Cerebral Hypoxia

Hi, what test can say whether the brain is receiving the correct amount of oxygen? Thanks

When you go in to the doc office and they put that little clip looking thing on your finger? That is measuring the oxygen in your blood. There is also a blood test - blood gases (which also covers other disorders too).

The finger clip thing is most common as far as I know but I am a layman - but my father in law is right now having low O2 and that is the test they do all the time.
