heart muscles becomes difficult and there will be eventual death as it gets lower than that.
My blood oxygen saturation is 96% but can there be chances that my blood is not circulation properly to my skin?
Lungs are clear (ct scan) heart is okay (echocardiogram, ekg) then why oxygen saturation levels are low?
Please: Have evaluation by a pulmonologist.Get a more detailed answer ›
My oxygen saturation fluctuates when standing vs reclining following a whiplash. Heart and lungs are normal. Is phrenic nerve likely causing it?
Details?: Everyone's oxygen saturation fluctuates regardless of position. When it's being tested, you must remember to keep breathing. This may sound overly simple, but people have a normal tendency hold their breath. An easy way to screen for phrenic n damage is to do a simple chest x-ray. Radiation dose is trivial. The hemidiaphragm will be elevated on the side that has damage, if present.
Oxygen saturation drops to 83 to 87 when my new born baby sleeps. Lungs X-Ray and eco screening has shown normal study. What would be the reason.
Birth History?: Are you testing your baby's oxygen level at home? How many days old is the baby? Was the birth vaginal? Were there any complications? What was the birth weight? How is the baby feeding? How frequent are his stools? Does he show signs of respiratory distress? Does he have a heart murmur? The answer to your question definitely depends on all of the above answers!
7mo w/acrocyanosis. Per Dr, heart & lungs OK, good perfusion, 100% oxygen saturation. I keep her warm but I still see her blue/purple. She's fair skin?
In a person with sleep apnea, what causes the rises and falls in oxygen saturation of arterial blood during sleep?
Sleep apnea: Sleep apnea is defined as stopping breathing for 10 seconds. During that time, the body is not getting any oxygen. In addition, there can be instances that last less than 10 seconds, or where a less than adequate effort to breath is attempted. These also reduce the oxygen intake.See 2 more doctor answers
Why do I get daily attacks of shortness of breath when my peak flow, oxygen saturation, pulse, temperature, blood test and EKG results are all normal?
Breath: Many things can cause you to feel short of breath. One of the most common is a panic attack. Are you prone to them? Other medical conditions such as congestive heart failure with volume overload are frequently seen in elderly patients. Other heart conditions and pulmonary conditions can cause this as well. In a young healthy person such as yourself a panic attack seems more likely. See your Dr
Reasons for feeling like I can't get enough air when my oxygen saturation is good and my chest isn't tight?
Allergies, ???: With your description, I believe that you really need to see a doctor who can refer you to an allergist, ENT or respiratory specialist.See 1 more doctor answer
Been feeling hot at night but no fever sweating during the day chest pain under left nipple and trouble breathing but oxygen saturation 97%?
What would cause shortness of breath and pain in left breast chest CT scan normal X-ray normal abg normal EKG abnormal oxygen saturation normal?
Normal: I believe you are talking about newborns with a pectus who is on the ventilator. If this is the case, the saturation should be normal 99%, unless there is something else affecting the oxygenation level.See 1 more doctor answer
Smoking and Oxygen: Yes. But the test is deceptive. It does not mean you do not have lung damage. It does not measure how much carbon dioxide you have or how many of your red blood cells are no longer available to carry oxygen. It just tells me that you are still young enough that you have some ability to maintain good oxygen levels despite the nineteen years of trying to damage your lungs.See 1 more doctor answer
