How Could Elodea Lower Dissolved Oxygen Levels
I have copd. What can cause me to have a great oxygen level when lying still, but have it go down when active? More active i am, the lower it goes.

This may happen with activity when the body starts to use up its oxygen supply. If you rest, you can catch up and get back to normal. However, you may need oxygen at this point. There are specific criteria to qualify, so talk to your family doctor or lung specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The cells can become irritable and have more discharges. People with COPD are exercised to see if they need o2 as oxygenation can drop with activity depending on the severity of disease. ...Read more

My son is 4 and weighs 34lbs he has an upper n lower respiratory infection he also has asthma oxygen level is 91 is that normal?
SeekEvaluationToday!: The oxygen saturation of 91% is lower than we like to see generally speaking. Given his history of asthma in addition to his current respiratory infection he really needs to be evaluated either in the pediatrician's office today (or the ED if unable to get appointment). It may be that you just need to increase the frequency of his asthma meds, but only after a thorough evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
