Normal Oxygen Level For Infants
Environment: The environment that produces normal eyes is the womb. While in the womb, baby's eyes get about 60% blood oxygen content. Early work with premi's included putting them in "incubators" & piping in oxygen, hoping that they survived. Testing blood gasses was almost impossible, but when obtained,O2 use was geared at keeping above 90%. Now they keep it lower. The high blood oxygen triggered damage in some ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A doc on here said that the FP rock n play has been known to cause O2 desaturation in an infant that led to CP. Where can I find evidence of this?
Don't know that case: But here is a good website of which to be aware: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Fisher-Price-Recalls-to-Inspect-Rock-N-Play-Infant-Sleepers-Due-to-Risk-of-Exposure-to-Mold/ A fungal respiratory infection could be life-threatening to patients of any age. ...Read more
What is a normal oxygen level? When I went to my doctors appointment it was 100% then 99%. Is this normal?
What is normal levels of oxygen in the blood? What is considered low and what is considered dangerous? Is levels in the 80s ok?
It is low: If you are asking about oxygen saturation the level should be above 90%. Normally it is 97 — 99%. If the levels are in the low 80s — the person should be on oxygen. The oxygen saturation is obtained via external device placed on the finger or earlobe. If you obtain arterial blood and measure oxygen level — po2 the level in 80 is ok. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My normal oxygen level us 96-98 on a pulse ox, I traveled to new Mexico and it was 91-95 and I didn't feel well? Why the drop in oxygen?
Interesting: I wonder if this has something to do with atmospheric change, but would have to know where you originate from. I'm also curious as to why you measure your oxygen level regularly. Is there a health product for this? The lower O2 level could be a cause of not feeling well or an effect of something else that made you not feel well (eg pneumonia). Recommend virtual c/s for more informed response. ...Read more
Not normal. : Some persons with COPD can tolerate a low o2 level (usually in the high 80s or low 90s) but below 88 it's usually getting problematic even for the worst COPD patients. ...Read more

What kind of long term damage can be done when a baby's oxygen level is (for an extended period) 30%? (on into adulthood)
Much depends on: The gestational age at birth, the reason for the hypoxemia, the duration, & if/when episodes of decreased oxygen flow to the fetal brain occurred prior to labor & delivery. The best prognostic measures are MRI findings at the time of discharge from the nicu, the presence & severity of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy in the newborn period & response to early intervention developmental therapies. ...Read more
My baby is 36 weeks an every time she's giving a bottle her oxygen level drops why is this happening? A yes she was born early too.
Pls can you advise me, as to what is the normal range on electronic oximeter for oxygen level for healthy person, what figure is conserning?
Sat monitor: It all depends upon the atmospheric pressure at the time of testing. But 96% to 99% would be ideal. ...Read more
