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

Definition from Tēzaurs:
Hipoksēmija — skābekļa iztrūkums asinīs.

Example sentence(s):
  • Visiem pacientiem, kuriem novēro elpošanas nepietiekamības (hipoksēmijas) pazīmes vai simptomus, ieelpotā gaisa bagātināšana ar skābekli ir galvenā simptomātiskā rīcība, kas jāveic pēc iespējas ātrāk. - Elpas trūkums  
  • Hipoksēmija — pazemināts skābekļa daudzums arteriālajās asinīs. - Ārsts mājās  
  • Respiratoriskās jeb elpošanas sistēmas galvenais uzdevums ir gāzu maiņa — apgādāt organismu ar skābekli un izvadīt ogļskābo gāzi. Ja sistēma netiek ar šo uzdevumu galā, arteriālajās asinīs novēro pazeminātu skābekļa daudzumu – hipoksēmiju, daļā gadījumu – vienlaikus arī paaugstinātu ogļskābās gāzes daudzumu jeb hiperkapniju. - Latvijas Astmas un alerģijas biedrība
