What Is Your Normal Oxygen Level?
Your blood oxygen level indicates how much oxygen your red blood cells are carrying. High blood oxygenation plays an essential role in ensuring that your muscles, brain, and other organs receive the energy they need to function properly. That’s why it’s so important to understand how to measure your current oxygen level—and determine whether it falls within an acceptable range.
Measuring Your Levels
Symptoms of low blood oxygen levels
shortness of breath
- rapid breathing
- chest pain
- high blood pressure
- lack of coordination
- visual disorders
- sense of euphoria
- rapid heartbeat
Hypoxemia, or oxygen levels below the normal values, may be caused by:
- not enough oxygen in the air
- the inability of the lungs to inhale and send oxygen to all cells and tissues
- the inability of the bloodstream to circulate to the lungs, collect oxygen, and transport it around the body
How to adjust your blood oxygen level?
If your blood oxygen level is too low, you may need to boost your oxygen saturation. This is often done with supplemental oxygen.
Home supplemental oxygen is considered a medication, and your doctor must prescribe it. It’s important to follow your doctor’s specific advice on how home oxygen should be used to avoid complications. Your health insurance may cover the expense.
How can I monitor my blood pressure in 24 hours?
A pulse oximeter is a medical device that indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient's blood (as opposed to measuring oxygen saturation directly through a blood sample) and changes in blood volume in the skin, producing a photoplethysmogram that may be further processed into other measurements.
Pulse oximeter and wearables you can buy right now
Pulse oximeters are starting to find their way into some big-name wearables and that data is being used in very different ways.
Arguably it started with the Withings Pulse Ox fitness tracker, which measured blood oxygen levels when you placed your finger on the sensor on the back of the device. But things have changed since then, and now the process of taking those measurements happen much more easily from the wrist.
Trackers with pulse oximeters
If you are convinced that you need a wearable with a pulse oximeter, we have good news! There are a number of fitness trackers and smartwatches that already sport the SpO2 sensor.Bozlun is one of the manufacturers that has incorporated a pulse oximeter in many of its recent wearables, including the Bozlun YWK-P9, BOZLUN B31, Bozlun B30, and W3, as well as most of the sport, fitness tracker watches.
