: Has anyone ever had a blood oxygen level in the normal range but still had bronchial spasms. I have a new doctor that insists that this is not possible. I recently saw him because I could tell that I had some swelling going on and he would not alter my meds in any way. I have had asthma for 15 years and know when my allergies are getting to me. Any Help!
My son has had asthma since he was one year old. On numerous occasions I have had to take him to the ER because he would mot respond well to ventolin, and sometimes his SATS would be 97%-99% even though he was wheezing somthing shocking. Earlier this year he was bought in to hospital via ambulance, his SATS were about 97%, he was quite bad (inspiration and expiration). When he got to the ER he was taken to the resusitation (sp?) room on continuous nebs, he was given a steroid drip, and taken to ICU within 4 hours with a respirator on stand-by. His SATS did eventually drop to about 90% though. So in answer to your question I think It is deffintly possible.
