Hi natalie
minimum oxygen saturation should be above 90%. If it remains chronically in the range of 84-86 you may need oxygentherapy. better meet a cardiologist for myocarditis because it may worsen without treatment.

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
oxygen saturation of 84 he is not at all normal. This needs oxygen supplementation immediately.
Hope you had received required care when needed.
myocarditis is a disease which worsens more with out treatment.you should take appropriate treatment regularly.
Hope this information is useful to you and others.
Take care
