Have recently been put on high blood pressure medication. I have had lots of test run on heart and all negative. My oxygen sat was 93%. Is this ok?

Can be many reasons. Sara594, the oxygenation level was low, but it could be related to many factors like nail polish, if your hands are very cold, or health problems. You should discuss the result with your doctor, he/she may be better able to explain the oxygenation level as it relates to your health issues.
