Oxygen

Oxygen

What are the oxygen counts that one should be aware of. . When is it to low? At what numbers?

For what its worth Medicare won’t pay for oxygen unless it is 88% or less.

Yes I have a pulmonary Dr too! I am seeing the cardiologist soon. My pulmonary dr is a cardio/pulmonary critical care dr. He takes care of PH patients on the pulmonary side. The cardiologist I will be seeing is head of the CHF(congestive Heart Failure) group so he will decide which medicines for the fluid I keep having. Lasix is just not doing the job. Watch your oxygen levels close. When I don’t feel good mine drop easy. Keep me posted! Take care. ❤️

Thank you! I knew mine went lower on my readings at night. It is usually at 93 during day though. Do you have a pulmonary Dr?

That's what my doctor said too. Anything below 90 is not good
