My blood pressure was taken at A&E Alvin i'm sure if it was due to my heart that would have been picked up, tell u the truth am scared to get the answer....
By "they", I assume your caregivers.  If you notice dizziness, sweating & fatigue while your oxygen level goes up & down, it's best to seek medical attention.  The pulse oximeter might be having difficulty reading your oxygen saturation due to fast or irregular heartrate which could then explain the dizziness, sweating & fatigue.  So don't ignore it.  Go see your physician immediately.  Good luck!
