I'm On 2 Litters Of Oxygen. My Pulse/oximeter Is Always 98/88

I'm On 2 Litters Of Oxygen. My Pulse/oximeter Is Always 98/88

My oxygen is always 98/90 but my chest is still tight. No inhalers are helping

Maybe you need a change of inhalers. Sometimes medication or inhalers stop being effective. You may need a decongestive to clean out your chest. Ask your doctor. I've had that happen to me with inhalers. Good luck.

As a 24 year Nurse, You really need to call your Pulmonologist (not your PCP)
and make an appt, ASAP. Something, I have told my patients, Go to your Pulmonologist, Just show up, tell them. Do Not Talk to the Receptions or the medical Assistant. You tell I need to talk with The Nurse. .Your Right is to see the Doctor. They will see you. It works everytime.

My oxygen is always above 90 and my pulse is at least 88 or better I meant. I use an symbicort inhaler and a rescue inhaler when needed. When I upped my oxygen to 4 my oxygen and pulse reading hadn't changed. I have an dr appointment on Monday so he can explain everything to me. Thanks everyone for the answers
