Dr. Ryan Phasouk answered:

What is the likelihood of a blood clot in my lungs if my blood oxygen level is 95%-97%?

Risks

Blood_clot_in_lung
Calculating the risks of a blood clot in your lungs is difficult to do when given only the information of oxygen saturation. A saturation between 95-97% is at or very close to normal, hence it would be impossible to speculate on presence of clot or not. In fact, blood clots to the lung can occur and still result in a normal oxygen saturation between 97-100% Clinicians use other factors for risk

Dr. Steven Neish answered:

Blood oxygen is 95-97%, 2 negative d dimers in Dec. and a clear chest xray but feel some shortness of breath at times, blood clot in lungs or anxiety?

Probably not PE

Blood
Shortness of breath without other symptoms or signs is unlikely to be a result of pulmonary embolus. This is particularly true in someone who is only 31 yo. Unless you have other significant risk factors for abnormal blood clotting, I would not believe you are having PEs.

Unanswerable

There are just too many unknowns here. I am very sorry to hear of your mother's troubles, but it sounds like she is in the right place and getting the right attention. In these scary scenarios this kind of answer must come from the medical team working with her in person.

The seriousness of the situation is related to the chance of the clot breaking free and making it to your lungs, also known as a pulmonary embolism. This can be fatal and definitely needs treatment and close supervision by a doctor.

Dr. Tracy A. Berg answered:

How dangerous is it to develop a blood clot in the lungs?

Size of clot

Lungs
Small clots travelling into your lungs are often symptom free. Huge clots aka saddle emboli can be lethal in minutes. Clot prevention is a big part of all hospital stays and surgical procedures. Pulmonary embolisms are treated agressively and successfully in most cases.

Please tell me, could a dangerous blood clot form from broken hand?

Extremely rare

Blood
Blood clots of concern are venous with risk of migrating to the lungs causing a pulmonary embolus. These typically arise from the lower extremities. Thrombosis of arteries supplying the hand can cause ischemic tissue necrosis but rarely ever occur with a hand fracture.
