Im a 32 years old male, I recently bought a pulse oximeter and I found out thst my sp02 drops to 91% when I sleep, is that normal?
Hello and thank you for addressing your concern.
However, because the information provided is too short and unclear. We find it very hard to assess the real condition.
An oximeter is a device that measures your oxygen levels in the bloodstream. Although the ideal range is around 95% to 100%, it can fluctuate from time to time due to the limitation of the device. Accordingly there are various factor to a sudden plunge during your sleep. But if is not accompanied by other symptoms, you should not be worried.
With that being said, if you are still not satisfied or felt further consultation is needed, we encourage you to seek help from the nearest clinic or hospital in your area or talk directly to our doctors by using this link. (DoctorOnCall) Thank you.
