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. ...Read more
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?
Possibilities...: There are many possible disorders that could have these test results. You should have pulmonary function tests since a ct scan does not tell anything about the function of the pulmonary system; only that the lungs look ok. Musculoskeletal disorders can have test results as you describe. You likely need to see a lung specialist to do a work-up and find out why your pulse ox is low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
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! ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
