French term or phrase: K O2
This is from a cardiology report from Québec.
The exact examination type is unclear; the heading is "HÉMODYNAMIQUES" and it looks like it is probably some kind of echocardiogram, giving pressure measurements in various sections of the heart.

At the top of the document is says:
SC: 2.09 m2 Hgb 13.8 Hgb (g/l) 130.00 K 02 133 Est O2 277

I am confused by the K 02 and Est O2.

Any ideas?
