Dr. Steven Neish answered:

Is blood oxygen level 93 ok?

It depends

Oxygen
If you live at sea level, and the pulse oximetry machine if functioning normally, your arterial oxygen saturation should be higher than 93%. If you live at high altitude, the partial pressure of oxygen in the air is lower and, depending on how high you are, an oxygen saturation level of 93% may be normal.

92% blood oxygen level, is this okay?

Not really

Blood
If it is a nonsmoker, then no, should be 95%+ as "normal." Lower can indicate lung infection or function abnormality. Smokers or persons with lung diseases often have lower saturations like this. If no explanation, should see Dr for exam and probably chest xray & breathing treatment(s).

Dr. Matthew Majzun answered:

What fixes low oxygen level at night?

Depends on cause...

Cpap
Most often, this is related to obstructive sleep apnea. This is when your airway becomes "floppy" while sleeping. The airway closes and no air can pass into the lungs. Therefore, the oxygen level drops. Using oxygen at night won't fix the problem if this is related to sleep apnea. You will need a special machine that increases the pressure in your airway while sleeping. See a sleep doctor.

How can I boost my blood oxygen level?

Supplement

Blood
You could supplement oxygen if you had a condition which required it. It would do you no good just to do it.

Dr. John Manzella answered:

Can low oxygen level cause joint pain?

Hypoxia hurts all!

Hypoxia
Low oxygen levels (hypoxia) not only affect the lungs, heart & brain but have a severe impact on the joints. Hypoperfusion (a lack of nutrients) to the joints may cause severe pain. Any one who has attempted to mountain climb to fast can appreciate the severe aches incurred w/ the lower oxygen levels at higher altitudes. You are not going crazy if your joints hurt more as your oxygen levels drop!
