have another thread as well, dt1 has viral pneumonia and was in hospital last week, yesterday his sats were 94 today 93/92. His chest sounds clear although breathing fast snd very pale. Gp thinks he should be fine, but I'm worried. But don't want to come across as an over protective paranoid mother!
If you're concerned, call the hospital's children's department and ask them since you were in last week. They won't mind and he'll be checked out if they feel he needs to be. Health professionals prefer to see a child too often than too late.
I agree with Galena, if worried get a second opinion. If he was in hospital last week then you won't come across as over protective and paranoid.
FWIW I don't have a lot of faith in GPs with it comes to babies and toddlers chests, the ones I have seen always seem to miss things. Not saying this is the case with your GP but don't necessarily take his word as gospel if your not happy.
I would still ring the hospital for advice. I dont think the hospital would be happy with a sats reading of 92. They can still give you advice but if they want you to go back in you would have to be referred by gp or a and e again instead of straight to the ward. Hope he is feeling better soon.
Sats should be 92% and above so i'd get him checked out if i were you as from what you've said they have been on the low side. If we had a child that had sats of 92 we would monitor to see if they were picking up or not as if they are dropping below 92 frequently and not picking up then they may need oxygen. I will say though that I find drs (especially GPs) often use the wrong probes to check sats on children and babies which will affect the reading. Also if a child is moving around a lot, crying etc you may not get a very good reading either. It's worth getting him checked out again though.
