Happy hypoxia a silent drop in oxygen level below the required mark without any breathing stress but pleading to cardiac arrest or brain stroke . People sometimes say sudden death without no prior symptoms deceiving the doctors

Very important topic addressed in concise and beautiful analytical way Happy Hopoxia .. Definition .. causes ,sign and symptoms , test and treatment . Precautions and prevention. We have seen pt of happy hypoxia in second wave of Covid 19 pandamic .Pt were unaware about their oxygen levels .Pulse oximeter and 6 Minutes walk were the key factor to identify Covid 19 positive and even normal people were identified by pulse oximeter and 6 minutes walk test. Pulse oximeter and thermometer are very important tool in Covid 19 pandamic . Oxygen level of Pt in OPD with temperatures should be taken care of all Pt

'Happy Hypoxia' or 'silent hypoxia' actually gives covid pts false happiness like 'Sweet Poison' and 'Misleading'. If not detected & treated in time then this happy hypoxia may cause sudden death due to Cardiorespiratory failure. Hence regular monitor of Spo2 % & 6 minutes walking test (which can be done at home) are very important & significant diagnostic tools .Later Blood gas analysis also may be done for confirmation. Thanks to 'Medi-Insights' for updating our knowledge in favour of COVID-19 pts especially if asymptomatic.

I have seen many pts in icu who had hypoxia in ABG also their saturation are upto 91-92 only still they were not dyspoenic.
