What does "de-sat'd" mean? While heavily sedated with morphine following major surgery, a nurse entered my room and without waking me clamped an oxygen mask over my face. The experience was alarming! her explanation (above) did not satisfy.
The : The saturation of oxygen in your blood is often monitored by a pulse oximeter, a device attached to the surface of your body, usually on the finger tip, toes or earlobe. It measures the content of oxygenated hemoglobin in your red cells. While not as accurate as a blood test, it is readily available. Oxygen saturation is expressed as a percentage, a number ranging from 0 to 100, normally on room air, the oxygen saturation is greater than 98%. The saturation reflects the content in the blood reasonably well in the range of normal range of acid levels and oxygen in most individuals. However, the saturation is affected by the amount of inhaled oxygen, the respiratory drive to pull oxygen into your lungs, changes in acid levels in the blood (such as seen in severe infections or kidney failure), problems with the lungs itself (such as excess fluid or pneumonia). After surgery, the combined effects of anesthesia and narcotics tend to depress the respiratory system, such that oxygen is not being drawn into the lungs (usually because of oversedation). This leads to less oxygen in the lungs and a drop in the oxygen levels and thus a drop in the saturation - thus the term: "de-sat" or desaturation. This can be easily remedied by reducing narcotics, or reversing narotic effect (e.g. Narcan), arousing the individual, and/or adding supplemental oxygen. Thus the use of the oxygen mask, which increases the saturation, but does not address the reason for oversedation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Whats your ??: If you are asking whether smoking 4-6 cigarettes/d increases his chance of another heart attack or blockage of his bypasses or stents, yes it will (altho not as much as 20 cigs/d). If you are asking what you can do about it, the answer is not much, other than expressing your concern and caring for your friend. Nagging doesnt help, and often makes it worse, because he will avoid you (and others). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My brother is 14 and was breathing heavily but wouldn't respond then after a breathing tube was put in started to shake and threw up and moves but isn't awake and slurred his words once, what's going on?
This is the cessation of breathing for 10 seconds or more. Most apnea is obstructive being caused by collapse or obstruction of the airway leading to lack of air flow. However, it can be a central process, where the respiratory center of the brain fails to signal the respiratory respiratory system to initiate a breath. Lastly, some apnea is mixed central ...Read more
