Jola,

Explanation:
P50 means that some parameter in a given point reaches 50% of its maximal value. It is impossible to answer your questions precisely, while it is completely unclear what it is all about.
If you are translating some kind of a medical equipment manual you cannot give approximate translation, otherwise in future it could do harm to some user of this equipment.

Ciśnienie tlenu, przy którym nasycenie tlenem hemoglobiny wynosi 50%

Explanation:

P50

Hemoglobin P50 is the partial pressure of oxygen where hemoglobin is 50% saturated with oxygen, normally about 27 mmHg.
http://sprojects.mmi.mcgill.ca/cardiophysio/Glossary/glossar...

Bigeye tuna blood displayed an unusually low P50 (i.e., the PO2 at which the blood is
50% saturated) (1.6-2.0 kPa; 12-15 mm Hg when equilibrated with 0.5% CO2)
compared to the P50 of yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares, Bonnaterre) or skipjack
tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis, Linnaeus) blood (2.8-3.1 kPa; 21-23 mm Hg when
equilibrated with 0.5% CO2).
