Blood Oxygen Saturation Levels Chart
Not quite: Oxygen saturation reflects the proportion of red blood cell pigment - hemoglobin that is loaded ("saturated") with oxygen. It is unitless and shown as %. Oxygen uptake is the quantity of oxygen absobed/ consumed per unit time , usually in milliliters per min. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My blood oxygen saturation is 96% but can there be chances that my blood is not circulation properly to my skin?
Yes.: At your age chances of lack of circulation is unlikely unless there are preexisting conditions like diabetes or rheumatologic problems like sle, etc.. Smoking can also cause it as do some drugs that cause vasoconstriction or closing off of blood vessels. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›

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 ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
