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

Several factors: Several factors determine oxygen saturation. These include the amount of oxygen you breathe, the ability of the lungs to extract oxygen, the amount of red cells to carry oxygen, the ability of the heart and blood vessels to deliver oxygen to tissues, and efficiency of organ to use oxygen, any problems affecting these can cause low saruration. Treating a disease, exercise, supplemental o2 may help. ...Read more
