Summary:
Low oxygen levels or hypoxia can be very dangerous. Want to know why?
Your body requires a set balance of oxygen in the blood to stay healthy. The term hypoxia indicates less oxygen in the tissues of your

Isn't it scary?
Bluish-colored skin can be a pretty good indicator of poor oxygen levels. It’s called cyanosis. You may find your hands, fingers, and toes turning pale or bluish after playing in the snow or on a chilly winter's day.

Next up, if you're talking gibberish or feeling disoriented then low oxygen levels have already caught up with your brain.
Hypoxia does not only showcase physical side effects but also some dangerous mental ones. The brain is the controlling unit of your breathing. When it is supplied with low oxygen it can cause cerebral hypoxia.

If you are in a poorly ventilated room for a while you may struggle to pay attention to your tasks at work.

Difficulty remembering things, inability to make quick decisions, and a general state of confusion can also be linked to low oxygen levels.

Have you been persistently coughing for a long time?
Acute asthma attacks can worsen hypoxic conditions. Your airway will become narrow and will not be able to carry enough oxygen. Coughing will just deplete oxygen stores.

But does that happen to you even when you're sitting in a chair?
A normal heart beats 60-100 times per minute.When hypoxia sets in, there isn’t enough oxygen supply to meet your body's needs.

Do you need to catch your breath? Concentrate on your breathing for a minute.
Shortness of breath or rapid breathing can be another red flag. More than 20 breaths per minute is considered rapid breathing.

If you frequently wake up at night then you may be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.
This condition often puts a restriction on the intake of oxygen by constricting the airway with your tongue.

I know it's difficult to sleep with a mask around your mouth all night. But trust us it works.

Did you know strong pain medications, anesthetics, and a few narcotic drugs can suppress breathing?
Although it'll be dependent on your age, weight, physic, and the dose of the medication, there will be a fluctuation in the brain oxygen levels.
