Question:

What are the values required for oximetry?

Answer:

Exercise oximetry requires that three (3) oximetry values be obtained during the same testing session. The three required tests are:

  • At rest oximetry on room air showing a non-qualifying result
  • Oximetry while exercising on room air showing a qualifying result
  • Oximetry while exercising on oxygen showing an improvement in the hypoxemia identified while exercising on room air
