Health

SpO2, also known as oxygen saturation, is a measure of the amount of oxygen-carrying hemoglobin in the blood relative to the amount of hemoglobin that is not carrying oxygen. The body needs there to be a certain level of oxygen in the blood or it won’t function as efficiently. In fact, very low levels of SpO2 can have serious symptoms. This condition is known as hypoxemia. There is a visible effect on the skin, known as cyanosis due to the blue (cyan) tint that it takes on.
