English term or phrase: hypoxemia
Definition from Mayo Clinic:
Hypoxemia is a below-normal level of oxygen in your blood, specifically in the arteries. Hypoxemia is a sign of a problem related to breathing or circulation, and may result in various symptoms, such as shortness of breath.

Example sentence(s):
  • Corona-Hypoxemia Can Give Rise To Type-2 Myocardial Infection Medical Dialogues
  • The panel also found that CT is appropriate in patients with functional impairment and/or hypoxemia (low level of oxygen in the blood) after recovery from COVID-19. When there is known community transmission, evidence of COVID-19 has been incidentally found on CT scans. In these cases, patients should have COVID-19 testing using a reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) viral assay. Science Daily
  • For one, some critically severe patients will still have severe hypoxemia on ventilation and will require ECMO, according to Ning Zhou, MD, PhD, who is currently working in the ICU ward of Tongji Hospital in Wuhan. MedPage Today
