I Feel Like My Oxygen Is Low But Its Normal Hows This
My pulse oxygen is staying right around 95-96 what ahould i do? What normal range? And how low can it go?
Normal...: The pulse ox you describe is normal for an adult. The pulse ox would be abnormal if it is below 90%. A pulse ox in the low 90's would be worrisome, especially if you feel short of breath. So, a pulse ox of 95-96% is good and it requires no treatment. Why are you checking your pulse ox? If you are short of breath, be sure to see a doctor ASAP, regardless of your pulse ox reading. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In ER w/ numb cheek+ arm, pallor. CBC + EKG normal.Oximeter showed 99% sat. BUT venous gas blood O2 saturation LOW at 0.34 (ref. range 0.5-0.8). WHY?
Extraction or anemia: The oximeter only shows the amt of oxygen binding of the existing hemoglobin in the ARTERIES. JUST BECAUSE UR SATS R FINE DOESN'T MEAN EVERYTHING IS FINE. This is a common mistake even docs make. In ur case, the VENOUS blood has lower O2 content. It cd mean the body is using up more O2 (more extraction) d/t infx,, vascular probs, smoking, etc. Or u cd be anemic. Less Hgb = lower O2 content. TTYD! ...Read more
