    Transcript

    00:00 So let's wrap up this video series. Supplemental oxygen is a medical treatment. So remember it has to be ordered by a healthcare provider with a very specific order to the amount and type of oxygen that should be delivered. Supplemental oxygen is prescribed to treat inadequate oxygenation of the blood. So it can be caused by various diseases, trauma, or impairment of the respiratory system. The normal range for PaO₂ is 80-100 in a perfect world. And it represents the partial pressure of dissolved oxygen in arterial blood. A pulse ox or an SaO₂ represents a percentage of oxygen saturation of hemoglobin. Thank you for watching our video today.
