12-10-11 Low oxygen will rob you-to Pulse or not to Pulse?

Posted Dec 11 2011 12:06am
ALL of the cells that make up your body need oxygen or they will DIE!  Hey, no joke!  http://www.heartfailuresolutions.com/1949/oxygen/is-low-blood-oxygen-level-dange  What the Hell is Heart Failure    http://www.heartfailuresolutions.com/21/answer-my-health-question/what-the-hell-    

Low oxygen levels will rob you of your eye sight, short term memory, and your energy. Eventually low oxygen levels will weaken your heart muscle. Read that last sentence again.

It is that important. So how low IS too low?  7 Facts to Remember About Blood Oxygen Saturation Levels

1.  When oxygen saturation levels fall below 92%, the pressure of the oxygen in your blood is too low to penetrate the walls of the red blood cells. It is a matter of gas laws.2. Your insurance company will not pay for oxygen unless your levels fall to 88% oxygen saturation. This has nothing to do with what is best for you, it is just the point at which your insurance is willing to pay. 3.  Every time your oxygen level falls below 92% saturation the cells of your body are oxygen starved.4. When you fail to meet your oxygen needs, every organ in your body suffers the consequences.5. Low oxygen levels may be present only at certain times.

·         when retaining excessive fluid

·         when airways are reacting to pollutants

·         with respiratory illness

·         sleep apnea

·         about 3:00am when you wake gasping for air

·         with activity when the heart muscle has become weak, though isn’t technically “congestive heart failure”…..yet

6.  Recurring low oxygen levels are harmful and should be treated with supplemental oxygen.

7. The problem is that your doctor may not witness your oxygen levels at 88%, and if he doesn’t see that reading on an oxygen meter (oximeter), then most insurance companies will not pay for it, and therefore doctors don’t order it.

About Carrie Tucker   http://www.heartfailuresolutions.com/about   she wrote the book: "Increasing your oxygen from the inside out".   I'm not sure why she doesn't give the credits RRT or CRT after her name, but so far, I find what she writes sounds good.   I like the way she spells out the consequences without softening it - wake up and use your oxygenLearn more-thanks Vlady for this link aboutRespirationhttp://people.eku.edu/ritchisong/301notes6.htm respiratory video http://people.eku.edu/ritchisong/301notes6.htmOxygen transport video http://people.eku.edu/ritchisong/301notes6.htm

I have tested these glasses and how well they oxygenate.   The tubes may look little, but they do better than some cannulas and almost as well as Transtracheal oxygen system (TTO).  I have no financial connections with any of the companys. Oxyview glasses testimonials –good close up photos see how they look   http://www.oxyview.com/Testimonials.aspx and of course some TTO testimonials including mine>http://www.tto2.com/testimonials.html
