Normal Oxygen Saturation Levels While Sleeping
It all depends: Without knowing a detailed medical history to determine if "low" oxygen may be a chronic, well compensated issue, it is impossible to answer. Typically normal oxygen staurations are within 94-97% while sleeping. Patients with sleep breathing disorders, like sleep apnea may experience dips in this saturation. However, it is standard to try and keep saturation above 89%. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
Right on the brink: Typically, O2 sats while asleep in a healthy individual should be >90. If yours are typically hitting 90 or below then, I'd say you are right in the crack between barely normal and barely abnormal. I'd think for a 19 year old nonsmoker you could do a bit better than that so it all depends on what else is going on. That number by itself doesn't diagnose OSA but "yes" you could have it. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Oxygen sat curve: If you look at the p50 or oxygen saturation curve, anything above 90% is ok for the hemoglobin to unload as it gets into the tissues and supply them. As the curve goes down to 75% about pao2 of 45, this nears the saturation in the veins where unloading of oxygen to the tissues including heart muscles becomes difficult and there will be eventual death as it gets lower than that. ...Read more
Resting oxygen saturation is 98-100 consistently. During intense exercise (85% mhr), it drops to 93-94. Is this normal?
My iron levels came back 21 low, transferrin 352.0 normal, tibc 492.8 high , saturation 4.3 % low . Would this be normal anemia?
Low iron and saturation %, normal tranferrine and ferrantine levels.I have thalassimia.Cbc normal.Why are iron and saturation% low.Thankyou?
