As a result,hypoxia of your intrinsic pacemaker (sinus node) may develop into atrial fibrillation. Hope the sleep test and its treatment improve your condition. ...Read more
Nails are turning blue which i hear is due to low oxygen in blood cells. Can lack of physical activity & outside air cause this?
Probably not: Blue nails can be from poor perfusion due to vascular disease, low oxygen (hypoxia), or from toxins such as methemoglobenemia. Deconditioning (lack of activity) may be a symptom of low oxygen and not a cause. Outside versus inside air have the same oxygen content. I would advise you see an md to do a workup for anemia, oxygen levels, and vascular disease. ...Read more
Lung disease: Is the commonest reason for a low level of oxygen in the blood. It can also happen in heart disease if the heart is failing and fluid builds up in otherwise-healthy lungs, or if there is a hole in the heart, causing blood to bypass the right heart circulation into the lungs and skip picking up oxygen there. These are examples of some common causes. Smoking, high altitude=examples of lung reasons. ...Read more
