What Is A Normal Pulse Ox For Someone With Asthma
Around 95%...: Between exacerbations, an asthmatic's pulse ox is normal since airway obstruction in asthma is reversible by definition. During an asthma exacerbation, the airways are obstructed/inflamed to a certain degree depending on the severity of the exacerbation and the pulse ox may decrease.
