An important indicator, measuring your blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) can be a little complicated.
Blood Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) explained
But first, let’s take a look at what exactly blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) mean. One of the first measurements taken in any medical examination, it is simply defined as an estimate of the oxygen levels in a person’s bloodstream.
Ideally, your body needs to have a SpO2 level between 90 and 100. It is highly unlikely that a person’s SpO2 level to go above the normal level without any external assistance such as supplemental oxygen. However, if the SpO2 level is below normal, the body cannot function properly. This medical condition is called hypoxemia and can cause serious health problems requiring immediate treatment from the doctor.
