Re: Emphysema/bronchitis

The bronchitis is probably the cause of your O2 sat being lower. The docs like to have it at least at 90%, so you're close. Below 90% requires some oxygen be started to get the level back up. Lower than 90% may cause some confusion and dizziness as your brain is not receiving the oxygen it needs. I know you posted this in December, so hopefully all is better now!
