I have been wondering this for a while, and I wanted to get some other people's views on this or what they have been told by their doctors regarding measurements of SPo2.
I was told, by a few doctors, that during an asthma attack that my saturations would not drop unless it was being complicated by an infection or it was getting serious and more help would be needed. Yet I have been told by nurses and paramedics before now that they can't help me as ""Your SATs are fine"". I have begun to hate that phrase as it can lead to me not getting the right treatment and has nearly ended badly on many occasions.
What do you all think?
