Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

Exercise: It appears that all of your cardiac tests are normal, and that is very good. I do not see that you listed any lung evaluations, such as pulmonary function tests.

See your doctor for an individualized exercise RX ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

73 year old woman with healthy heart and lungs has been put on oxygen because of low oxygen stat. it will drop for no reason to 70's then go up.
Faulty reading: The most important step to assessing low oxygen is to make sure the pulse oximeter is reading correctly. Pulse oximeters can be effected by nail polish, skin temperature and other things. A common cause of low oxygen is shunting. Sitting for long periods, obesity and shallow breathing due to pain can decrease the amount of lung used for oxygen exchange. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

28/m. My dorsal spine MRI says "dorsal kyphosis is lost". My chest hurts since 2 yrs and I now feel this lost curvature is the reason. Lung/heart ok??
Hard to say: There is a normal amount of kyphosis seen in the thoracic spine. But an MRI is not a good test for kyphosis, because the MRI is done with a patient laying on the back and it is normal for a person to lose much of their kyphosis in that position. Full length standing X-rays with flexion and extension views are the typical way spine alignment is assessed. ...Read more
