SaO2 Normal Range

The SaO2 is the percentage of Haemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen (HbO2) in the arterial blood, compared to the percentage of unbound haemoglobin (Hb). This measurement is calculated directly from a blood sample, unlike the SpO2, which is estimated from a pulse oximeter reading. A normal SaO2 is typically considered above 95%.
