You should see your primary care physician to assess the need for continuous oxygen. Also, you should stop smoking! Smoking, pneumonia, and oxygen do not mix!

How long can a person be with an oxygen level below 80? Person is 80 yrs old with supplemental oxygen. Getting over pneumonia. Thank you

Please clarify.

Oxygen_supplementation
Do you mean the amount of O2 in the blood or the oxygen saturation. An o2 saturation below 80 is quite low.

Almost done with oxygen therapy after pneumonia.levels with no ox ther/ from 94-98. how can i tell if im getting too much and could it b dangerous?

It's very safe

Oxygen_therapy
If your oxygen saturations are in the mid 90's you are getting enough oxygen. Supplemental oxygen at home is always in low enough concentrations that it will not be harmful. Don't worry

stop worrying and seek help now. Being hospitalized for PNA is not necessarily a bad thing.

No

The reason they're keeping him/her in the hospital is that a baby's oxygen saturation should be above 97% so they're probably giving him/her extra oxygen. As the pneumonia or respiratory process gets better, that should improve.

Headache

Klor-con
Anytime I see ppl who have headaches that start in the hospital, I always question...what now is different such as medications (nitroglycerin, Aggrenox, SSRIs, etc) or new electrolyte disturbances...potassium, sodium, etc.

My mom is being hospitalized for pneumonia and a possible blood clot or copd I'm very worried could it be deadly her oxygen and blood pressure is low?

Unanswerable

Blood
There are just too many unknowns here. I am very sorry to hear of your mother's troubles, but it sounds like she is in the right place and getting the right attention. In these scary scenarios this kind of answer must come from the medical team working with her in person.
