what if O2 saturation drops below 90? Stop? Keep exercising anyway? Reduce intensity?

Get yourself a pulse oximeter, this way you know what your levels are always. For me I find that just walking and increasing the amount I do is enough. It does make my mental health better and it makes the lungs stronger so I feel better over all

My goes as low as 86-87. I can’t tell when it is dropping. I am told to stop immediately, drink some cold water & check the 02 level. When the level goes back to 90+ then I can restart

I just slow down and or up my liters of oxygen, find a stride and keep going.

Mine does drop sometimes...I just keep up with whatever I am doing and also carry a monitor for levels so I can see if they drop

Yeah O2 is a very personalized number that can’t really be advised to because it’s different for each person with PH!
