Question:Blood Oxygen Saturation level - what is the fatal and normal range?
How long is a sub 85% level sustainable without more than a simple mask? This is about my son. He is on hospice care, and is terminal. He is 1 year old, 9 pounds 8 ounces. This is a good weight for him due to proportion. He has a disease called rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. He almost passed in july and barely beat an rsv infection that weakened him significantly.
He is on a nasal cannula @ 1l. His oxygen sat level is now in in the high 80s with the 1l nasal cannula delivery. It drops to low 80s or worse at times when he cries or strains, or even urinates. Before these recent episodes he was in the low 90s with no oxygen.
We have also put him on a feeding pump, which works with ng tube, to spread out his feeds and avoid fluid shock to his sytem. We will no hospitalize him. He was on oxygen only supplemental until 4 days ago when he had some respiratory episodes and needed to go back on oxygen permanently.
I'm trying to get a realistic picture from someone who is no bias.
Answers:To be honest as a respiratory therapist in a hosptial who did cardiac surgery on patients as young as a week old... I have taken children off oxygen at a level of 78 percent with doctors orders. There are certain conditions with babies that the low saturation is not a for certain indicator of death.
levels of o2 depend on age and health.
normal should be 90-100
panic should be below 87 however certain conditions permit lower levels. Talk with the doctors or health care people
I am soo sorry about your situation and you wil be in my prayers.
Question:What is the normal blood sugar level in a normal person without diabetes after they eat some kind of sugar or something?
Answers:I got these numbers from my doctor who is an endocrinologist, and also from the ADA. We also discussed them in one of my diabetic ed. classes
Readings for those that do NOT have diabetes
Fasting....70 to 100
2 hours after a meal ...70 to 140
Question:I have been trying to lose weight and decided to monitor my blood sugar level. It has ranged anywhere from 67-97. Does not seem to matter if I fast or eat. Does this fall in the "normal range"?
Answers:Normal Fasting Blood Sugar
A normal fasting blood sugar (which is also the blood sugar a normal person will see right before a meal) is:
83 mg/dl (4.6 mmol/L) or less.
Many normal people have fasting blood sugars in the mid and high 70 mg/dl (3.9 mmol/L) range.
Though most doctors will tell you any fasting blood sugar under 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/L) is "normal", there are several studies that suggest that testing with a fasting blood sugar in the mid 90 mg/dl (5 mmol/L) range often predicts diabetes that is diagnosed a decade later.
Post-Meal Blood Sugar (Postprandial)
Independent of what they eat, the blood sugar of a truly normal person is:
Under 120 mg/dl (6.6 mmol/L) one or two hours after a meal.
Most normal people are under 100 mg/dl (5.5 mmol/L) two hours after eating.
You must pay attention to the time that you test. Otherwise your may be testing in vain.
Good luck Tin
