Does anyone have any ideas on what could cause your O2 level to drop suddenly? The other night I had to be treated at the ER and when I was checked in I was coughing severely, SOB and sweating but my O2 level was 98%. I was placed in a room and started on a series of breathing treatments. When the tech came in to give me my second treatment, my O2 had dropped to 86% and he placed me on oxygen. I could understand if it had been that low when I checked in but this was after about an hour and my symptoms had subsided and I had already had one treatment. I will see my pulmonologist tomorrow. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas? At the ER the doc said that a loss of O2 is to be expected with copd or asthma over time. I asked him why it had been at 98% when I checked in. He never really answered that. Anyway, any thoughts?
