Can tiredness be caused by hypoxia?

My uncle is tired more often now. He smokes, 63 years old, has a heart pacer, and willnot eat right or exercise. I believe he is not getting the oxygen his body needs. He is seeing a doctor today... I think he needs to be on oxygen and quit smoking!... your opinion?
