Do intermittent low levels of sp02 require medical attention?
Im a 28 year old female never smoked currently recovering from bronchitis that has presented with no othwr symptoms but shortness of breath..
Would like to notate the provider also did an EKG just to be safe and said my heart appeared to be in great health. Im just overly concerned about the drops in my oxygen saturation levels.
This is normal!
The only time you should get concerned if it it goes down to low values and stays there for long periods.
Transient drops could be related to changes in positioning and they really have no pathological significance.
I have also looked at your blood tests and the results are XXXXXXX
Hope I have answered your query.
