Question Friends medical record?

A friend of mine is currently in the hospital due to an accidental or intentional (I haven't heard which yet) overdose on various medications. I don't know much about this incident since its only just happened. But I did learn her vitals as followed: Blood pressure was 116/72 mm-Hg, Pulse 89 bpm, body temp was 92.7 F, respiratory rate was 6, saturation (oxygen?) was 24%.

How bad off is my friend?
Thank you

Re: Friends medical record?

if that is the blood oxygen saturation rate then I'd be quite worried I believe, the normal is 95-100 percent. if that's what it is I'm no dr or health professional. Hope everything will be ok, HUGS, Cathy

Re: Friends medical record?

The blood pressure and pulse are ok. But the saturation being 24% is very very low, the respiration rate being 6 is also very low (16 would be normal?), and the body temperature of 92.7 is also very low (97.2 would be more normal). Are you sure you read these stats okay? I don't see how the blood pressure or pulse would be normal if your friend really had those other stats. I hope your friend is doing okay.
