The oxygen level for COPD patients can vary depending on the severity of their condition. In general, a normal oxygen saturation level (SpO2) is considered to be between 95-100%. However, in some cases, COPD patients may experience lower oxygen levels due to the reduced lung function associated with the disease.
If a COPD patient’s oxygen level falls below 90%, it is generally considered to be a cause for concern and may require supplemental oxygen therapy to maintain adequate oxygen levels. However, the specific target oxygen saturation level for a COPD patient will depend on their individual medical history, symptoms, and other factors.
It’s important for COPD patients to work closely with their healthcare provider to monitor their oxygen levels and develop a treatment plan that addresses their individual needs.
